Cardiovascular Emergencies

Description

Cardiovascular emergencies are potentially lethal in patients admitted to the emergency departments (ED). Cardiovascular diseases affect the majority of adults past the age of 60 years. Acute coronary syndrome, pulmonary embolism, acute infective endocarditis, arrhythmia, cardiogenic shock, acute aortic dissection, and so forth are medical emergencies with high mortality rates. Especially for ischaemic heart diseases, patients represent a population exposed to a high risk of cardiac events when treated medically. Despite relevant progress in treatment, prognosis in this population remains poor. Therefore, more attention for rapid accurate diagnosis and immediate appropriate managements should be paid to cardiac emergencies in order to improve clinical outcomes, including reducing mortality and mobility.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the clinical spectrum of cardiac emergencies and sepsis. Other topics include the development of serum biochemistry markers and imaging studies to evaluate these conditions as well as the evaluation of outcomes.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Epidemiology, risk factors, and microbiology of cardiovascular emergencies
  • Effects and significance of performing current cardiopulmonary resuscitation in cardiac arrest pediatric patients in the emergency department
  • Novel methods of diagnosis and managements in patients with cardiovascular emergencies
  • Latest surgical or nonsurgical technologies of clinical treatments for cardiovascular emergencies
  • Clinical appearance of cardiovascular emergencies caused by acquired heart disease
  • Role of protein markers of inflammation and immune response in cardiovascular emergencies
  • Risk factors and predictors of poor prognosis in cardiovascular emergencies
  • The use of imaging examinations such as chest X-ray, ultrasonography, and computerized tomography in evaluating cardiovascular emergencies
