Our mission is to become a worldwide reference for education in the field for all professionals involved in the process to disseminate 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.
Our mission is to promote excellence in research, practice, education and policy in cardiovascular health, primary and secondary prevention.
Our mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Improving the quality of life and reducing sudden cardiac death by limiting the impact of heart rhythm disturbances.
Our mission is to improve quality of life and longevity, through better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, including the establishment of networks for its management, education and research.
The ESC Working Groups' goal is to stimulate and disseminate scientific knowledge in different fields of cardiology.
The ESC Councils' goal is to share knowledge among medical professionals practising in specific cardiology domains.
Training in the more intensive aspects of acute cardiac care varies considerably across Europe. In some countries, there are formal rotations through cardiac ICU or ICCU but in others experience is gained on a more ad hoc basis. In either situation, young cardiology trainees are often the first to be called when a cardiac patient’s condition deteriorates. Even if you are only on call for a non-intensive CCU, it is crucial to know when the patient needs transfer to a more intensive unit and what you can do to prevent the situation deteriorating to this degree. In the early stages of your training dealing with the deteriorating patient at night when less senior support is available is a major challenge. In this session from the ESC Congress in Barcelona 2014, we are privileged to hear three high quality talks from experts in the field. First Susanna Price talks about invasive and non-invasive ventilation. Then Christiaan Vrints takes us through acute kidney injury, prevention as well as treatment with renal replacement therapy. Finally Iwan Van de Horst covers inotropic support, clearly distinguishing which hypotensive patients will benefit and why.There is something here for anyone with an interest in acute cardiac care at any stage of your training.David Walker, ACCA committee Web, Comm and Press Chaiperson
