The Forum is being held for the thirteenth time, this year, due to the epidemiological situation, the Forum events are held online. The Forum agenda has a scientific and practical focus in the field of emergency cardiology and covers all aspects of the organization and implementation of patient care.

It is difficult to overestimate the relevance and theme of the Forum, especially considering the important tasks set for the national medicine within the framework of the National Project “Healthcare”. First of all - to increase the life expectancy of citizens of our country. The program of the forum includes lectures, scientific and practical seminars, analyzes of clinical cases, within the framework of which the latest achievements in the field of urgent cardiology will be presented.

As part of the material and technical aspects of urgent cardiac care and the introduction of innovative technologies, NANOLEK will present Efferon columns for hemosorption. Extracorporeal blood detoxification has a positive effect on a number of fundamental factors that determine the severity of the course and prognosis in patients with severe angina pectoris and acute myocardial infarction. Methods of extracorporeal detoxification of blood can significantly reduce the severity of the syndrome of endogenous intoxication, remove toxins of average molecular weight, which has a beneficial effect on the clinical progression of the disease and objective indicators of the state of the cardiovascular system.
