COVID-19 and Cardiovascular Disease
Long-term symptoms experienced by COVID-19 “long-haulers,” now referred to as the Post-Acute COVID-19 Syndrome (PACS), are relatively common in individuals who experienced even mild COVID-19 infection. Although no one is quite sure why some symptoms seem to stick around months after the initial infection it is clear, though, that symptoms can be debilitating ranging from extreme fatigue and lethargy to shortness of breath and chest pain to brain fog. Join us for a conversation around the acute and chronic cardiovascular manifestations of COVID-19 and what the future may hold for those suffering from PACS.
Glenn Hirsch, MD, MHS, FACC serves as Chief of the Division of Cardiology at National Jewish Health and Medical Director of the Cardiovascular Service Line at National Jewish Health and St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, CO. He sees patients with cardiovascular manifestations of PACS at the National Jewish Health Center for Post-COVID-19 Care and Recovery. Dr. Hirsch received his medical degree from Loyola University of Chicago-Stritch School of Medicine and his MHS from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He completed internship and residency in internal medicine at The University of Michigan and his cardiovascular medicine fellowship at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute and is a former faculty member of The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
