OUR MISSION: TO REDUCE THE BURDEN OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Dr. Alessandro Mezzani,
The ‘First EACPR Training Course on the Use of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Cardiology’ was held on 21 and 22 October 2011 in Veruno, Italy.
The course was promoted by the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research Section of the EACPR, and organised in collaboration with the Exercise Pathophysiology Laboratory-Cardiac Rehabilitation Division of the S. Maugeri Foundation IRCCS, Scientific Institute of Veruno, Italy, an Institution with a long-lasting experience in both clinical management and functional evaluation of cardiac patients.
The course aimed to promote knowledge and use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in cardiology, offering participants the opportunity to meet well-known experts in the field, assist in live demonstrations of cardiopulmonary exercise testing and discuss clinical cases.
Twenty-seven attendants from 20 countries and 3 continents participated in the course, which allowed a fruitful exchange of knowledge.
Faculty presentations were followed by animated discussions, and much appreciated was the Antoine Lavoisier Lecture on “Oxygen uptake kinetics as a determinant of exercise performance: from physiology to pathophysiology” given by Prof. A.M. Jones from the University of Exeter, UK. Both course scientific content and quality of organisation were ranked very high by attendants in the final EBAC Evaluation Form. Contrary to original plans (biennial frequency), the success of the initiative prompted the organisers to repeat it on an annual basis.
The ‘Second EACPR Training Course on the Use of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Cardiology’ will thus be held on 9 and 10 November 2012 at the Scientific Institute of Veruno of the S. Maugeri Foundation IRCCS, Veruno (NO), Italy.
The course target audience is formed by Cardiologists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Cardiac Rehabilitation Specialists and Exercise Physiologists.
The number of participants will be limited to 40, and registrations will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. Further information will soon be available in the EACPR website.
