The cardiology congress breaks attendance records in Palma and calls for "return to normality"


The Palma Congress Center hosted the SEC22 Congress of Cardiovascular Health in October, a scientific event organized by the Spanish Society of Cardiology (SEC) that has brought together almost 4,000 professionals in Palma for three days, a historical maximum registered in the 43 editions held at this congress.

Dr. Juan José Gómez Doblas, President of the SEC22 Congress, assured in his welcome speech that "nothing has been conditioned by the coronavirus", thus claiming "the extraordinary normality" with which the congress has been carried out.

The event has offered an extensive scientific program with different symposiums, workshops, nearly 200 training sessions and almost a thousand communications, which have served to share knowledge and the latest advances in treatment of heart disease, such as the case of the new Spanish polypill, a drug that combines three medications and reduces cardiovascular mortality in relapses due to heart attack by 33%.

Cross-cutting innovation in healthcare and the role of the citizen's digital health history has also been one of the topics of interest at the SEC22 Congress. As Dr. Gómez Doblas points out, "the possibility of integrating all the information and activity markers that our own mobile devices record today into the patient's clinical history can be key to improving the control of the population's health.

In addition, different measures of the SEC-FEC Verde project were launched, developed by the Spanish Society of Cardiology and the Spanish Heart Foundation with the general objective of reducing the morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular diseases related to pollution. "The Palma Congress Center has been a great facilitator to implement measures such as the elimination of single-use plastics or the integration of heart-healthy menus" explained Dr. Gómez Doblas.
