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.

Importance of characteristics and modalities of physical activity and exercise in defining the benefits to cardiovascular health within the general population: recommendations from the EACPR (Part I) L Vanhees et al. European Journal of Preventive Cardiology August 2012 vol. 19 no. 4 670-686, doi: 10.1177/2047487312437059 Importance of characteristics and modalities of physical activity and exercise in the management of cardiovascular health in individuals with cardiovascular risk factors: recommendations from the EACPR (Part II) L Vanhees et al.

More than 40 members of the EACPR joined efforts under the leadership of Prof L Vanhees to produce an “encyclopedia” of physical activity in the general population (Part I), individuals with cardiovascular risk factors (Part II) and in patients with cardiovascular disease (Part III). The aim is to define the characteristics of exercise (frequency, duration, intensity, etc) that are most likely to have a positive effect on the risk of cardiovascular disease. In the population at large, there is a clear dose-response curve on cardiovascular outcome. The individuals with risk factors will benefit from a reduction in blood pressure, weight, and metabolic risk factors. In patients with established heart disease, the program of exercise needs to be tailored to the individual patient, with the aim to reach the highest level of physical fitness that can be obtained, by combining aerobic and resistance exercises. Everything you always wanted to know about exercise and heart disease can be found in this series of articles…
