European Anaesthesia Amalgamates

07.03.2005


The Interim Board of Directors of the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) announces the completion of the amalgamation of the former European Society of Anaesthesiologists (ESA), the former European Academy of Anaesthesiology (EAA) and the former Confederation of European National Societies of Anaesthesiologists (CENSA) into the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA). For the first time, a single body exists to represent European anaesthesiologists, and to promote the highest clinical and scientific standards of anaesthesia in Europe.



An Interim Board of Directors, Interim Council and the General Assembly will govern the Society in 2005. Later in 2005, a new Board of Directors and new Council will be elected to take office in 2006, replacing the Interim bodies.

Active members of the Society from those European countries with at least 25 Active members elect one representative per country to the Council. Over 30 countries are represented on the Council. This body elects the Board of Directors. The General Assembly convenes at the time of the ESA Annual Meeting. The Society’s current membership is in excess of 5,000 individual members and as a result of the new Society Membership category, the ESA has the potential to soon represent more than 60,000 European anaesthesiologists.


Although predominantly a European Society, the ESA membership base includes Affiliate Members, without voting rights, from many countries around the world.

The Society has a permanent headquarters (HQ) in Brussels, which houses the Executive Director and seven members of staff. The HQ provides offices and meeting facilities for the Society in the heart of Brussels.

The aims of the Society are:

To promote exchange of information between anaesthesiologists in European countries (as defined by the World Health Organisation),

To disseminate information in regard to anaesthesiology,

To raise the standards of the speciality by fostering and encouraging education, research, scientific progress and exchange of information,

To promote and protect the interest of its members,

To promote improvements in safety and quality of care of patients undergoing anaesthesia by facilitating and harmonising activities of national and international societies of anaesthesiologists in European countries (as defined by the World Health Organisation).

The activities of the Society

The ESA organises Annual Meetings throughout Europe under the banner “Euroanaesthesia”. The meetings are attended by members and non-members (in excess of 5,000 participants) and represent more than 65 countries from around the world. The ESA Annual Meetings are accredited by the American Medical Association and the Union of European Medical Specialists (U.E.M.S.) for continuing medical education (CME) credits.

The Society’s Annual meeting and Newsletter serve to disseminate information in regard to anaesthesiology and promote exchange of information between European anaesthesiologists.

The European Journal of Anaesthesiology (EJA), currently the official journal of the ESA, and the Society’s research grants, fellowships and awards programmes serve to foster and encourage education, research and scientific progress, and thereby raise the educational and scientific standards of the specialty of anaesthesiology.

The ESA organises the examination for the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care that serves to raise the standards of the speciality.

The links of the Society to the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) and the European Board of Anaesthesiology (EBA) serve to promote and protect the interests of its members.

The Hospital visitation programme serves to promote improvements in safety and quality of care of patients undergoing anaesthesia.

Through its National Anaesthesia Society Committee (NASC) the ESA is linked to the World Federation of Societies of Anaesthesiologists (WFSA) and facilitates the activities and harmonisation of national and international societies of anaesthesiologists in European Countries.

Signed,

Hans-Joachim Priebe
President

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
