The European Society for the Peri-operative care of the Obese Patient (ESPCOP) aims to promote excellence in managing all aspects of the obese surgical patient. We target European anaesthetists, intensivists and non-physicians.
ESPCOP is a sub-society of the ESAIC and we have been using gratefully the platform offered by ESAIC to organize sessions, workshops and pre-congress courses with international speakers during the euro-anaesthesia meetings.
Our annual scientific meeting is another key aspect of the society.
During the COVID-pandemic, most of these activities had to be postponed or were replaced by virtual online meetings. We hope to resume our activities once the SARS-cov-2 virus is under control.
