Neuroanaesthesia SIG

The Neuroanaesthesia 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 Neuroanaesthesia SIG sessions at the ANZCA Annual Scientific Meeting and meetings of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists and the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists, as well as our three-day biennial Neuroanaesthesia SIG meeting that alternates between venues in Australia and New Zealand.

We have 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 FANZCA or trainee.

Future meetings

The Neuroanaesthesia SIG will hold a meeting on 20 October 2022 in Wellington, New Zealand. This will be a satellite meeting to the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists and the Australian Society of Anaesthetists Combined Scientific Congress (CSC).
