Association of Paediatric Aneasthetists

of Great Britain and Ireland

47th Annual Scientific Meeting
London, UK

Welcome to APAGBI 2020, London

APA ASM will be hosted in London 2020 by a team drawn from the many hospitals that care for children in the capital. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the European Society of Paediatric Anaesthetists (ESPA), who will make significant contribution to the programme.

We will be focusing on several areas where our work is expanding into peri-operative medicine and the development of
enhanced recovery programmes as well as innovations like fetal surgery and EXIT procedures.

Topical issues such as high profile cases that have impacted clinicians directly and the increased demand on trauma services from knife crime will also be an important part of our programme. Environmental issues are also a focus, looking from an individual and a national perspective. Our workshops will cover TIVA, airway and practical simulations on dealing with the anxious child.

The Organising Committee is excited by the chance to offer a relevant and varied programme and look forward to welcoming you to London.
