Post-COVID Cardiac Evaluation at Methodist Dallas

Post-COVID syndrome causes a range of symptoms that can resemble chronic fatigue syndrome. While the full extent of cardiac complications is unknown, some patients have persistent cardiovascular symptoms after COVID-19.

If left undiagnosed, cardiac conditions can have a profound effect on a person’s future quality of life. That’s why post-COVID cardiac evaluation is now recommended for some patients.

When cardiac evaluation is needed

Any patient with cardiac symptoms that are not resolving after 30 days of COVID-19 infection should have an evaluation.

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Heart palpitations

Common post-COVID cardiac findings

  • New-onset atrial dysrhythmias, primarily atrial fibrillation
  • Severe reduction in ejection fraction despite normal heart function before COVID-19
  • Pericardial effusions on echocardiograms
