Abstract Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has impacted health and economy worldwide on an unprecedented scale. Patients have diverse clinical outcomes, but those with pre-existing cardiovascular (CV) disease, hypertension, and related conditions incur disproportionately worse outcome. The high infectivity of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is in part related to new mutations in the receptor binding domain, and acquisition of a furin cleavage site in the S spike protein. The continued viral shedding in the asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic individuals enhances its community transmission. The virus uses the ACE2 re...

Three cases of the application of focused cardiac ultrasound in patients with COVID-19 infection are presented. Cardiac point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), limited transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), and critical care echocardiography (CCE) were applied in cases of heart failure, pulmonary embolism, and myocarditis with thrombus respectively. The impact upon patient management and the global context of each presentation are discussed.
