Cardio Summit 2018 discusses cardiovascular diseases and their patients
BIAL event gathered about 150 health care professionals on the 27th October, in Lisbon
In Portugal and around the world, the cardiovascular diseases represent one of the main causes of death and hospitalization.
The prevalence of dyslipidemia (disease characterized by abnormal levels of blood lipids), as a major risk factor for ischemic heart disease and cerebrovascular disease, makes it extremely important to adopt effective prevention, diagnosis and treatment measures.
"More control, better protection" was the motto of the 2018 BIAL's Cardio Summit, which debated this epidemic and its control, as well as the communication with the patient, from the first symptoms to the occurrence of the cardiovascular event.
About 150 health professionals attended the meeting, led by experts in the field.
