ESC Acute Cardiovascular Care Association launched
Date:8/28/2012

ACCA was previously the ESC Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care. Today it becomes one of six ESC Associations, whose presidents are invited to ESC Board meetings. "It will be easier to inform the ESC Board about the activities of the association," said Professor Christiaan Vrints (Belgium), outgoing chairman of the Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care. "We will also have a bigger impact on the policies and the development of the ESC as an organisation."

The Working Group on Acute Cardiac Care had the largest and fastest growing membership of ESC working groups. Over the past 2 years it grew from just below 700 to more than 1,100 members. One in five of all members of ESC working groups belong to acute cardiac care.

"We're confident that we have the critical mass in terms of members to be a successful association," said Professor Peter Clemmensen (Denmark), ACCA's first president. "We will be more visible as an association and our vision and hope is that we will attract even more members."

The new association will expand its scope beyond the activities of the intensive cardiac care unit (ICCU), which was the original focus of the working group. Professor Vrints said: "The focus has been expanded to the first seven days of acute cardiovascular disease starting from the initial symptoms at home or work until the seventh day of hospitalisation. Nowadays, to improve the quality of care we have to focus on every aspect of acute cardiovascular care starting before admission to the hospital."

The expanded scope will see ACCA become involved in the pre-hospital phase of acute cardiovascular diseases, the diagnosis and treatment of patients in the emergency department, the transfer to the cath lab, the ICCU, and the cardiology department. This process of care involves many subspecialists beyond cardiology including emergency physicians, paramedics working in ambulances, and nurses working in the emergency department and ICCU.
