Excellence in acute cardiac care

Radiometer's acute cardiac care seminar provided insight into the latest advances in cardiac biomarker testing

Spring 2014 saw healthcare professionals and key opinion leaders from around the world gather in the South of France for the thought-provoking seminar Excellence in acute cardiac care, approved by the Acute Cardiovascular Care Association of the European Society of Cardiology.

The event provided an opportunity to hear some of the most prominent names in the field of cardiac biomarker testing deliver an insight into the latest advances in this critical sector, and how they have been successful.

Radiometer is pleased to announce the publication of Excellence in acute cardiac care, a supplement to the European Heart Journal: Acute Cardiovascular Care.
