Cardiology Challenges

Emergency cardiac conditions are very common in the emergency department (ED), and they also represent high-risk conditions. Cardiac conditions constitute the greatest cause of death in developed countries, and they also account for a significant percentage of money paid out in medical malpractice cases against emergency physicians in the United States. For these reasons, emergency physicians and any other acute care providers must commit themselves to staying up-to-date on advances in optimal care of patients presenting with emergency cardiac conditions.

This year I am pleased to present our 9th Annual Emergency Cardiology Symposium, which will focus on a potpourri of challenging cardiac presentations to the emergency department. Our speakers all have special training and expertise in emergency cardiology and they will focus their efforts on bringing you the most cutting-edge information on an assortment of topics. I am confident that you will enjoy our sessions and learn the latest best practices to provide optimal care to your patients.
