The course is promoted on an annual basis by the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research Section of the EACPR, and organised in collaboration with the Exercise Pathophysiology Laboratory - Cardiac Rehabilitation Division of the S.

Attendance:

28 attendants from 17 countries and 4 continents participated in the course.

Programme:

Faculty presentations were followed by animated discussions, and much appreciated was the Antoine Lavoisier Lecture on ‘Chronic heart failure exercise pathophysiology: insights from oxygen uptake kinetics‘ given by Prof. B. Grassi from the University of Udine, Italy. As after the previous edition, both course scientific content and quality of organisation were ranked very high by attendants in the final EBAC Evaluation Form.
