Patients with heart disease can present on any elective list, and also as emergencies. The aim of the ymposium is to explore areas of clinical importance for all practising anaesthetists. This Symposium brings together expert cardiologists, anaesthetists, and intensivists, bringing a truly multidisciplinary approach to complex problems making it easier for all of us to better understand the pathophysiology of heart disease and how to manage patients with often complex problems.

The programme will explore a wide range of topics with plenty of opportunities to question the experts, take stock and translate the most recent evidence into our clinical practice for the benefit of our patients.
