Learn more about Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms (AAAs) and the importance of screening17:00 30/01/2013
Did you know that up to 5% of the population could have an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA)?
Alison Kite, Vascular Clinical Nurse Specialist for Aneurysm Care at University Hospital, Coventry will be presenting a talk on what an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm is; the care of patients with AAAs and the new National Screening Programme.
The abdominal aorta is the largest blood vessel in your body. In most cases, an abdominal aortic aneurysm causes no noticeable symptoms and does not pose a serious threat to health. However, this can mean that they can grow large enough which leads to an increased chance of them rupturing which can be fatal.
This session aims to give you the opportunity to meet an expert in this field and ask any questions you may have. This Medicine for Members event will take place between 5pm and 6pm on Wednesday 6th February 2013 in the Clinical Sciences Building, University Hospital, Clifford Bridge Road, Coventry.
To book a place for this session please contact Andrea Phillips, Membership Manager on 02476 964747 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, all are welcome.
