This year the Egyptian Society of Anaesthesiologists held the 30th International Annual Conference, as well as six other conferences around the country. Three symposiums were also held on the topics of Obstetric Anaesthesia, Safety, and Paediatrics, which were each held by their relevant committees  

All Conferences were accompanied by workshops in the following topics: Cardiopulmonary resuscitation,  Basic life support, Advanced life support, Ultrasound guided local blocks, Difficult airway (Adults & Pediatrics), Mechanical ventilation, and Trans-esophageal echo cardiography.        

The society sponsored African students to receive a fellowship in Assiut University. It also worked on tailoring guidelines in all specialties of anaesthesia pain and intensive care to suit the Egyptian community, as well as match WFSA guidelines, to offer the patients maximum safety thus decreasing mortality and morbidity.  

Safety and global surgery checklists and incident reporting are also being more increasingly spread through the Society, as they are important to the delivery of safe surgery and patient care. Several members have been elected as members of committees in WFSA and PAFSA, where they will represent Egypt in supporting this work. 

Several members of our society will also participate in international Conferences over the next year.

The 32nd International Annual Conference of Egyptsa the will be held on April 2016.
