We stand for all those who have lost their lives due to Aortic Dissection
In 2015 a petition for the implementation of a robust policy to improve the diagnosis of aortic dissection in the United Kingdom and Ireland was started. This petition was created in memory of Tim Fleming RIP, who died of an aortic dissection after being sent home from the emergency department with an incorrect diagnosis of indigestion.
Our focus is centred on saving lives by increasing the identification & early diagnosis of aortic dissection in Emergency Medicine
Help us to drive that change
