The WFSA and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) are working together to ensure safe anaesthesia for patients admitted to ICRC facilities. The partnership aims to create an anaesthesia forum for questions from the field, update ICRC's clinical protocols, course material and field sets, and establish mechanisms for the deployment of qualified anaesthesiologists. Amongst the first products worked on by the ICRC-WFSA Liaison Group is the ICRC's Anaesthesia Handbook which provides invaluable guidance for anaesthesia providers working in austere environments.

The management of perioperative bleeding involves multiple assessments and strategies to ensure appropriate patient care. Initially, it is important to identify those patients with an increased risk of perioperative bleeding. Next, strategies should be employed to correct preoperative anaemia and to stabilise macrocirculation and microcirculation to optimise the patient's tolerance to bleeding. Finally, targeted interventions should be used to reduce intraoperative and postoperative bleeding, and so prevent subsequent morbidity and mortality. The objective of these updated guidelines is to provide healthcare professionals with an overview of the most recent evidence to help ensure improved clinical management of patients.

Possible reasons for the inadequate postoperative pain management include limited financial resources, lack of time and personnel, but also reluctance to address this issue, organizational aspects of the health care facility, and lack of simple and clear guidelines for the treatment of postoperative pain. Providing such easy-to-follow recommendations is one of the objectives of this book. The availability of postoperative analgesia to anyone who needs it requires a high-quality postoperative pain management, as well as accepting and understanding the fact that good analgesia is not only necessary, but also a fundamental right of every patient suffering from pain and a basic duty of any health care facility that treats these patients.
