This module is an advanced-level, interactive case study, of a 45-year-old female, looking into the possible differential diagnoses with her signs/symptoms. The case study covers obstructive vs nonobstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) alongside other cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions. Throughout the case study and the investigative procedures described, we cover the different types of HCM and the symptoms associated with each.
The case study aims to support a differential diagnosis of obstructive or non-obstructive HCM from other cardiovascular or pulmonary conditions and support best practice in referral to expert centres.
Target HCP audience:
HCM specialists, specialist cardiologists
