NICE has issued rapid clinical guidance on identifying and treating acute myocardial injury in patients with known or suspected Covid-19
This rapid clinical guideline from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) provides information to help health professionals who are not cardiology specialists to identify and treat acute myocardial injury (AMI) and its complications in adults with known or suspected Covid-19 but without known pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
Subjects covered in the guidance include:
- Communicating with patients;
- Minimising risk to patients and healthcare workers;
- Diagnosing AMI in patients with suspected or confirmed Covid-19;
- Managing myocardial injury in patients with suspected or confirmed Covid-19.
The guidance was originally published on 1 May 2020 and will be updated as the knowledge base and expert experience develops. To check for further updates, click here
