RAASi and hyperkalemia in cardiorenal disease
During this educational program, new opportunities for optimizing outcomes in cardiorenal disease patients with hyperkalemia are disscussed in three lectures.
This course consists of the following lectures:
- RAAS inhibition in patients with kidney disease: balancing the benefits and risks - Prof. Patrick Rossignol, MD
- Addressing the risk of hyperkalemia: is there a sweet spot for potassium binding? - Prof. Peter van der Meer, MD
- Managing hyperkalemia in cardiorenal patients: Novel therapeutic insights to optimize outcomes - Prof. Matthew Weir, MD
After watching the videos on RAASi and hyperkalemia in cardiorenal disease, the learner should be able to:
- Explain the challenge of following guideline recommended (dose of) RAASi therapy in cardiorenal patients
- Recall the association between serum potassium levels and outcomes
- Describe determinants and prevalence of hyperkalemia in HF
- Explain the unmet need to treat hyperkalemia with older agents
- Name new agents in hyperkalemia management that result in improved outcomes in cardiorenal patients
- Describe details of trials that investigated/are investigating new potassium binders
- Patrick Rossignol, MD - Nancy, France
- Peter van der Meer, MD - Groningen, The Netherlands
- Matthew Weir, MD - Baltimore, MD, USA
This educational activity is designed for cardiologists in secondary care and other healthcare professionals with an interest in treating patients with cardiorenal disease.
