Ad-Hoc Anaesthesia Equipment Committee

 The Committee will also 

1. Identify suitable component parts for a basic WFSA “Safe Anaesthesia Kit” 
2. Anticipate technological developments in both anaesthesia and anaesthesia equipment and determine whether these developments will be beneficial to LMICs
3.Establish a process for the anaesthesia community to engage with equipment developers to ensure that anaesthesia equipment is developed according to actual need rather than perceived need.

As the WFSA has official liason with the WFSA, Dr Philippe Mavoungou, Chair of the WFSA Equipment Committee, attended the 3rd WHO Global Forum on Medical Devices. Dr Mavoungou gave a presentation on "Equipment For Safer Anaesthesia For Everybody Today" which you can view here.
