Cardiological screening tests after Covid-19

2021. January 21.

Prolonged symptoms, fatigue and weakness often persist after a COVID-19 infection, which may be indicative of possible longer-term respiratory and cardiovascular complications of the coronavirus. Mainly with more symptomatic cases but also with asymptomatic infections, scarring may develop in the lungs, causing myocarditis, myocardial infarction, heart failure, and thrombotic events due to increased coagulation.

We recommend our post-COVID-19 cardiology screening to rule out complications, detect complications early, and for you to resume exercising safely after a COVID-19 infection.

We recommend a basic cardiological screening for all patients with COVID-19 infection, which shows the existence of possible chronic inflammation and myocardial damage using specialist examinations and laboratory tests.

With a complex cardiological screening we can perform a much broader screening to detect complications after COVID-19. In addition to the signs of chronic inflammation and myocardial damage, we can detect latent heart failure, an increased tendency toward blood clotting, possible arrhythmias and, along with a lung CT scan, even signs of minimal lung damage can be detected.

Cardiological screening after COVID-19

  • Cardiology examination
  • Resting ECG
  • Heart ultrasound examination
  • Pulse oximetry
  • Chest x-ray
  • COVID-19 cardiology lab test package (sensitive troponin I, CRP, IgG serology, general lab test for blood lipids)
  • COVID-19 antigen rapid test (if necessary)

Complex cardiological screening after COVID-19

  • Cardiology examination
  • Resting ECG
  • Heart ultrasound examination
  • Pulse oximetry
  • Chest x-ray or lung CT screening (optional)
  • Holter ECG monitoring
  • COVID-19 extended cardiology lab test package (sensitive troponin I, CRP, NT-proBNP, D-dimer, IgG serology, further lab tests as necessary)
  • COVID-19 antigen rapid test (if necessary)
