Let’s save the hearts of Ukraine together: Farmak organized practical training for doctors on the basics of echocardiography

September 29 is World Heart Day. In Ukraine, cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death among the population. According to this indicator, our country remains one of the world leaders, according to the study of the Global Burden of Disease. In addition, war is a time when a person is constantly in emotional tension and stress, which significantly accelerates the development of cardiovascular diseases. This link was found by researchers at Imperial College London and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

To reduce the risk of developing heart disease, you should not only follow the advice on a healthy lifestyle but also be attentive to your well-being and regularly undergo preventive examinations.

Echocardiography is a method of ultrasound examination (ultrasound) of the heart and blood vessels, which is one of the most informative. To better master the skills of such diagnostics, Farmak together with Medicover Ukraine organized a two-day training for doctors. The training was divided into practical and theoretical parts, and also had separate blocks for cardiac ultrasound and vascular ultrasound for various nosologies. During the training, all participants also learned how to manage the ultrasound machine in order to test new knowledge in real life.
