This webinar aims to enhance understanding of Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN), including its underlying physiology, diagnosis, and management, while emphasizing the collaborative efforts between neonatologists, paediatric intensivists and cardiologists to optimize patient care and outcomes. Our neonatologist speaker, Prof. Manuel Sánchez Luna, will discuss the importance of early recognition and therapeutic intervention in managing PPHN and key therapeutic strategies to improve outcomes and prevent mortality in the extremely severe cases. In addition, Prof. Sánchez Luna will address the utilization of non-invasive monitoring techniques, including pre- and post-ductal oxygen saturation, volumetric capnometry, and heart ultrasound, to identify PPHN and monitor response to specific therapies. By joining this session, you will also get insights from our cardiologist speaker, Prof. Maurice Beghetti, on the potential cardiac causes that may mimic PPHN in neonates and the importance of differentiating between cardiac and lung disease-induced pulmonary hypertension for appropriate treatment selection. Prof. Beghetti will also highlight different etiologies of PPHN and emphasize the importance of excluding cardiac lesions responsible for PPHN-like presentation. Target audience of this webinar: ICU Doctors in training – PICU, NICU and CICU; Cardiology doctors in training, ICU nurses, ECMO specialists, and other Allied Health Professionals. *This webinar is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from Masimo.
