Director of Clinical Area and head of the Unit for the Prevention of Sudden Death in Athletes at Xanit International Hospital

I have been attending patients in the Cardiology Department of Xanit International Hospital for some years now; I head the Clinical Area and am in charge of the Unit for Prevention of Sudden Death Sudden Death Unit - Instituto Cardiotecnológico in Athletes.

However, my area represents only one link in the chain of professionals who have created and are a part of Instituto Cardiotecnológico. Our sloganInstituto Cardiotecnológico: la fuerza de la unión, el pulso del equipo is "strength in unity, the heartbeat of a team".

In 2011, we decided to set up a web platform exclusively devoted to Xanit's Cardiology Department; as development coordinator I was responsable for making sure there wasaccurate y multilingual informationInformación en inglés, alemán y ruso - Instituto Cardiotecnológico about the services available to patients, about the Institute's Clinical Units (Arrhythmias, Cardiac Surgery, Clinical Cardiology, Hemodynamics) and access to detailed professional profiles of each member of the medical team. 

We have gradually added new sections: news, an informative blog written by ICTA members and,a mong others, a full section on hospital facilities Información en inglés, alemán y ruso - Instituto Cardiotecnológico with the aim of providing the fullest possible access to information, available to patients 24 hours a day.  

The Instituto Cardiotecnológico is currently a cornerstone of the medical service at Xanit International, which was awarded the MTIJ prizeInformación en inglés, alemán y ruso - Instituto Cardiotecnológico for Best Hospital in 2011.

Promoter and medical coordinator of the informative website about Marfan syndrome in Spanish

In January 2010, a patient referred from an outpatient visit with a possible diagnosis of Marfan's syndrome pointed out the difficulty of obtaining reliable online information in Spanish about this rare heritable disorder, which affects the connective tissues and may have major consequences on sight, the skeletal and cardiovascular systems.

This particular patient was eventually found not to have Marfan's. However, I have treated other patients who suffer from the syndrome and who also lacked access to reliable information on the subject. My decision to implement the Canal Marfan project stemmed from this need for an informational website about Marfan's, which I finally developed both for patiensÁrea para pacientes - Canal Marfan and healthcare professionalsCanal Marfan.

Canal MarfanCanal Marfan is currently a reference website for information on this syndrome in Spanish, with over 500 000 pages viewed per year and visitors from all over the Spanish speaking worldCanal Marfan.

It strictly complies with the Honcode international code of ethics and other certifications that guarantee the quality of the information it provides.

My main objective of providing information has been achieved, although there is always more to be done. I should also add that Canal Marfan would not have been possible without the cooperation of a numerous group of specialists in other medical fields, as this syndrome requires a multi-disciplinary approach.

I currently see patients in a Marfan-specific clinic held at the University Hospital of Malaga and I have given presentations at various other hospitals about how to start up units to cater for these patients.
