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 2021 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.!!

Week 1: Acute cardiac imaging - 10 to 16 May
Imaging is becoming more and more important in all aspects of medicine including cardiology. Cardiology represents an area where imaging is often needed acutely – cardiologist working in the acute arena therefore needs to have a high degree of knowledge on cardiac imaging.

Week 2 : Out of Hospital Cardiac arrest - 17 to 23 May
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.

Week 3 : Post Resuscitation care in ICU after Cardiac Arrest - 24 to 30 May
Patients admitted comatose after an out of hospital cardiac arrest will all experience some aspects of the complex post cardiac arrest syndrome.

Week 4: MCS - 31 May to 6 June
Temporary Mechanical Circulatory Support is an exciting and rapidly growing highly invasive treatment. The use of temporary MCS in cardiogenic shock and refractory cardiac arrest is increasing despite lack of randomized evidence. It is therefore important that we join scientific efforts to optimize triage and usage of this modality.

Each week, a new topic and related resources will be made accessible to you.

EUSEM is joining the Week 2 : Out of Hospital Cardiac arrest

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.
