This webinar will introduce the major cardiovascular changes that have been characterized following spinal cord injury in animal models and the clinical population. Chris will share some exciting results from recent studies in which his group has tested the efficacy of novel therapies to improve cardiovascular function. Finally, he will provide his outlook for the future of the field.
- Identify and define the major cardiovascular changes that occur following spinal cord injury
- Compare and contrast peripheral and central contributions to cardiovascular dysfunction following spinal cord injury
- Describe some promising interventions that can be used in the acute and/or chronic setting following spinal cord injury to offset cardiovascular dysfunction
