Dr. Alessandro Mezzani,
The ‘Second EACPR Training Course on the Use of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Cardiology’ was held on 9 and 10 November 2012 in Veruno, Italy.
The course is promoted on an annual basis 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 aims to promote the 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.
28 attendants from 17 countries and 4 continents participated in the course.
Faculty presentations were followed by animated discussions, and much appreciated was the Antoine Lavoisier Lecture on ‘Chronic heart failure exercise pathophysiology: insights from oxygen uptake kinetics‘ given by Prof. B. Grassi from the University of Udine, Italy. As after the previous edition, both course scientific content and quality of organisation were ranked very high by attendants in the final EBAC Evaluation Form.
The ‘Third EACPR Training Course on the Use of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Cardiology’ will be held on 8 - 9 November 2013 at the S. Maugeri Foundation IRCCS, Scientific Institute of Veruno, Veruno (NO), Italy.
The target audience of the course is formed by Cardiologists, Physiotherapists, Nurses, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine 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 on the next course is available here.
