  • Choose the right block for each patient, special procedure and pre-existing eye pathology
  • Take home an idea of how learning, teaching and implementing safe blocks at their own institution could be achieved
  • Discuss safe and practical ways of combining sedation and general anaesthesia with regional ophthalmic anaesthesia

ESRA is strongly committed to pursue its aims in stimulating research, promoting education, and training anaesthetists in Regional Anaesthesia, Pain Therapy, PoCUS and Peri-operative care, in Europe and abroad. Due to travelling restrictions and obligation to follow social distancing, we decided to develop and implement ESRA webinars.

ESRA webinars is a new feature of ESRA to overcome these restrictions and deliver optimal and updated information on those specific topics.
