Abstract: Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a real time signal which can be used to analyze the functioning of the cardiac muscles. These electrical signals help us in identifying the heart related issues. It gives lot of clinical information about heart. Corona virus disease (COVID-19) is a disease caused by Corona virus and it spreads through saliva droplets or nose discharge. A person with COVID-19 might suffer from heart related issues. To lower the risk of cardiovascular injury, monitoring of ECG is vital for a person identified with COVID-19. By analyzing QTc and ST prolongations, we can identify the complications in heart like Myocardial Infraction (MI), Cardiac Arrest, Myocarditis, Acute cardiac injury and Arrhythmia with COVID-19. And also change in QTc value is observed in a person before and after chloroquine treatement. This systematic review reveals that identifying ECG patterns which is related to COVID-19 is vital.
Keywords: ECG, QTc, ST, COVID-19.
