Methods: This retrospective observational study was carried out in the department of medicine in a tertiary care hospital, central India. Assess all the participants for post covid cardiovascular events, detailed history, clinical examination and all necessary investigation was done
Results: in our study Post COVID 19 cardiovascular events had occured in 17.6%. Majority of the patient were male (69.3%), most common age group was 51-60 years. Higher incidence of cardio vascular disease were reported in obese person. Common cardiovascular diseases found after COVID 19 infection were hypertension (35.3%), pulmonary embolism (23.5%), Myocarditis (20.6%), myocardial infarction (11.8%) and Arrhythmias were in 8.8% cases.
Conclusion: Overall observations indicate an increased incidence of hypertension and CVDs post recovery from COVID‑19. A dual therapy of ARBs was the preferred choice for management of hypertension. Regular follow‑up and close monitoring of symptoms to prevent further CV complications in COVID‑19 recovered patients is recommended.
