Guidelines Promotion

ESAIC Guidelines Committee is looking for new topics/guidelines to develop.

Two published guidelines need to be updated :

  • Perioperative fasting in adults and children : guidelines from the European Society of Anaesthesiology, published in August 2011
  • Preoperative evaluation of the adult patient undergoing non-cardiac surgery, guidelines from the European Society of Anaesthesiology, published in June 2018

If you are interested in launching new or updated guidelines, please complete the application form and send it to guidelines@esaic.org

For more information, do not hesitate to contact us : guidelines@esaic.org


About the Guidelines

The Guidelines Committee has established several task forces to elaborate guidelines on the related subject. The guideline topics were approved by the Guidelines Committee and the ESAIC Board after a consultation process within the subcommittees of the ESAIC Scientific Committee.

The task forces are made up of anaesthesiologists nominated by the subcommittee chairs to include expertise from the necessary scientific fields. These individuals are complemented by others with particular interest and enthusiasm both as task force members and part of a wider advisory group.

After literature searches and appraisal of papers, the task force experts will be able to produce scientifically robust recommendations for clinical practice.

Benefits of ESAIC Guidelines Committee activities

  • To make available a European guideline to be used by individual ESAIC members and adopted, with any desired modifications, by national societies of anaesthesiology for their own national use, if they so wish.
  • Harmonisation of clinical management of anaesthesiology, perioperative medicine and related clinical areas throughout Europe.
  • Improvement of standards of care throughout Europe.
