Neuroanaesthesia

Objective

The Neuroanaesthesia Special Interest Group (SIG) exists to foster interest in matters relating to the perioperative care and anaesthesia of patients with intracranial and spinal pathology. This includes the application of basic and translational science relevant to clinical anaesthesia.

Most of this activity revolves around the Neuro SIG sessions at the ANZCA annual scientific meetings and Australian Society of Anaesthetists/New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists meetings. There is a three-day biennial Neuro SIG meeting that alternates between venues in Australia and New Zealand.

 

The SIG has elected representatives from each Australian state and one each from New Zealand and Hong Kong. They are available as a conduit for discussion of topics relevant to neuroanaesthesia for the ANZCA executive and any ANZCA Fellow or trainee.

 

Activities

The Neuroanaesthesia SIG will hold a session at the ANZCA ASM ASA NSC on Wednesday May 1, 2019.
