Program Description:
This activity is a unique meeting bringing together cardiologists and maternal care specialists involved in caring for the pregnant patient with heart disease. Currently, cardiovascular disease is one of the highest causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. It is also a time when interdisciplinary management between primary care providers, obstetricians, and cardiologists is critical. This CME program is designed to help all providers to better recognize, counsel, and refer women with cardiovascular conditions before pregnancy; and for all providers who encounter pregnant women with cardiovascular disease to better manage them for safer outcomes.

Who Should Attend?
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians and other healthcare professionals who specialize in obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, cardiology, or primary care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the current trends of maternal cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
  • Understand the hemodynamic demands and pathophysiology of the pregnant patient with cardiovascular disease.
  • Understand which symptoms and findings should be referred for higher care.
  • Understand the current best practices for treatment of cardia c conditions during pregnancy.
  • Develop a management strategy for following these pregnancies closely and planning for all stages, including labor, delivery and postpartum.
  • Understand the current best practices for treatments of unexpected cardiovascular emergencies during pregnancy.
  • Understand cardiovascular disorders that can be transmitted genetically to the fetus.
  • Understand how to better counsel a patient with known cardiovascular disease for either pregnancy avoidance when appropriate, or for making the planned pregnancy as low risk as possible.
  • Understand the need for long term monitoring and management of newly recognized cardiovascular conditions even after delivery.
  • Understand the long term impact of these newly recognized conditions on the woman's health, and on any future pregnancies.

EXPLORE San Antonio

 

San Antonio is a tapestry of Mexican and American history. From exciting events to restaurants and attractions, San Antonio offers a unique diversity. But the city is also known for its beauty, with excellent examples of Southwestern architecture and a plush landscape rarely seen in such an arid environment, due in part to the San Antonio River that runs through the downtown area. Whether you simply want to remember the Alamo, stroll down the famous River Walk in Downtown San Antonio or sample the Tex-Mex cuisine, you'll find this Texas vacation spot has a charm that is distinct from any other American city.
