Reaching the Edge: Kidneys in Advanced Heart Failure

November 05, 2022 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Session Description

Heart failure is common, costly, and deadly. It frequently requires multidisciplinary management, especially because recent medical and technological advancements have resulted in exponential improvement in patient survival and increased complexity in their care. This session discusses the nephrologic aspects of care for patients with advanced heart failure (such as a patient with a left ventricular assist device on maintenance hemodialysis) and provides an update on how nephrologists can have a role in their management.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Describe the interactions between the kidneys and heart in advanced heart failure
  • Explain the role of point-of-care ultrasound in volume assessment and management
