E-learning Potassium binding in heart failure management
In this series, three experts in heart failure discuss the dilemma of discontinuation/reducing RAASi and lose the benefits of RAASi vs. continued RAASi and accept the presence of hyperkalemia. Moreover, the option of novel potassium binders is presented, when and how to use these agents?
This educational program consists of three presentations on hyperkalemia and RAASi use in patients with heart failure.
This course consists of the following:
- Risks associated with hyperkalemia - Prof. Stefan Anker, MD, PhD – Berlin, Germany
- RAASi as a fundamental pillar in heart failure - Prof. Andrew Coats, MD – Coventry, UK
- The clinical dilemma of RAASi and hyperkalemia - Prof. Javed Butler, MD – Jackson, MS, USA
How to obtain your CME certificate
- Watch the three 3 lectures, and anwer the pre- and post-test questions
- Fill in the evaluation questions
- Download CME Certificate (if your score >70%)
After watching these three videos, the learner should be able to:
- Recall the definition and causes of hyperkalemia
- Explain the association between potassium levels and outcomes
- Reproduce findings from studies on the interplay between hyperkalemia, RAASi use and outcomes
- Recall findings from outcome trials with novel potassium binders
- Discuss when to use potassium binders
- Prof. Stefan Anker, MD, PhD – Berlin, Germany
- Prof. Andrew Coats, MD – Coventry, UK
- Prof. Javed Butler, MD – Jackson, MS, USA
