We are pleased to invite you on behalf of the Department of Cardiology and Intensive Care Medicine of the Landeskrankenhaus Graz II to an exclusive symposium on the topic of syncope.
Registration is open now!
global cerebral hypoperfusion is a final consequence of various, sometimes complex, mechanisms that lead to syncope. The targeted clarification of this symptom still causes major challenges in different medical areas.
We have succeeded in inviting a number of renowned experts who will discuss the various causes of syncope.
Alessandra Fanciulli and Rose-Anne Kenny are members of the Task Force for the Development of the European Guidelines on Syncope. Rose-Anne Kenny has set up a large Falls and Syncope Unit (FASU) in Dublin. She has published a notable number of publications on the topic of Syncope and will give us an overview on the guidelines. Alessandra Fanciulli, a recognized specialist for autonomic disorders of the nervous system, will speak about orthostatic syncope.
Wilhelm Grander, who has been dealing with the pathophysiology of reflex syncope for many years, will bring give us an insight in this topic.
Daniel Scherr, head of rhythmology in the clinical cardiology department at the MUG in Graz is our expert for complex rhythmological issues. He will deal with the important topic of cardiac syncope.
Michael Nürnberg, rhythmologist at the Wilhelminenspital Vienna and expert for invasive and non-invasive rhythmology, will address the topic of unclear syncope and its clarification.
All presentations are supplemented by illustrative case studies from KAGES hospitals.
In the last part, the Styrian path to the structured clarification of syncope patients is presented. This approach was developed on the basis of the ESC guidelines for the hospitals of the Styrian Hospital Society. Its clarification algorithm leads to a faster diagnosis and an improvement of the diagnosis rate.
Due to the COVID-19 prevention measures, the training takes place both as a face-to-face and as an online event (attention: limited number of participants on site!). You can get more detailed information from this link. Look forward to exciting lectures and interesting discussions with our speakers!
NOTE: most lectures will be held in German language!
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
