The European Society for Intravenous anaesthesia
What is EuroSIVA?
The European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA) has emerged as the
pre-eminent scientific Society for Anaesthesiologists in Europe and there was a desire to develop an associated European Society for Intravenous Anaesthesia with the responsibility to co-ordinate, facilitate and to provide high quality presentations and cutting edge information related to TIVA. EuroSIVA is a foundation and registered in The Netherlands.
The foundation aims to develop and promote the highest quality of education for those involved in drugs administered intravenously and to develop programs for introducing these new techniques into the standard curriculum and examination system in the individual countries. Within Europe, many of these aims have been achieved and regular raining courses have now been established.
Aim of EuroSIVA
The aim of EuroSIVA is to bring all those with a major interest in the development, research and education of intravenou anaesthesia under one European organisation. We welcome you to take part in many activities, such as scientific and educational meetings, interactive discussions on our website and exchange of research in intravenous pharmacology. EuroSIVA communicates with similar organisations across the globe and facilitates close contacts. Welcome to the European Society of Intravenous Anaesthesia!
“To promote the highest standards of practice in intravenous anaesthetic pharmacology and drug delivery through education, research and professional development in its broadest sense throughout Europe.”
Meet the board
Since it was founded in 1997, EuroSIVA has organised a recurring annual scientific meeting to support the interest, knowledge and education of Intravenous Anaesthesia in Europe. We also co-organised meetings in Columbia 2012 and Chile 2019.
