International Information

  • The COVID-19 pandemic is growing around the world. In order to allow paediatric anaesthetists around the globe to get better information, SPA, SPANZA, APA, ESPA and Pediatric Anesthesia are working together to get streamlined information readily available for everyone.Since information is changing very fast, we have decided to use weblinks rather than papers which are out of date in a matter of days.This is hosted on the SPA website here which will be the focus of any updates:
  • Further useful information can be found on Lit COVID, a curated literature hub for tracking up-to date scientific information about COVID 19.
