Acute Heart Failure and Complete AV Block in A Patient With Severe Covid-19 Pneumonia

1. Abstract

We describe a patient with severe COVID pneumonia, with acute heart failure, cardiogenic shock, and complete AV Block in a critical care unit designated to treat Covid-19 patients. Myocardial injury may occur in up to 31% of patients with Covid-19 pneumonia and has been related to increased mortality [1,2]. Whether myocardial injury might result from direct damage from the virus or related to complications of the disease is still unclear.
