The First European Summit on Acute Cardiovascular Care took place in October 2011 at the European Heart House in Sophia Antipolis (France).
The main objective of this summit was to bring together representatives of international acute cardiovascular care working groups or societies, in order to discuss and interact on various challenges faced by health professionals involved in the field of intensive care. We also perceived this first meeting as a great opportunity to share news and future plans of the working group, discuss potential challenges and opportunities and ways to cooperate. The event has attracted 50 participants from 22 countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech rep, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Israel, Latvia, Lebanon, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and UK. Not only cardiologists but also emergentists, intensivists, nurses, physicians, all involved in the process of Acute Cardiac Care were part of the audience, enabling great exchange and debate.
