The ESAIC is dedicated to supporting professionals in anaesthesiology and intensive care by serving as the hub for development and dissemination of valuable educational, scientific, research, and networking resources.



The ESAIC hosts the Euroanaesthesia and Focus Meeting congresses that serve as platforms for cutting-edge science and innovation in the field. These events bring together experts, foster networking, and facilitate knowledge exchange in anaesthesiology, intensive care, pain management, and perioperative medicine. Euroanaesthesia is one of the world’s largest and most influential scientific congresses for anaesthesia professionals. Held annually throughout Europe, our congress is a contemporary event geared towards education, knowledge exchange and innovation in anaesthesia, intensive care, pain and perioperative medicine, as well as a platform for immense international visibility for scientific research.


Professional Growth

The ESAIC's mission is to foster and provide exceptional training and educational opportunities. The ESAIC ensures the provision of robust and standardised examination and certification systems to support the professional development of anaesthesiologists and to ensure outstanding future doctors in the field of anaesthesiology and intensive care.



The ESAIC aims to advance patient outcomes and contribute to the progress of anaesthesiology and intensive care evidence-based practice through research. The ESAIC Clinical Trial Network (CTN), the Academic Contract Research Organisation (A-CRO), the Research Groups and Grants all contribute to the knowledge and clinical advances in the peri-operative setting.

Learn more about the ESAIC Clinical Trial Network (CTN) and the associated studies.


EU Projects

The ESAIC is actively involved as a consortium member in numerous EU funded projects. Together with healthcare leaders and practitioners, the ESAIC's involvement as an EU project partner is another way that it is improving patient outcomes and ensuring the best care for every patient.


Patient Safety

The ESAIC aims to promote the professional role of anaesthesiologists and intensive care physicians and enhance perioperative patient outcomes by focusing on quality of care and patient safety strategies. The Society is committed to implementing the Helsinki Declaration and leading patient safety projects.



To ESAIC is committed to implementing the Glasgow Declaration and drive initiatives towards greater environmental sustainability across anaesthesiology and intensive care in Europe.



The ESAIC works in collaboration with industry, national societies, and specialist societies to promote advancements in anaesthesia and intensive care. 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.



Becoming a member of ESAIC implies becoming a part of a vibrant community of nearly 8,000 professionals who exchange best practices and stay updated on the latest developments in anaesthesiology, intensive care and perioperative medicine. ESAIC membership equips you with the tools and resources necessary to enhance your daily professional routine, nurture your career growth, and play an active role in advancing anaesthesiology, intensive care and perioperative medicine.

Newsletter 2023

Newsletter November 2023: What exactly does the eLearning Committee offer to benefit you?

The primary mission of the eLearning committee is to enhance the educational experience of the ESAIC community by delivering top-notch, unbiased, and current medical education resources. At the heart of our responsibilities lies the ESAIC Academy, an online hub hosting a wealth of educational content, primarily webinars and E-modules. Our commitment to excellence is reflected in the accreditation of the Academy by the UEMS (Union Europénne des Médecins Spécialistes), underscoring our dedication to maintaining the highest standards in the development and delivery of continuing medical education. 

Our flagship offering within the ESAIC Academy is the series of Webinars, which we produce more than 10 annually. These Webinars span a wide spectrum of topics, emphasizing anaesthesia and intensive care medicine. These are the most formal activities, with 2-3 distinguished speakers and a host diving deep into a topic and engaging with the audience via polls and a Q&A session. Access to these Live Webinars is available to anyone with a free myESAIC profile. Webinars Replays and E-modules are accessible to ESAIC members as an exclusive benefit.  

Being an ESAIC member allows the learners to decide their own study pace and learn wherever they are, without space and time constraints.  

The ESAIC Academy has been recently enriched with another valuable resource titled “Guidelines O’Clock”. These concise yet highly informative resources facilitate the dissemination of critically important guidelines produced by ESAIC and/or in collaboration with other Societies. Topics covered include the management of severe peri-operative bleeding, the administration of neuromuscular blockade and preoperative fasting in paediatric patients—our on-demand activities, on the other hand, present practical information in the form of engaging infographics. A prime example of this is the “Brain monitoring” module, and personally, one of our favourites is the insightful “Normothermia” module. 

A recent addition to our repertoire is the “TryMe Quizzes. ” These quizzes offer a stimulating challenge, comprising a range of fundamental knowledge questions. They are particularly beneficial for individuals preparing for both Part I and II of the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (EDAIC) examination. 

Looking ahead to 2024, we are excited to announce several updates in the pipeline. These include an optimized search engine for easier content discovery, the introduction of more cohesive learning tracks, an expanded array of topics to cater to diverse interests, the release of new guidelines, and many more fun TryMe Quizzes to keep our community actively learning and participating.  

Our committee, under the capable leadership of Andrea Kollmann Camaiora as Chair and featuring esteemed members like Joana Berger-Estilita, Mariann Kotormán, Antonia Kustura, Diogo Sobreira and Armen Varosyan, is proud and enthusiastic about enriching the ESAIC community’s educational offerings. We aim to strengthen, harmonize, and seamlessly integrate education into clinical practice, ensuring our members have the latest knowledge and skills in anaesthesia and intensive care medicine.
