Acute Cardiovascular Days - Pulmonary Embolism

Acute CVDays back 2022 600x150

Welcome to the 2022 Edition of the AcuteCVDays, focusing on Pulmonary Embolism

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a life-threatening disease.

To increase awareness on optimized acute cardiovascular care for patients suffering PE across Europe, the Association for Acute Cardiovascular Care (ACVC) of the ESC proposes to convene this marketing campaign  called AcuteCVdays to optimize patient care and outcomes.

The objective is to disseminate knowledge as well as recommendation on best practice on how to treat patients with Acute PE: how to diagnose, risk stratify and stabilize but also how to organise the team in charge

This programme is delivered by the Association for Acute Cardiovascular Care (ACVC) with the Scientific collaboration of the ESC Working Group on Pulmonary Circulation & Right Ventricular Function and in close partnership with ERC, EUSEM and ESICM.

EUSEM is collaborating with the following webcasts that will be openly accessible on the EUSEM Academy from May 2nd till June 4. The link will take you directly to the recording.

Used Emergency Cars Needed in Ukraine

Our Ukrainian colleagues are requesting help to acquire used emergency cars.

#Ukraine is facing with problems related to the lack of emergency cars. Many emergency vehicles were destroyed as they were used to evacuate wounded people, both civilians and military, from the battlefield zone.

Ukrainian Emergency Services need to acquire used cars, that could operate in hot spots and help them to save lives.

If you can help, please contact Dr Mariia Suleman, at the All-Ukrainian Resuscitation Council and Emergency Medicine (ARCEM) #emergencymedicine #paramedics #ambulanceservice

Paediatric resources for Ukrainian support

The Paediatric Branch of EUSEM and European Academy of Paediatrics (EAPS) initiated an open access repository that is meant to provide clinicians with shared resources to facilitate provision of optimal care to Ukrainian refugee children in many settings (i.e. in the field, in the in-hospital or out-of hospital setting). Resources can be surfed by topic or by issuing source, also a refugee data collection tool and the Ukrainian vaccination schedule can be found here.

The repository will be updated on a regular basis.

If you wish to contribute to sharing resources, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . The material will undergo assessment by our working group in order to be uploaded in this repository.
