This year, the WFSA is joining with the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR), the European Resuscitation Council and their World Restart a Heart Day campaign, to raise awareness about the crucial role of anaesthesiologists in resuscitation.
The WHO-WFSA International Standards for a Safe Practice of Anesthesiahighly recommend that emergency resuscitation medication must be immediately available as well as other resuscitation equipment.
