CDC/IDSA COVID-19 Clinician Call: COVID-19 & Myocarditis

Human coronavirus-associated myocarditis is known, and a number of coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19)–related myocarditis cases have been reported. The pathophysiology of COVID-19–related myocarditis is thought to be a combination of direct viral injury and cardiac damage due to the host's immune response.

This session will review the possible pathophysiology of COVID-19–related myocarditis, its clinical presentation, and the associated arrhythmias. In addition, criteria for screening and management of myocarditis relating to COVID-19 will be discussed. The webinar is presented in partnership with the Heart Rhythm Society.
