Cardiovascular diagnostic and screening tests can provide a wealth of information about the electrical cardiology activity, the rhythm of the heartbeat, how well the blood is pumping through the chambers and valves of the heart, how easily the blood flows blood through the coronary arteries to the heart muscle, and whether there are tumors or abnormalities in the structure of the cardiovascular system.
Some tests can even record heart activity to give doctors important details about whether activities like exercise or lying down can be contributing factors to symptoms.
Patients with prior cardiovascular and renal risk have been identified as particularly vulnerable to increased morbidity and mortality when suffering from COVID-19, and a significant proportion of patients may develop vascular injury in the context of the disease that carries increased fatality. Cardiology and kidney complications pose a problem, and it is likely that in the near future they could pose a threat to patients who have survived COVID-19.
Cardiovascular prevention measures must be preceded by the adoption, or maintenance where appropriate, of a healthy lifestyle, with special attention to diet, physical exercise and abstaining from toxic habits.\
