Coronavirus new symptom heart attack
The whole world has become helpless due to spread of coronavirus worldwide. The virus has already spread to more than 200 countries and regions, over 38500 people died of the virus as no vaccine invented so far.
Many of those cases would be mild, and some people might show no symptoms at all. But the prospect of being infected with a new virus can be frightening. The symptoms to look out for, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are fever, coughing and shortness of breath. These symptoms usually appear between two days and two weeks of exposure to the virus.
According to a report in the Journal of the American Medical Association, as many as 98% of COVID-19 patients who were hospitalized had a fever, between 76% and 82% had a dry cough, and 11% to 44% reported exhaustion and fatigue.
In more serious cases of COVID-19, patients experience pneumonia, which means their lungs begin to fill with pockets of pus or fluid. This leads to intense shortness of breath and painful coughing.
Recently, US scientists have added "heart attack" as a potential symptom for coronavirus.
A 64-year-old patient recently admitted at a hospital in Brooklyn with symptoms looking like those seen in patients having a serious heart attack.
An electrocardiogram revealed an ominous heart rhythm. The patient had high blood levels of a protein called troponin, a sign of damaged heart muscle. Doctors rushed to open the patient’s blocked arteries — but found that no arteries were blocked.
The patient was not having a heart attack. The culprit was the coronavirus. The Brooklyn patient recovered after 12 days in the hospital and is now at home. But there have been reports of similar patients in the United States and abroad, and the cases have raised troubling questions for doctors.
“We were thinking lungs, lungs, lungs — with us in a supportive role,” said Dr John Rumsfeld, chief science and quality officer at the American College of Cardiology. “Then all of a sudden we began to hear about the potential direct impact on the heart.”
Earlier, a study by researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center said a coronavirus patient without a previous heart problem could have a heart attack.
The lead researcher of the study Mohammad Madzid said that even if anyone did not already have heart disease, the coronavirus disease could potentially affect the heart tissue. That is, in addition to heart disease, coronavirus can cause any heart attack. And those who already have heart disease are at higher risk.
