Get ready for the latest innovations in acute cardiac care
Date:9/16/2013

Sophia Antipolis, 16 September 2013. The Acute Cardiac Care Congress 2013 is the event of the year for the latest innovations in the field. The Congress is the annual meeting of the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association (ACCA) of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). It takes place during 12-14 October in Madrid, Spain, at the Hotel Auditorium.

Cutting edge science and treatments in acute cardiovascular care will be presented in more than 300 abstracts by scientists from across the globe and generate a rich source of news stories for journalists. The best research was selected from more than 600 abstract submissions. The full scientific programme is available here http://spo.escardio.org/default.aspx?eevtid=64&showResults=False

Front line clinical research, such as the first time use of pre-hospital hypothermia in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients will be presented by the SAMUR emergency system in Madrid.

Other scientific highlights include:

  • Too much sugar in the blood is a real problem for heart attack patients
  • Consequences of the Japan earthquake disaster on emergency services and heart attack deaths
  • Controversies surrounding primary Percutaneous Coronary Interventions
  • Impact of healthcare system delays for heart attack patients on return to work and retirement
  • Copeptin as a new biomarker for acute coronary syndromes
  • Pollution and acute cardiovascular hospitalisation
  • Cardiac rehabilitation and patient outcomes

For the first time there will be two sessions of Flash Presentations which will enable journalists to hear more late breaking science in a fast paced format.

The Congress Programme Committee has picked 12 high quality abstracts that will be given the accolade "ACCA's choice" in the scientific programme and on the abstract poster. They highlight the far reaching geography of top notch science being presented, with abstracts from Europe, China, Japan, Saudi Arabia, Israel and Brazil. Journalists can report on advances in their own countries and beyond.

Professor Hctor Bueno, ACCA President Elect, said: "The abstracts will showcase current advances and discoveries in acute cardiac care worldwide. Journalists can expect to hear about exciting new state of the science and the effectiveness of novel treatments in the field."

Media will find plenty of news in more than 40 high quality scientific sessions on every cardiovascular specialty including acute coronary syndromes, acute heart failure, cardiac arrest, arrhythmias, acute vascular syndromes, pre-hospital care and new systems of care. Experts will debate controversial issues such as when to initiate dual antiplatelet therapy and what type of reperfusion to use in heart attacks.

The ACCA Clinical Decision-Making Toolkit will be launched as the first pocket resource of clinical guidance for all acute cardiovascular syndromes in an easy-to-use format for immediate bedside decision making. Professor Bueno said: "ACCA's mission is to improve the quality of care and outcomes of patients with acute cardiovascular diseases and our new 'ACCA Toolkit' will help practitioners to achieve this."

The main theme of the congress, "Acute cardiovascular care: a multi-disciplinary endeavour", is reflected in the attendees with more than 1,200 cardiologists, emergency care physicians, intensive care physicians, internists, surgeons, imaging specialists, interventionists, nurses and paramedics set to attend. The majority of sessions have at least one non-cardiologist as a speaker or moderator.

Professor Peter Clemmensen, ACCA President, said: "The best acute cardiac care needs to have all professionals involved and that is the philosophy of this year's scientific programme. The multidisciplinary nature of the sessions will give journalists a rounded perspective on issues in acute cardiac care and access to today's views and findings in the field."
