Acute Cardiovascular Days - Acute Myocardial Infarction

Acute CVDays back 2022 600x150

Welcome to the 2023 Edition of the AcuteCVDays, focusing on Acute Myocardial Infarction

To increase awareness on optimized acute cardiovascular care for patients suffering Acute Myocardial Infarction 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 from both sides of the Atlantic on best practice on how to treat patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction: 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 northern American experts 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 1 till June 4. The link will take you directly to the recording.

Please find the educational materials from the  partners of the Acute Cardiovasculare Care initiative here: https://www.escardio.org/Marketing/Acute-CVDays

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.

How to reach WHO Academy

EUSEM has taken the lead in co-ordinating support for Ukraine between different NGOs. We want to be as efficient as possible by collaborating in the best way to optimize our help, thereby reaching out effectively to the people on the ground. We are in close contact with our national society member, the All-Ukrainian Resuscitation Council and Emergency Medicine (ARCEM). Their needs are not only equipment, but also training material. EUSEM, WHO Academy and other NGOs have joined together to create and disseminate ‚Äčeducational videos in a one-minute format for Ukrainian healthcare professionals and healthcare professionals operating in neighboring countries that are not trained in emergency medicine.
