What’s in it for me?
After this webinar, you will better understand:

  • the updates in current evidence, best practice and different diagnostic and therapeutic interventions for low cardiac output syndrome after cardiac surgery in paediatric patients undergoing congenital heart surgery;
  • the roles of different inotropes like Milrinone and Levosimendan in this unique population; this would be discussed in the light of the supportive evidence;
  • the values of perioperative monitoring of cerebral and somatic oxygenation using the near-infrared spectroscopy in paediatric patients with low cardiac output syndrome
