I want to support ESPA because?
I work for one of the most beautiful hospitals specialised for children in Germany and have dedicated my life to Paediatric Anaesthesia exclusively. I strongly believe that there is a place for a specialised Paediatric Anaesthesiologist in Europe to support the unique needs of our very individual patients. It is extremely important to set up European guidelines for Paediatric Anaesthesia together. Additionally, I am strongly interested in cooperation with the European community of Paediatric Anaesthesiologists to achieve that goal. ESPA should not be a rival for the established well working societies but should be a compilation of paediatric anaesthesiological knowledge and a consultant for the ?big? European societies.
