Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Acute Cardiac Care has been undergoing a substantial transformation in recent years as the population ages and
our patients become more complex and require more multidisciplinary care. The International Conference on Acute Cardiac Care, held biennially in Israel, has long become one of the leading scientific events for acute cardiac care worldwide.

The 12th Acute Cardiac Care meeting was postponed from June 2020 to May 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With much thought and consideration, it was decided to postpone the frontal meeting to 2022 – date to be advised. Nevertheless, we plan to hold an interim focused update virtual meeting on 27-28 May, 2021.
In this meeting we will cover the broad spectrum of contemporary acute cardiac care, including acute coronary syndromes, anti-thrombotic therapy, reperfusion and revascularization, acute heart failure, management of arrhythmias in the acute setting and general intensive care, also a special Covid-19 and acute cardiac care update session.

This conference will bring together health care professionals from all relevant disciplines, including cardiologists, intensivists, emergency care, anesthesiologists, internists, cardiac surgeons, nurses, paramedics and other allied professionals. The meeting is held under the auspices of the Association for Acute CardioVascular Care (ACVC) of the ESC and the Israel Heart Society and is a major scientific event for all health care professionals working in acute cardiac care.

On behalf of the organizing committee, we look forward to your participation.
