Ok, got it
I regret to inform you that Acute Cardiovascular Care 2020, scheduled for 7-9 March, could not take place as planned. As you have no doubt seen in the news, the novel coronavirus (COVID–19) has been spreading in Europe. It means that many of you were prevented from travelling because of restrictions imposed by your national health authorities or your individual medical institutions. Although deeply disappointing, we could not proceed with the congress or with the scheduled exams to be held on site. Your health and safety are of the greatest priority to us. You have a vital role to play throughout the year but especially now, during the spread of the coronavirus. Most of the reported deaths from COVID-19 have been in patients with underlying cardiovascular disease.

Thank you for your understanding and support. Susanna Price,Association for Acute CardioVascular Care President 2018 - 2020
We are delighted to officially welcome you to Athens from 7-9 March 2020 for the annual congress of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association of the ESC.
This congress brings together cardiologists, intensivists, anaesthetists, internists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, paramedics and other allied professionals who care for acutely ill cardiac patients. Acute Cardiovascular Care congress is the leading scientific event in the field.
The 2020 congress offers in-depth scientific presentations by leading global experts, covering the spectrum of acute cardiac care, including acute coronary syndromes, acute heart failure, reperfusion andrevascularisation, mechanical circulatory support in shock or pre-shock, management of arrhythmias in the acute setting, refractory cardiac arrest, acute venous thromboembolism, and cardiothoracic intensive care, as well as secondary prevention, with a particular focus on antithrombotic therapy, lipid lowering and anti-diabetic strategies.
The Acute Cardiovascular Care Association strongly believes in the education of healthcare professionals as part of lifelong learning, but also including those who are early in their career. This congress will provide education and discussion for the next generation of clinicians and researchers, working alongside experts in the field, with the aim to promote dissemination of knowledge and improve patient outcomes. Education is a key mission for the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association – forming one of the main pillars of the ESC.
We look forward to welcoming you to Athens for Acute Cardiovascular Care 2020.
