ABSTRACT

A 67-year-old man with a prior heart failure presented with fever, cough and dyspnea for 4 days Physical examination showed bilateral rales on the lung exam, yet no lower extremity edema The combination of symptoms, elevated inflammatory markers, normal baseline pro-B-type natriuretic peptide, PaO2/FiO(2) < 300 and positive swab suggested coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) rather than heart failure exacerbation We discuss the challenges in management of ARDS in COVID-19 patients that may initially mimic as acute exacerbation of heart failure
