CATCH ME Sessions

CATCH ME was very visible at this year's ESC Congress held in Munich, Germany, with two dedicated CATCH ME sessions in which CATCH ME partners presented results coming out of the EU funded project.

One CATCH ME session focussed on "Diagnostic Methods", the other on "Pathophysiology and Mechanisms" of atrial fibrillation.

If you missed any of the presentations, you can find them online at the ESC Congress 365 website:

Atrial Fibrillation - Diagnostic Methods

Atrial Fibrillation - Pathophysiology and Mechanisms


One focus of this year's congress was digital health. This was a great opportunity to present the first experiences with the two CATCH ME apps released at the 2017 ESC congress, see here.

Winnie Chua introduced the  'ESC/CATCH ME apps for Atrial Fibrillation' in the 'Best of apps' session on the Digital Health Stage and
Larissa Fabritz gave ‘A glimpse of the future: CATCH ME’ in the 'Current state and future developments in multidisciplinary atrial fibrillation care’ session.

Both sessions attracted much attention from the audience.

The CATCH ME apps were developed by the CATCH ME consortium to improve treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), with one app directed at health care professionals, the other at patients with atrial fibrillation.

More information on the apps and links for download can be found here.
