Join this online session that will update you on recent therapeutic advances in pulmonary hypertension and its relevance to patients with congenital heart disease. 

This training aims to provide a deeper physiological understanding of pulmonary hypertension in congenital heart disease. With specialised speakers, we hope that the sessions will be informative and provide a greater understanding of the challenges and dilemmas often faced in pulmonary hypertension to include atrial septa defects and pregnancy. Advanced mechanical support for patients with transposed great arteries will also be discussed 

This webinar will focus on:

  • Updates on novel pulmonary vasodilators and when to use them.  
  • Managing the pregnant patient with pulmonary hypertension 
  • When to close ASDs and when to leave alone 
  • Advanced support in TGA with pulmonary hypertension 

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered delegates up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
