Dear ESPCOP members,

We would like to let you know of three upcoming meetings, and share with you the link to a series of lectures that are available on-line


Morbid Obesity was the theme of an all-day session at the 41st Congress of the Argentinian Society of Anaesthesia’s Annual Meeting, held in Buenos Aires on the 27th of August. The congress took place under Benjamin  Franklln’s  motto : “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.”
We invite you to see on one of the video-recorded session with lectures about obstructive sleep apnoea and anaesthesia techniques suitable for morbidly obese patients. We are grateful to prof. Adrian Alvarez, who made possible   the link uploaded on the ESPCOP website (coming soon).
