The 6th International Conference on Cardiology & Cardiac Nursing is scheduled during July 18-19, 2019 at Zurich, Switzerland which focuses on the theme of Dive deep into the mechanism of Heart. This Cardiology Conference is designed to provide diverse and current education that will keep medical professionals alongside of the issues affecting the diagnosis, treatment of cardiac disorders and prevention. The key strategic objective of this conference is to conduct communal interdisciplinary research in state of the methodologies and technologies within its areas of expertise. Renowned speakers all over the globe are welcomed to talk about their researches and developments, and also discuss about the latest updates and new techniques for the treatment and surgery involved in cardiology are hallmarks of this conference.
- Clinical Cardiology:
This aims to empower medical graduates who are already working or planning to work in cardiology units of hospitals with deeper understanding of cardiology topics and also general practitioners who wish to improve their knowledge and skills in managing patients with cardiovascular conditions. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology.
- Myocardial Infarction:
The most common symptom is chest pain or discomfort which may travel into the shoulder, arm, back, neck, or jaw. Often it occurs in the centre or left side of the chest and lasts for more than a few minutes. Other symptoms may include shortness of breath, nausea, feeling faint, a cold sweat, or feeling tired. An MI may cause heart failure, an irregular heartbeat, cardiogenic shock, or cardiac arrest.
- Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure:
Heart failure (HF) often referred to as chronic heart failure (CHF), occurs when the heart is unable to pump sufficient blood flow to maintain and to meet the body's needs. These cause heart failure by changing either the structure or the functioning of the heart. There are two main types of heart failure: heart failure due to left ventricular dysfunction and heart failure with normal ejection fraction. Common causes of heart failure include coronary artery disease including a previous myocardial infarction (heart attack), high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation, vascular heart disease, excess alcohol use, infection, and cardiomyopathy of an unknown cause. The severity of disease is usually graded by the degree of problems with exercise.
- Nuclear Cardiology:
Nuclear cardiology studies use non-invasive techniques to assess myocardial blood flow, evaluate the pumping function of the heart as well as predict the size and location of a heart attack. Among the techniques of nuclear cardiology, myocardial perfusion imaging (nuclear stress tests) for the detection and management of coronary artery disease, viability studies to assess for the extent of myocardial infarction, radionuclide cineangiograms (RNCA/MUGA studies) to evaluate heart function are widely used.
- Cardiac Regeneration:
Few tissues like skin and large organs such as liver regrow quite readily, whereas others have little or no capacity of regeneration. However in the present research, it suggests that particularly in the Lungs and heart, there is hope for a variety of organs and tissues will eventually develop and the capacity to regenerate.
- Cardiovascular Pharmacology:
Cardiovascular pharmacology deals with the drugs used for the treatment of cardiac, circulatory and vascular system. There are many types of cardiovascular drugs on the market that include cardiac glycosides, anticoagulants, antiarrhythmic agents, anti anginal agents and antihypertensive agents.
Bevyxxa (betrixaban): Approved June 2017
Byvalson (nebivolol and valsartan): Approved June 2016
Yosprala (aspirin and omeprazole): Approved September 2016
- Cardiac Oncology:
Cardiologists estimate patients for potential risk of developing heart conditions if patients take certain types of cancer drugs or other radiation treatment to the chest conditions. Cardiologists also help oncologists in patients during treatment by closely watching the heart conditions and recognizing heart trouble early in treatment.
- Pediatric and Geriatric Cardiology:
Branch of medicine concerning childhood heart problems is known as pediatric cardiology. Proper nursing and care for such children is essential in addition to the treatments. They work closely with a wide range of specialists as part of a multidisciplinary team to assess and treat patients.
The emerging field of geriatric cardiology reflects a shift in clinical practice as the typical cardiovascular (CV) patient is now much older than in the past with distinctive goals and complexities related to age. Cardiac disorders are main reason of morbidity and mortality in elders. Proper nursing and care is essential.
- Cardiac Surgery and Transplantation:
The improvement of heart surgery and cardiopulmonary sidestep procedures has lessened the death rates of these surgeries to generally low positions. Cardiac surgery, or cardiovascular surgery, is surgery performed on the heart or blood vessels by cardiac surgeons. For example, repairs of inborn heart deformities are at present assessed to have 4–6% death rates. It is often used to treat complications of ischemic heart diseases like coronary artery bypass grafting, to correct congenital heart disease; or to treat valvular heart disease from various causes, including endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, and atherosclerosis. There will be expanded discussions regarding the new advanced technologies in cardiac transplantation and surgery processes.
- Cardiac Nursing:
An advanced nurse practitioner practises autonomously within his/her expanded scope of clinical practice. The advanced nurse practitioner demonstrates highly developed assessment, diagnostic, analytical and clinical judgement skills and the components of this level of practice. This framework provides the foundation on which all future advanced practice roles are to be developed and existing roles are to be reviewed and subsequently managed. The framework is aimed at employers, service leads, education providers and senior or advanced practitioners themselves. Cardiac surgery essentials for critical care nursing is the newest resource available to nurses who care for cardiac surgery patients. The goal of the cardiology conference was organized to make it useful to all nurses from novices to experts and to make the content specific to the cardiac surgery population rather than including all cardiothoracic procedures.
- Case Reports on Cardiology:
Cardiology is a branch of medicine dealing with disorders of the heart. Heart is an important muscular organ in humans and other animals, pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. The drugs that are used to treat other disorders in body, show a great impact on heart causing various side effects. Hence case reports on cardiac disorders and diseases have a great value and help in advancing and development of treatment strategies. Cardiology conferences, cardiologists' meeting and cardiology events are very important for the common people to be aware of the most important part of human body.
Market Analysis Report on Cardiology
The global market for interventional cardiology technologies reached an estimated $12.2 billion in 2014. According to a new study by Smithers Apex – The Future of Coronary Artery Disease Medical Devices to 2021 – it will grow to $22.5 billion (€20.9 billion) by 2021, with a year-on-year increase of 9.1%. Demand for coronary artery disease medical devices will grow through 2021 as clinically viable and cost-effective solutions are developed.
The global interventional cardiology market is anticipated to grow at a steady rate and will post a CAGR of more than 7% during the forecast period. The growing demand for minimally invasive (MI) procedures will drive the growth prospects for the global interventional cardiology market in the forthcoming years. Some of the major factors responsible for the growing preference for MI include faster recovery, less pain, fewer post-surgery infections, reduced hospital stays, minimized incision marks, controlled bleeding, and minimal complications and high accuracy. Also, MI artery stenting enhances the surgical precision by providing a 3D view of the patient and allowing the manipulation of small surgical tools for the placement of stents in the individual's body. As a result, 3D-MRI techniques for improved imaging have increased the popularity of MRI procedures, which will eventually increase the demand for cardiac surgeries.
Smithers Apex’s exclusive primary research and market data identifies three key trends that are driving the attractive evolution in the interventional cardiology technologies market.
