Heart Failure Symposium 2019

Welcome all! Heart Failure Service Improvement (HFSI), an initiative by Ministry of Health to enhance heart failure care in Singapore, is proud to host and organize Heart Failure

Symposium 2019.

The theme of this year’s symposium is ‘Toward Successful Community Heart Failure Care’ so as to emphasize the need to bring HF care to the community, where the patients and caregivers belong. With the tsunami of chronic disease such as diabetes and hypertension, and aging population, we are experiencing a rapid increase of heart failure patients who are now living longer and living better. Collaboration between tertiary institutions where heart failure units are based, as well as community care workers, is ever more important to manage patients’ and caregivers’ needs and expectation.

HF Symposium - Course Contents

  • An overview of Heart Failure (preserved and reduced ejection fraction)
  • Latest update in Heart Failure Guideline
  • Nutritional interventions
  • Heart failure rhythm and device management
  • Telemedicine and transition care in heart failure
  • Palliative end stage symptoms management

Highlight:

  • Lecture series, a Debate, Ask-the-Expert Session, sharing of existing collaborative programs in primary care, and personal journey by a patient

At the Heart of Health II – National University Heart Centre, Singapore

Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery (CABG) – Our Modern Armamentarium by Assistant Professor Kang Giap Swee, Senior Consultant, Department of Cardiac, Thoracic and Vascular Surgery

Coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) is a type of treatment options and its short, medium and long-term results are well documented. While some surgeons may assume that the future would be like the past, the golden age of a standard CABG is not a guarantee of long-term success. The future is linked to a process of innovation that will adapt surgery to the needs of the population, to new technologies and to pioneering developments.

This presentation contains an evaluation of new challenges and opportunities, including the implementation of safer and less invasive surgery, avoidance of cardiopulmonary perfusion to minimise a systemic inflammatory response and move towards total arterial revascularisation with an added benefit of a better long-term patency rate and survival. Realisation will depend upon the innovative attitude of surgeons, the support of the health system and industry revolution.

Blood Pressure (BP) Goals – What Do The Guidelines Say? by 
Dr Gavin Ng, Associate Consultant, Department of Cardiology

Hypertension is a very common problem in Singapore. About 1 in 4 Singapore residents aged from 30-69 have hypertension. This figure rises to 1 in 2 for people aged 60-69 years old. Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the developed world and hypertension remains one of the key risk factors.  The treatment for hypertension has been well established but recent practice guidelines have made BP targets more fluid. 

This presentation will consolidate the information from different guidelines to provide the latest update in treating hypertension, including how to personalise treatment for individual patients in the local context.

At the Heart of Health I – National University Heart Centre, Singapore

Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery (MICS) – A/Prof Theodoros Kofidis, Head and Senior Consultant, Department of Cardiac, Thoracic & Vascular Surgery

Less invasive heart procedures are now a valuable solution for many of our patients, with potential for less trauma, blood loss, infections, arrhythmias, hospital stay and a better cosmetic result. The National University Heart Centre, Singapore (NUHCS) offers a platform to enable heart valve and bypass operations, as well as combinations thereof to be carried out through small keyhole incisions from the side, without splitting the entire chest bone.  They also add value from a health-economical point of view, as patients recover faster, leave the hospital earlier, and return to their full activities sooner.

Updates on Management of Heart Failure – Dr Lin Weiqin, Consultant, Department of Cardiology

Heart failure is a growing epidemic in Singapore and places a huge strain on our healthcare system. It is also one of the fastest growing fields in cardiology, with new drugs and devices being developed at neck-breaking speed. It is thus important for all healthcare professionals to understand the latest advancements in heart failure. This will allow us to provide evidence-based, beneficial treatment to heart failure patients while at the same time, understand the socio-economic impacts of such treatment. We will discuss how the National University Heart Centre, Singapore (NUHCS) provides end-to-end care for our patients living with heart failure and how that is applicable in the community.

Go Red for Women Luncheon 2019

​Let's do our part to protect the precious hearts of all the beloved ladies in our lives!

Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women worldwide?

In 2017, 28.2% of women died from cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Singapore, which means that 1 out of 3 female deaths, is due to CVD.

It is time for us to unite and put our hearts into it, as we Go Red for Women! As we celebrate the success of women this International Women's Day, let's also urge them to take charge of their hearts.

Be sure to take your seat with other women (and men), as we work together to beat the #1 killer of women.
