COVID-19 has impacted the primary management of cardiac conditions, decreasing the number of interventions of coronary diseases. Elective coronary treatments and imaging have been largely cancelled across the world to make way for increased resources for COVID-19 patients. The impact on these cardiac patients during these times may be drastic. The number of hospital patients presenting with coronary symptoms during the outbreak has also decreased internationally. In this review, we discuss how COVID-19 has affected primary cardiac intervention globally and our service, possible reasons why, and how morbidity rates can be reduced by introducing scoring systems and telemedicine.

COVID-19 first presented in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China in December 2019. Since then, it has rapidly spread across the world, and is now formally considered a pandemic. As of 4th of May more than 3.2 million people have been infected and over 250,000 people has died. Since the very start, scientists and researchers have tried to utilize this case to publish academic experiences and suggestions toward fighting this virus, which is lethal in some cases. To date, more than 9,000 academic papers have been published since December 2019. The quality of publications varies from a plane letter to editor to randomized studies. This review aims to analyse the current published literature related to COVID-19 and assess the quality of such articles.

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has significantly impacted the availability of cardiology services and management of cardiac conditions. Elective surgeries, outpatient appointments and cardiac imaging have been largely cancelled across the world due to the risk of infection transmission and the need for reallocation of resources to deal with the increasing number of COVID-19 patients. The impact on patients with cardiac co-morbidities during these times may be drastic. However, cardiologists and hospitals across the world have implemented measures to ensure on-going monitoring and care of patients remotely. In this review, we discuss the impact of COVID-19 on cardiac services including interventional cardiology services, cardiac imaging and outpatient appointments. In addition, implications for future research and clinical practice are also discussed.
