The Task Force for Perioperative Ultrasound Guided Procedures  has been set-up in order to elaborate ESAIC / EBA members common guideline on the use of ultrasound guidance during perioperative procedures including vascular access placement, peripheral nerve blockage and neuraxial anesthesia.

This taskforce will not deal with other ultrasound tasks as echocardiography and abdominal ultrasound. Whenever the use of ultrasound is required for the detection of complication related to the perioperative procedures, this will be included in the guideline.
