Top Experts on Vascular Health

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to devastate American patients, Screen Shot 2020-07-05 at 2.22.28 PMholding steady as the leading cause of death for adults.1 Further, vascular disorders are correlated with worse outcomes for COVID-19 and many other conditions. Calroy Health Sciences, the makers of Arterosil, is hosting this webinar because we believe the prevention of vascular and endothelial dysfunction must be a priority for all clinicians.

Clinical Takeaways:

  • Understand the foundational role of the endothelium through a systems biology lens
  • Describe how the endothelium acts as a foundational structure for overall cardiovascular health in response to new discoveries from the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Identify the multiple roles of the endothelial glycocalyx (EGX), including its protective, regulatory and communication roles for endothelial function
  • Explain how the EGX is damaged through several common conditions
  • Discuss optimum testing options for endothelial function
  • Apply clinical treatments proven to protect and restore EGX structure and function
