ACVC School 2022

The ACVC School offers the opportunity to develop skills in a state-of-the-art simulation lab. Seven workshops are specifically designed for small groups to optimise learning outcomes:

    • Echo-guided vascular access and pericardial drainage
    • Difficult airway management
    • Two clinical simulations focusing on communication and leadership
    • VA-ECMO management and troubleshooting
    • Comprehensive evaluation of congestion in acute heart failure
    • Mechanical ventilation

Participants' feedback:

 "An amazing learning experience. It was a pleasure to acquire some skills with such dedicated and enthusiastic experts. Thank you all for the event! I genuinely recommend the school."

"A great opportunity to put theory into practice, sharing knowledge, doubts and ideas with worldwide colleagues."

"The most impressive was the friendly relationship of instructor and participant."

"The school is the place for those who want to learn more skills or practice their dexterity in manoeuvres that for sure every cardiologist stumbles on in their medical practice. This school focuses on doing things, but medical knowledge is not neglected as there are some very accurate simulations where fast thinking and acting is essential in saving the patient. Only in this stressful situation you realise what you have to improve and that is a very important lesson to take back home."

"Very educating experience; we crave courses like this one."

"A unique chance to excel in acute cardiac care!"

"Interesting experience, perfect as a refresher, sharing specific knowledge and techniques in acute care cardiology and to meet cardiologists from other countries."
