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 Anesthesia in Europe. EuroSIVA is also closely connected to the International Foundation of Intravenous Anesthesia (IFIVA), an organisation that pursues similar goals on a world wide scale.

This in-side ESA session is open to all ESA delegates and traditionally is focused on scientific and technical advances in intravenous pharmacology, drug delivery and monitoring. Presentations on the effect of intravenous anaesthetics on long-term patient outcome will be followed by a critical appraisal allowing debate and controversy.
Third EuroSIVA postgraduate training course Porto
Wednesday June 22-23
It is with great pleasure to invite you to the third EuroSIVA postgraduate training course on intravenous pharmacology, affiliated to an academic institution.
This affordable yet high quality course will be again hosted and organized in Porto (Portugal) on the 22nd-23rd June 2016 and held in the Hospital Geral de Santo Antonio. It is open for all specialist doctors,trainees, sedation practioners and others with a special interest in intravenous anaesthesia pharmacology, monitoring and equipment.
Education on intravenous pharmacology and related topic forms the core mission of EuroSIVA. In this education section you will find scholarly presentations and publications that we have produced to publicly share with the anaesthetic community and interested parties. We also cover wider current aspects of anaesthesia topics like monitoring and the effects our practice has on outcome. More material will become available over time. Check this site regularly for updates!
This is the place you find some interesting presentations and videos from speakers at recent EuroSIVA meetings.
