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 in Europe through percutaneous cardiovascular interventions.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life of the population by reducing the impact of cardiac rhythm disturbances and reduce sudden cardiac death.
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.
OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Promoting studies, registries and educational initiatives in the pre-hospital management of acute cardiovascular conditions.
Founded by Eva Swhan (SW) in 2008, and after the publication of a position paper on pre-hospital management of STEMI, it marked a long pause before being brought back to the scene of ACCA by Farzin Beygui (FR).Based on the enlarged scope of acute cardiovascular care and considering the importance of the pre-hospital phase into the entire acute cardiovascular care process , ACCA is investing in diversities in main attitude in emergency situations (in regions and countries) in order to make some recommendations on optimised behaviour.The study group aims to be a bridge between different actors of pre-hospital care (emergency specialists, paramedics, general practitioners…) and those managing patients after hospital admission (cardiologists, intensivists, surgeons, radiologists…)
ACCA, EUSEM and ERC are closely collaborating to improve the quality of the management of acute cardiac conditions.
This is the first paper ever on the specific prehospital management of chest pain and dyspnea
It is symptom based so particularly useful for emergency specialists in the PH setting.
It provides recommendations on practical aspects of medication and equipment on board, competence and destination of patients
