Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection Causes Cardiac Complications

Respiratory syncytial virus (sin-SISH-uhl), commonly known as human respiratory syncytial virus or human orthopneumovirus, is an infectious virus that causes respiratory tract illnesses.
RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) is a common respiratory virus that causes mild, cold-like symptoms in most people. Although most people recover in a week or two, RSV can be dangerous, particularly in infants and the elderly.
The respiratory syncytial virus penetrates the body via the eyes, nose or mouth.It easily travels through the air over infected respiratory droplets.You or your child may get infected if someone with RSV coughs or sneezes around you.The virus is also transmitted to other people via direct contact, such as shaking hands.

A questionnaire survey identified 22 cases of myocarditis during respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection, and a literature search was conducted to learn more about their characteristics. ECG revealed conduction system disturbance (AV block) in 7 of 18 patients (38.8%), myocardial injury (ST-T change) in 9 of 18 patients (50.0%), and tachycardia in 3 of 18 patients (38.8%). (16.6 percent ). In 12 of the 14 patients, echocardiography revealed a significant decline in left-heart function. There were two deaths, one pacemaker implantation, and four patients with minor complications as a result of the procedure. Our findings imply that RSV myocarditis produced by RSV infection can be classified into three distinct pathophysiologies, each defined by conduction system disruption, myocardial injury, and increased autonomy.
