VIDEO: Examination of Cardiac COVID Long-Haulers

Siddharth Singh, M.D., director of the COVID-19 heart program, staff cardiologist and echocardiographer, Cedars-Sinai Hospital, explains how they work up cardiac patients in the Cedars-Sinai long-COVID clinic. He goes through the list of exams  and labs they use in these patients.

Cardiac patients at the Cedar-Sinai long-COVID clinic are evaluated with a basic physical exam, extensive family and medical history, an ECG, basic labs that include troponin and BNP, D-dimer, A1C, lipid panel and a metabolic profile since many patients have become much less active during the pandemic. Patients with symptoms are evaluated with an echocardiogram, including global longitudinal strain. If patients have abnormalities on the echo, or if there is suspected pericarditis or myocarditis, the patient is referred for a cardiac MRI with contrast.
