Acute CV Days: 29 April - 2 June 2024

Working hands-in-hands for best cardiac patient outcome

AcuteCVDays is a campaign led by the Association for Acute CardioVascular Care (ACVC) of the ESC, aiming at increasing awareness on specific cardiac diseases and providing quick and free access to a selection of useful tools and resources that may improve your knowledge and skills in the field.

Acute cardiovascular care is not just the matter of cardiologists but concerns all healthcare professionals involved in the management of critically ill cardiac patients.

For that reason, the 2024 edition is presented as a multidisciplinary collaboration with the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the European Society of Emergency Medicine (EUSEM), the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine (ESICM) and the European Extracorporeal Life Support Organization (EuroElso).

We must all work together to take care and to improve the outcome of these patients.

Let us all join forces.!!

Out of Hospital Cardiac Arrest is an emergent and extremely challenging condition. Emergent rescue within carefully planned systems of care, including lay rescuers and professionals of various disciplines, are of paramount importance in saving patients lives.
