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

Target audience

Paediatric cardiac and vascular surgeons, cardiovascular anaesthetists, perfusionists, intensivists, paediatric and general anaesthetists, anaesthesia certified nurses, nurses, interns, and medical students.
