Join our second general day designed to offer insight into crucial aspects of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). We will delve into key topics, including the impact of CHD on pregnancy, the significance of pre-conception counseling and contraception, emergencies in ACHD, infective endocarditis, cyanosis and pulmonary hypertension, single ventricle physiology, arrhythmias, and the transitional journey from pediatric to adult services. The program addresses critical issues related to education and adherence to cardiac care.
This meeting aims to equip participants with a deep understanding of the challenges that individuals with CHD may face, particularly when seeking care in hospitals lacking dedicated adult congenital heart disease services. Whether dealing with acute cardiac or non-cardiac issues, this training day aims to empower healthcare professionals to navigate and address the unique needs of these patients. Moreover, we aim to shed light on a less-explored but essential cardiology sub-specialty. This field boasts a captivating pathophysiology, distinctive anatomy, and a range of pertinent issues.
By attending, you will understand:
The implications of CHD on pregnancy
How to deal with acute problems in patients with CHD (emergencies, infections, arrhythmias, complications from PH and cyanosis)
The single ventricle circulation and its acute and chronic issues
