Acute Cardiac Care: A Multi-Disciplinary Endeavour 

Acute Cardiac Care 2013

Topics: Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACS)
Date: 12 Oct 2013
Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) is very pleased to welcome you to Acute Cardiac Care Congress 2013!

The main theme of this edition is “Acute Cardiac Care: A multi-disciplinary endeavour".
Acute cardiovascular care begins in the moment the patient seeks medical attention, either at home, calling the emergency system, consulting his/her primary care physician or going to the emergency room. Then, acute cardiovascular care encompasses several processes of care focused on the presenting syndrome, which may need different levels of attention, from out of hospital to intensive cardiac care. Therefore, acute cardiovascular care requires networking through a multi-disciplinary approach.

The aim of the congress scientific programme is to develop a comprehensive multi-disciplinary review of all recent advances in acute and intensive cardiovascular care medicine.

Acute Cardiac Care should become the natural interactive forum for all specialists involved in acute cardiovascular care: cardiologists, emergency care physicians, intensive care physicians, internists, surgeons, imaging specialists, interventionists, nurses, paramedics, willing to integrate the acquired new information into their knowledge for patients care at the bedside from a truly multi-disciplinary approach.

Over the next three days, attendees will also have the opportunity to visit the exhibition area, to attend educational satellite symposia and meet with industry to discover the most recent state of the art technology and devices.

Welcome and thank you for being with us in Madrid!
