Until On the Pulse | Maternal Health Matters: Pregnancy Cardio Tips Begins

Event Details:

Join us for our series of free, virtual presentations from physician leaders in research and care at the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation® (MHIF) and the Allina Health Minneapolis Heart Institute® (AHMHI) who will address the latest in cardiovascular treatment and advancements.

During pregnancy, the body undergoes significant physiological changes affecting the cardiovascular system. Pregnancy results in increased heart rates, stroke volume, cardiac output, enhanced myocardial contractility, and more, all of which can contribute to cardiovascular complications. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), it is estimated that up to 68% of pregnancy-related deaths caused by cardiovascular conditions are preventable. Raising awareness about adverse events during pregnancy and implementing prevention and treatment strategies are crucial steps in preventing cardiovascular complications during pregnancy.

Join this On the Pulse session to learn more about:

  • Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
  • Gestational Hypertension
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Post-partum cardiomyopathy
  • Overall long-term cardiovascular health after delivery
  • And more!
