Pre eclampsia and the heart
This recording demystifies what exactly pre-eclampsia is and its effects on the heart. . The panel discussed postnatal follow ups and the statistical incidence of cardiovascular disease in people who had been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia in pregnancy. The panel talked about learning the ways in which the risk of pre-eclampsia can be reduced and the physiology and science behind all these factors. This is an incredible opportunity to learn more about physiology and the complexity of the cardiovascular system.
