Triage and Monitor COVID-19 Patients' heart 

How COVID-19 Impacts the Heart

The Challenge: Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis During COVID-19

Point of care ultrasound (POCUS) is helping clinicians identify and monitor COVID-19 patients' heart symptoms on the frontlines.

Clinicians need automated solutions to support decisions at COVID-19 patients' bedsides.


Ultrasound analysis at Point-of-care is still mostly done visually, in a subjective process that is both prone to error and highly dependent on the user's experience


The rising number of cardiac procedures needed is creating a load on all clinicians, while clinical guides recommend minimizing scans and contact with patients

Recent data show that 51% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients who died had heart damage 

Clinicians believe what causes heart problems identified in COVID-19 patients to be one of the pandemic's “critical unknowns"

Key Benefits

Clinical protocols recommend performing limited cardiac ultrasound scans including Left and Right ventricles analysis to detect cardiac dysfunction in patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19.


Our FDA Cleared and CE Marked solutions, LVivo EF and LVivo RV, provide automated, quantified analysis of the Left and Right Ventricle, including key measurements about each ventricle’s size and function.

Case study: DiA on the frontlines

A 66 y/o COVID-19 patient arrived at the ED with tachycardia and an ECG showing T-wave abnormality.


LVivo EF on Vscan Extend ultrasound delivered immediate results of normal Ejection Fraction (55%) which supported the physician's conclusion that viral myocarditis as the possible cause was unlikely.

LVivo EF

Ejection Fraction is a key indicator of left ventricular cardiac dysfunction, which protocols recommend monitoring to help triage COVID-19 patients.

LVivo EF by DiA provides automated analysis of the left ventricle, from 4CH and/or 2CH views, including single and Biplane: EF, End-Systolic Volume (ESV), End-Diastolic Volume (ED) Stroke Volume and Global Longitudinal Strain.

LVivo RV

Studies show that assessing the heart’s RV size and function is a key indicator of cardiac dysfunction including pulmonary embolism and heart failure common in COVID-19 patients.

LVivo RV provides automated analysis of the right  ventricle, from 4CH modified/ focused apical view including:  Fractional Area Change (FAC), EDA, ESA, Free Wall Strain and TAPSE. 

Objective and reproducible analysis of cardiac function

Faster and more confident clinical decisions - conserve additional resources needed

Reduce scan time, load on medical staff and bottlenecks

Minimize patient contact and potential exposure

 to infection

"LVivo EF makes it possible for clinicians to quickly, accurately and safely analyze cardiac function at bedside. For patients with COVID-19...being able to rapidly and accurately detect the EF at the point of care can save precious time and improve patient outcomes."
