Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is a life-threatening disease.
To increase awareness on optimised 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 recommendations on best practices 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 the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), the European Society of Emergency Medicine (EUSEM) and ESICM.
