Charting Pediatrics

Jan 21, 2020

Last season on the podcast we discussed the initial diagnosis and lifestyle management of hypertension in pediatric patients. If you have not had the opportunity to listen to that episode, go back and check out Season 2, Episode 36 as it will set the back drop for today’s discussion as we dive more specifically into medication management for pediatric hypertension patients.

In this episode we discuss medication management for pediatric hypertension patients with a pediatric cardiologist, Steve Daniels, MD, PhD and a clinical pharmacist, Dr. Megan Greene.

Dr. Greene is a pediatric clinical pharmacist at Children’s Hospital Colorado with a specialization in critical care and kidney and liver transplant pharmaceutical support, and also works in our pediatric hypertension clinic.

Dr. Daniels is the Pediatrician-in-Chief at Children’s Hospital Colorado and L. Joseph Butterfield Chair of Pediatrics within the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he is a professor of pediatrics and epidemiology. He is a cardiologist by training and a sought-out expert in the fields of pediatric hypertension, dyslipidemia, and pediatric nutrition.
