Management of COVID-19 related cardiac complications

Roberto M. Lang, MD
Professor of Medicine,
Director, Noninvasive Cardiac Imaging Laboratory,
University of Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA
COVID-19 infection is typically associated with the respiratory system, but preliminary reports indicate that heart muscle damage may be observed in many cases. Watch two interviews with Prof. Roberto Lang, Director of the Noninvasive Cardiac Imaging Laboratory at the University of Chicago, where he shares his opinion on how existing, automated and robust echocardiography tools, designed to analyze volumes and strain of left and right ventricle, may help in the precise, long term cardiac assessment of post COVID-19 patients.

The role of imaging in COVID-19: A view for the present and the future

Alexandra Goncalves, MD, PhD, MMSc, FESC

Medical Officer for Cardiology and Personal Health at Philips

In this encore presentation from the June ESC Cardiac Roundtable, Dr. Goncalves discusses the role of imaging to help identify patients infected with COVID-19 and avoid further spreading of the infection as well as the important role imaging can play in the diagnosis of cardiac complications. Key learnings shared include ST segment elevation in COVID-19 patients, the use of CT to avoid false activation of the cathlab as well as the diagnosis of cardiac complications in COVID-19 patients. The role of imaging in COVID-19 continues to evolve as healthcare providers work to understand and manage the disease in patients globally.

Improving patient and staff experience: Emergency assessment of patient cardiac condition

Early assessment of patient cardiac condition in a field or emergency setting helps expedite targeted diagnostics and care in the field and once the patient arrives to the emergency department. See how Tempus PRO monitor/defibrillator with Philips emergency care informatics suite, provide two-way communication with imaging transfer to the ED staff, streamlining workflows to reduce time to key treatment needs.

Clinical confidence: Early indication of patient deterioration

Many cardiac diseases are detected in their late stages when clinical symptoms are obvious but the benefit of certain therapeutic options is limited. In order to optimize patient outcomes it is important to detect signs of patient deterioration before clinical symptoms become evident so treatment can be provided before irreversible damage to the heart occurs. Listen to Dr. Jorge Solis, Hospital Universitario 12 de Octubre, Madrid, describe how he utilized current guidelines, Philips imaging insights (EPIQ CVx with Philips TrueVue, IntelliSpace Portal) and the Philips IntelliSpace Cardiovascular platform to detect a mitral valve prolapse in its subclinical stage by monitoring a patient’s images and medical insights over time.

For SHD procedures, explore how the new Azurion with FlexArm plus EchoNavigator, EPIQ CVxi and IntelliSpace Cardiovascular provide procedural confidence and operational efficiency. See how our solution for CAD interventions, featuring Azurion, IntraSight and iFR, addresses the quadruple aim of healthcare. 


Hear from fellow Electrophysiologists how the KODEX-EPD system has the potential to greatly simplify navigation and support personalized ablation planning and delivery by allowing for highly detailed visualization of cardiac anatomy in real-time through its novel dielectric imaging technology.

ESC industry Q&A session:

Pushing boundaries of cardiac visualization with an innovative echo toolkit

Precise echocardiographic heart assessment is very important in early detection of subclinical stages of valvular heart disease, proper qualification for left atrium appendage occlusion or other structural heart disease interventions, as well as for monitoring cardiotoxic effects of COVID-19 infection. Join this live symposium to hear from Dr. Alexandra Goncalves, Medical Officer for Cardiology and Personal Health at Philips, and an expert panel about how Philips is delivering a new, innovative echo toolkit designed for clinical confidence in these scenarios.

Ger Janssen
Head of Digital Twin at Philips
Ger Janssen, head of Digital Twin at Philips, shares the company’s vision on the patient digital twin with two examples from clinical practice: 1. The anatomically intelligent HeartModel on the EPIQ CVx ultrasound systems and 2. The sim&size tool from Sim&Cure, which was integrated into the Azurion simulator for use at conferences. The session will cover the challenges related to patient digital twin, and how to address and translate via partnerships, including public-private ones.
