    Start: Thursday 22nd Oct 2020 - End: Thursday 22nd Oct 2020 Venue:  

    Free Cardiorenal Forum Autumn webinar

    Thursday 22nd October 2020
    18.00 – 19.30 BST (GMT +1)

    We have been listening to your feedback that you would like more case-based and practical learning so we are delighted to be able offer this new webinar, led by experts in the field, that will discuss the practical approach to the management of hyperkalaemia in patients with cardiorenal disease.

    This will include the approach to broad-spectrum presentations, from those with potentially life-threatening hyperkalaemia through to the impact of high potassium on the use of prognostically important renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) inhibitors. Using case examples, they will discuss and guide on how to optimally manage such patients and avoid pitfalls that might have adverse consequences. Wherever possible, local pathways will be used and multidisciplinary discussion encouraged.

    At the end of the webinar, delegates will have learned/contributed to multidisciplinary discussion around the following topics:

    • The prevalence of hyperkalaemia, its potential causes, presentation, and association with adverse outcomes
    • The prognostic benefit of RAAS inhibitors in patients with chronic heart failure and those with CKD and how hyperkalaemia may influence their prescription
    • The role of potassium binders in managing acute hyperkalaemia and facilitating the use of RAAS inhibitors
    • What guidelines say
    • Review of local guidelines – are they contemporary?
    • Practical advice on how to manage hyperkalaemia in hospital and in the community
    • Multidisciplinary discussion around case histories including special groups, and clinical questions
