In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, cardiology societies have issued new guidance on concerns related to the virus relevant to electrophysiologists and stroke centers.
Early reports show that among patients with COVID-19, nearly one-fifth of patients in the hospital and nearly one-half of those in the ICU had arrhythmias, and arrhythmia disorders during the recovery phase also appear to be common. This means that electrophysiologists and their staff may be in frequent contact with patients with COVID-19, putting them at risk, according to guidance issued by the Electrophysiology Section of the American College of Cardiology, the Electrocardiography and Arrhythmias Committee of the American Heart Association, and the Heart Rhythm Society.
