German CPU Registry

In a joint effort with the German Cardiac Society (DGK) and the German Heart Foundation, Stiftung IHF operates the German CPU Registry. This registry collects data from patients admitted to so-called “chest pain units.” The objective is to further optimize the timing, diagnostic procedures, and therapy. Since 2009, a total of 30,000 patients have been captured nationwide.
