VOORHEES, N.J., Dec. 15 Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) is an autosomal dominant disease causing acute attacks of intense edema. These attacks can result in life-threatening complications, including asphyxiation. Management of HAE in the emergency setting can be challenging, therefore it is particularly important for physicians to understand and utilize best practices for recognition and treatment of this complex condition.
To address the need for current education on HAE, Robert Michael Educational Institute LLC (RMEI) and Postgraduate Institute for Medicine (PIM) are jointly sponsoring a complimentary continuing medical education monograph entitled Management of Acute Hereditary Angioedema: Best Strategies for Emergency Care. The content for this monograph was taken from a live symposium which took place on October 6, 2009. This activity is supported by an educational grant from ViroPharma Incorporated.
Faculty reviewers for the monograph include Allen P. Kaplan, MD from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC; William R. Lumry, MD from the AARA Research Center in Dallas, TX; and Marc Riedl, MD from the University of California, Los Angeles David Geffen School of Medicine in Los Angeles, CA.
