Webinar: Beyond Pain Crises: Acute Complications of Sickle Cell Disease
Thursday, April 19, 2018, 01:00pm - 02:00pm

Sickle cell disease (SCD) is the most common inherited blood disorder in the United States. Although most children with SCD will now survive to adulthood, many will experience serious complications. Educational efforts in sickle cell disease have focused primarily on pain management. But do you know that acute chest syndrome is the most common cause of death in SCD? Or how to determine if acute anemia is secondary to splenic sequestration or aplastic crisis? Other acute complications of SCD include infection, cerebral infarct, cholelithiasis and priapism. Through the use of interactive case studies we’ll review the presenting signs and symptoms of these acute complications, appropriate diagnostic work-up and evidence-based management. You'll leave this session confidently prepared to care for patients with sickle cell disease, beyond their pain crises.
