Corona Affects Not Only Lungs, But Heart As well

The corona virus attacks not only the lungs but also the heart. Till now, this infection was seen to be associated with symptoms like difficulty in breathing, fever and cold, but a Texas University study has proved that this infection can affect heart beats as well.

Dr. Randeep Guleria, director of AIIMS, says that the data coming from all countries shows the different effects of the virus. One out of every five cases of corona showed signs of heart damage.

At the same time, according to the American College of Cardiology, 10.5 percent of patients died of heart attack due to Kovid-19 infection. The patient has to be placed in a ventilator or ICU after infection due to the age of 60 and already having heart disease.

Damage to heart muscle
According to a study published in the journal JAMA Cardiology called ‘Possible effects of the virus on the cardiovascular system’, initially the patient succumbed to pneumonia. At the same time, in addition to the symptoms of cough and cold, there is a lack of oxygen in the body, which causes difficulty in breathing.

Meanwhile, the virus starts damaging the heart muscle. If the patient is already suffering from heart disease then his condition becomes serious within a few days.

Initial investigation does not yield results
Infection has a gradual effect on heart rate. It is undetectable in the initial investigation and the patient’s condition becomes critical. According to cardiologists, there is a need to study it deeply.

At present, understanding the virus remains a challenge for the medical world. In some studies, it has been confirmed to have an effect on one part of the patient, while in some it also affects different organs. Therefore, extra caution is required at the time of treatment. Correct monitoring is very important if there are any signs of heart rate fluctuations.
