Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pregnancy is associated with major hemodynamic changes in the cardiovascular system that can contribute to greater morbidity and mortality in women with underlying heart disease. Therefore, the diagnosis and management of these disorders in the pregnant patient require understanding of cardiovascular physiology during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and the puerperium. It is also essential to have knowledge about safety and utility of various diagnostic modalities and drugs during pregnancy to treat maternal heart disease without compromising fetal well-being.
