The Industry Partnership offers visibility and engagement opportunities for industry participants with ESAIC members, facilitating understanding of specific needs in anaesthesiology and in intensive care. This partnership provides resources for education and avenues for collaborative projects enhancing science, education, and patient safety. The Specialist Societies contribute to high-quality educational opportunities for European anaesthesiologists and intensivists, fostering discussion and sharing, while the National Societies, through NASC, maintain standards, promote events and courses, and facilitate connections. All partnerships collectively drive dialogue, learning, and growth in the anaesthesiology and intensive care sector.



Guidelines play a crucial role in delivering evidence-based recommendations to healthcare professionals. Within the fields of anaesthesia and intensive care, guidelines are instrumental in standardizing clinical practices and enhancing patient outcomes. For many years, the ESAIC has served as a pivotal platform for facilitating continuous advancements, improving care standards and harmonising clinical management practices across Europe.



With over 40 years of publication history, the EJA (European Journal of Anaesthesiology) has established itself as a highly respected and influential journal in its field. It covers a wide range of topics related to anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine, including perioperative medicine, pain management, critical care, resuscitation, and patient safety.

Newsletter July 2022: Jazzing It Up in New Orleans at the world’s leading annual anesthesiology meeting, ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022

New Orleans is famed for its haunted cemeteries, Creole cuisine, and hypnotic jazz music. But in October of 2022, in addition to beignets and Bourbon Street, New Orleans will be home to the world’s leading annual anesthesiology meeting, ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022.

A truly unique American city, New Orleans is a perfect fit for this global event as the American Society of Anesthesiology has big shoes to fill—our own. ASA’s 2021 annual meeting was a resounding success. According to a recent ASA survey, nearly nine in ten in-person attendees said the value of attending ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2021 was worth the cost of registration and that the content was relevant or extremely relevant.

We’re now focused on the fall, looking forward to spending time with old friends and making new friends, at this year’s in-person meeting. Our 2022 meeting will be even more vibrant and informative, with more than 600 educational sessions, hands-on workshops, networking events to drive real connection, and presentations from the foremost thought leaders in the field.

Expectations for ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022 are high. Attendees from around the world will arrive in The Big Easy expecting to boost their knowledge of current practices and standards, dig into the latest findings in science and technology, and engage with colleagues, new and old. Attendees will be inspired by the latest information on everything happening in the world of medicine and anaesthesia, from scientific research to innovations and trends. They will explore a range of diverse educational opportunities and enjoy learning from, and sharing with, each other, at lively networking events. They’ll soak up information at international panels hosted by the Korean Society of Anesthesiology, the European Society of Anaesthesiology, the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists, and the International Forum on Perioperative Safety and Quality. They’ll learn new skills and techniques to improve patient care, find innovative devices, and gather new information they can take back to their practices in countries across the globe.

And for those attending an ASA annual meeting for the first time, we’re rolling out the red carpet. You’ll feel welcome in New Orleans and you’ll be amazed by the magic of just being present—the people you’ll meet, the opportunities you’ll walk away with, and the new ideas that will percolate long after the meeting ends.

So if you agree that crawfish and the French Quarter go well with friends, education, and CME opportunities, start making plans now to join us for ANESTHESIOLOGY® 2022, October 21-25, in the magnificent city of New Orleans. Attendees will leave more excited about and connected to the speciality, more informed about the science of medicine, and more prepared for the future. The adventure in learning and networking is sure to be well worth your time and money so join us this fall to relax with friends, feed your mind, and jazz up your knowledge.
