Join Dr. Nicola Cosentino in this webinar as he discusses the central role of ECG in the setting of COVID-19 patients. In particular, this webinar will highlight the impact of COVID-19 on ECG findings and on the risk of acute and life-threatening rhythm disorders.

Cardiovascular disease plays a critical role in the COVID-19 pandemic. On the one hand, patients with cardiovascular risk factors and/or pre-existing cardiovascular disease and COVID-19 face an increased risk of a poor outcome. On the other hand, patients with COVID-19 have, even in the absence of underlying cardiovascular disease, a higher risk of developing cardiovascular and thrombotic complications.

In this webinar, we will discuss the central role of ECG in the setting of COVID-19 patients. In particular, this webinar will highlight the impact of COVID-19 on ECG findings and on the risk of acute and life-threatening rhythm disorders. Moreover, the pivotal role of continuous ECG monitoring in these patients will be addressed, by also providing clinical protocols that are integral to the acute and critical care of these high-risk patients.

This webinar will shed light on what is currently state-of-the-art in ECG monitoring in COVID-19 patients. This webinar is designed for all clinicians wishing to update their scientific knowledge on the topic. A live question and answer session with Dr. Cosentino will follow the webinar.

Learning Objectives

  • What are the main ECG findings in patients with COVID-19
  • What are the arrhythmias most commonly encountered in COVID-19 patients
  • How to identify COVID-19 patients who should be continuously monitored by ECG
  • Why ECG plays a critical role in the clinical management and risk stratification of COVID-19 patients
  • How ECG can modify the critical care of COVID-19 patients
