Professor Jon Hyett
Head of High-Risk Obstetrics and a Senior Staff Specialist in Obstetrics, and Maternal and Fetal Medicine
Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, Australia
Preeclampsia is a major cause of maternal, fetal, and neonatal morbidity. Prediction and prevention of pre-eclampsia is the key action to reduce the incidence of this condition. It is, however, equally important to manage the condition later in the pregnancy when symptoms appear to enable better outcomes. Different tools are needed for different scenarios and settings.
In this webinar, Professor Hyett presents methods for first trimester screening and 2nd and 3rd trimester aid in diagnosis for pre-eclampsia, plus:
- Introduces internationally recommended concepts of preeclampsia screening and prophylaxis, including biochemical 1st trimester screening.
- Presents different approaches to aid in diagnosis and short-term prediction for symptomatic patients later in the pregnancy. He will also discuss how to make pre-eclampsia management easier to implement and more accessible to all.
