      Ching, Patrick R; Lee, Calvin (BMJ Publishing Group, 2021-09-03)
      Remdesivir is an antiviral used for the treatment of COVID-19 requiring hospitalisation. Information on its cardiovascular safety profile is scarce. We report the case of a 37-year-old man with COVID-19 who developed bradycardia after receiving remdesivir. We recommend a baseline ECG for all patients prior to receiving remdesivir and continuous cardiac monitoring during treatment, especially among those with underlying cardiovascular disease, elderly and using β-blockers.
