EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Nov. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CHF Solutions, Inc. (CHFS), today announces the launch of its new educational webinar featuring Daniel Beckles, M.D., Ph.D., director of Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery at UHS Heart and Vascular Institute, Vestal, N.Y. The webinar can be accessed on the company’s website, www.chf-solutions.com.
The 17-minute, pre-recorded webinar is designed to provide medical professionals with an overview of the common clinical issues associated with fluid overload in the cardiac surgery space and how the company’s Aquadex FlexFlow system may provide a clinical solution to removing excess fluid for post-cardiac surgery patients, who have failed diuretic therapy.
“Fluid overload poses a tremendous potential risk following cardiac surgery, and improper fluid management can result in complications, readmissions, and increased mortality,” said Dr. Beckles. “My hope in providing this overview is to educate professionals on the potential risks and to demystify cardiorenal syndrome. With solutions such as Aquadex FlexFlow therapy, surgeons can treat fluid overload post-cardiac surgery and, I believe, can improve overall quality and patient outcomes.”
Topics covered include:
- Trends in adult cardiovascular surgery
- Complications resulting from cardiovascular surgery, including fluid overload
- The role of ultrafiltration in post-op cardiovascular patients
- Aquadex FlexFlow and first-hand experience using the device following cardiac surgery
“Providing this webinar for medical professionals supports our ongoing strategy to highlight the multiple uses of our Aquadex FlexFlow system. We recently announced expanded commercialization of Aquadex FlexFlow therapy into the post-cardiovascular surgery market, and Dr. Beckles’s experience supports the value of that approach,” commented John Erb, chairman and CEO of CHF-Solutions. “We will continue to explore the best ways to optimize patient care through fluid management and look forward to the opportunity to inform medical professionals and investors on our approach and execution.”
