The ECHO-COVID study investigated the effects on cardiac function in critically ill COVID -19 patients.

The primary aim of this study was to investigate the incidences and patterns of left and right ventricular dysfunction in the first echocardiographic examination performed after admission to the intensive care unit (ICU) in a large series of patients hospitalised for severe COVID-19.

The study referred to previous international collaborations with experts in critical care echocardiography (CCE) that use it in their usual practice to manage critically ill patients. Listen to the following podcast to learn more about this study’s findings and conclusions.
