Brief Summary:
A global study for a better understanding of the cardiovascular conditions that increase the risk of developing severe COVID-19, and a better characterization of cardiovascular complications in hospitalized patients with COVID-19.

Condition or disease
COVID-19 Cardiovascular Diseases

Detailed Description:

COVID-19 may be cardiotropic in a subset of patients. Both acute and pre-existing CVD impact outcomes unfavorably. It is possible that one common CVD treatment, medications that impact ACE-2 function, may impact outcomes either favorably or unfavorably.

However, studies so far have, perforce, been conducted with important limitations (e.g. small numbers, limited geographical representation, lack of data standardization for risk factors and outcomes, limited measurement, lack of appropriate adjustment for important confounders, and missing data). Considering the high global prevalence of CVD and its risk factors (e.g. hypertension and diabetes) and the suggested link with COVID19 it is urgent to initiate more robust studies to clarify the many issues early reports have engendered. So that investigators will conduct a global study for a better understanding of the cardiovascular conditions that increase the risk of developing severe COVID-19, and a better characterization of cardiovascular complications in hospitalized patients with COVID-19.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 5200 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: WHF COVID-19 and Cardiovascular Disease Survey
Actual Study Start Date : June 11, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 30, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 30, 2021



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of the patients for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) [ Time Frame: Outcome will be assessed at discharge and 30-day follow-up visit from the hospital admission date. ]
    MACE is defined as the presence of any of the following CVD conditions: myocarditis, arrhythmia, heart failure [including Left ventricular ejection fraction], acute coronary event, as per the hospital admission and discharge records. Data will be collected at each site by local investigators and sent to the coordinating center. Only data outlined on the entry and outcome forms will be collected.

  2. Assessment of the patients for Pulmonary outcomes including Pulmonary embolism, pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome, need of intensive care - number of days in ICU or ICCU, need of ventilator] [ Time Frame: at discharge and 30-day follow-up visits from the hospital admission date. ]
    Data will be collected at each site by local investigators and sent to the coordinating center. Only data outlined on the entry and outcome forms will be collected.

  3. Assessment of the patients for Neurological Outcomes including stroke and Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) [ Time Frame: at discharge and 30-day follow-up visits from the hospital admission date. ]
    Data will be collected at each site by local investigators and sent to the coordinating center. Only data outlined on the entry and outcome forms will be collected.

  4. All cause deaths [ Time Frame: any time during the hospital admission and at 30-day follow-up. ]
    Specific causes of death to be evaluated using CRF including sudden cardiac death, death due to Myocardial infarction, Death due to heart failure, death due to stroke

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Older Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
Participants will be recruited in any hospital where COVID19 patients are hospitalized. Investigators will invite all WHF members from 100+ countries to identify at least two recruiting centres in their respective countries. Each centre should recruit between 50 and 200 consecutive patients. There is no limit in the number of sites to take part.
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • All adults (as locally defined) with confirmed COVID-19 infection who are hospitalized are eligible.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients for whom investigators are unable to obtain informed consent will be excluded.
  • Patients who are unlikely to stay in the recruiting centre for 30 days (i.e. likely to be transferred)
