HirslandenAnesthesia Symposium

Hirslanden Lausanne is happy to welcome you to the next Hirslanden Anesthesia Symposium to be held on 8-9 June 2018, Beau-Rivage Palace, Lausanne

Content of the Symposium

In the last decades, anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine have progressively had to manage the eldery, polymorbid and polymedicated patient undergoing more complex surgical procedures. Patient-tailored anesthesiological skills, technical innovation and the application of new, more controllable drugs, have significantly reduced mortality and morbidity directly induced by anesthesia.

Our specialties and competences are increasingly targeted towards the optimal prevention and management of diverse perioperative risks. The 2018 edition of the Hirslanden Anesthesia Symposium focuses on this evolution. A broad panel of Swiss and foreign speakers will treat the topics of “Chronization of acute pain” on Friday 8th June and “Perioperative risks : an update” on Saturday 9th June 2018.

We would be very pleased to meet you in June on the shores of Lake Geneva in Lausanne for the Hirslanden Anesthesia Symposium 2018.
