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 can produce scientifically robust recommendations for clinical practice.
