International obServational sTudy on AiRway manaGement in operAting room and non- operaTing room anesthEsia (STARGATE Study).

This is an international prospective cohort study aiming at tracing the current practice of airway management during anesthesia worldwide. A large international expert panel and Network is already in place and, to date, more than 2500 patients have been already enrolled.

This study will represent an important database and landmark achievement in understanding how evidence is implemented in daily practice and current safety standards of airway management worldwide. 

It would be great to have members of your Society in our team and we would also consider the inclusion of a National Coordinator if a significant number of centers from your country would join us. 

If feasible, we would also apply for the study endorsement of your Society.

You can find more information in the study website: www.stargatestudy.com

Clinical guideline on reversal of direct oral anticoagulants in patients with life threatening bleeding

Dear members of NASC,

Members of all National Anaesthesia Societies are invited to comment on the new draft guidelines “Clinical guideline on reversal of direct oral anticoagulants in patients with life threatening bleeding” and we would appreciate your input. 

These guidelines are produced as a service to ESAIC members and are offered to national anaesthesia societies for local adaptation as desired.

You can access the draft guideline directly on this link.

This document will be available until 14 September 2023.  You are invited to comment on the draft guideline through the online comment form.

We would be especially interested to read your thoughts on the following points:

·       Practicality: How well do the guidelines address everyday situations and problems in this area?

·       Readability: Are the guidelines easy to read? Do they make sense? 

·       Presentation: Is the layout clear? 

·       Acceptability and generalizability: Do they fit into practice in your own country?  Would the guidelines as written cause problems, or antagonise anyone?

Finally, please declare any conflicts of interests (e.g. relevant industry connections or funding) when you submit your comments as these will be shared with the authors.

The guideline will be available for comment for 4 weeks from the date of this email.

All comments will be received by Dr. Oliver Grottke, Chairperson of the Task Force for this guidelines.

Many thanks for your help.

If you would like to participate in this study, please send us an email with your contact details as soon as possible before March 10th. We can then include your center in the submission. Please refer to the leaflet available here for further information.

Please send your mail to: françoise.degroote@huderf.be, who will act as National Coordinator.

Do not send an email to the Swiss center as they will not handle the submission in Belgium.

Best regards,
