This in-depth CE offering will support you in effectively managing angioedema from the initial assessment to the most effective pharmacologic management.
This session offers information on how to differentiate various etiologies of angioedema, including hereditary and drug-induced reactions. Descriptions of physical findings are supplemented by graphic images and convenient reference tables for laboratory and diagnostic metrics. A thorough discussion of treatment and prophylactic agents for angioedema, including but not limited to C1 esterase inhibitor-recombinant, is also included.
