Assessing Retinal Blood Vessel Regulation in Retinal Disease

Description
WAVE On Demand-Day1-Bui: Assessing Retinal Blood

WAVE On Demand Notification -
Please click here to notify us you are watching this On Demand. 
This will ensure your CPD is uploaded quickly.
Certificate Notifications will be sent at the time of CPD verification by the OWA Office.

If you are watching this for the first time and intend to claim the CPD time of 0.5hrs - expect your CPD to be uploaded within 14 days of viewing.
Non members will also be contacted within this timeframe.

If you are watching to recap as you have already seen this presentation at WAVE Live, you are very welcome to watch any WAVE Live presentation but will not be eligible for any CPD.

Summary: The retina and brain are the highest consumers of energy in the body. These and other compartments of the central nervous system store very little energy and are almost entirely reliant on local mechanisms to maintain enough blood to support usage. A better understanding of how blood vessels respond to changes in local pressure (classical autoregulation) and changes in metabolic demand (neurovascular coupling) helps us to understand how the failure of autoregulation might lead to retinal disease.

Learning Objective: To better understand the mechanisms that underlying retinal vascular autoregulation.

Assessment: There are no MCQS with this lecture.
