Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to dissemintate knowledge & skills of Acute Cardiovascular Care
Our mission is to promote excellence in clinical diagnosis, research, technical development, and education in cardiovascular imaging in Europe.
Promoting excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our goal is to reduce the burden in cardiovascular disease in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our Mission is "to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death"
To improve quality of life and logevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
Working Groups goals is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
ESC Councils goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
For all physicians performing interventional EP, both ablations and implantations, trained or in training.
The concepts and practical advice also applies to other invasive cardiologists. The course refreshes concepts on radiation exposure, but presents more practical tips and tricks on how to reduce it than most other educational material on this topic. Both beginners and advanced operators will learn.
The Webinar will review some very practical steps that can be implemented to reduce the exposure during interventional electrophysiological procedures by a factor of 10 or more! Reducing exposure to your patients means also similar radiation exposure to yourself and the other cathlab personnel.
By the end of the Webinar, you should be able to estimate the radiation exposure to your patient by calculating effective dose (in mSv) and understand that value as a way to express the biological effect on your patient. You will be able to implement simple technical changes, workflow changes and improved shielding to achieve the goal of a drastic exposure reduction.
EHRA publication on radiation protection
Lukas Dekker, Hein Heidbuchel and Frieder Braunschweig - Minimizing x-ray dose exposure for EP physicians, patients and support staffThe EHRA Webinars are designed to help you improve your daily practice! The format includes a case based presentation, online assesssment and live discussions with the 3 key opinion leaders who will give you some useful tips for your daily clinical practice.
This programme is supported by Philips in the form of unrestricted educational grants. The EHRA Webinar 2014 scientific programme has not been influenced in any way by its sponsors.
This event's educational programme is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 1 hours of external CME credits. Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity.
