Under Pressure: Discussion of the CHAP Trial and Management of Hypertension in Pregnancy
What is the right target blood pressure (BP) for pregnant women with chronic hypertension? Join us for a special joint journal club hosted by the American College of Cardiology Cardio-Obstetrics Workgroup and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine as we discuss the Chronic Hypertension And Pregnancy (CHAP) trial results with lead author, Dr. Alan Tita.
The CHAP trial found improved maternal outcomes with targeting a BP of <140/90 mmHg compared with a strategy treating those only with severe range BPs without increase in small-for-gestational-age infants? Based on these trial results, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has revised their guidelines for a treatment threshold of less than 140/90 mmHg for initiating treatment or titrating medications for women with chronic hypertension in pregnancy.
During this webinar we will discuss how this trial has changed BP management guidelines for hypertension among pregnant women. Attendees will have the opportunity to pose questions to a multidisciplinary panel of MFM and cardiology leaders in cardio-obstetrics.
Target audience: cardiologists, obstetricians, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, family medicine providers, advanced practice providers in obstetrics or cardiology, trainees
