About the Plenum

Dear colleagues and friends!

We invite you to Russian capital city of Moscow to take a part in Third Plenum of the Board of Russian Obstetrical Anesthesiologists and Intensivists Association. It has been more than five years since the foundation of the Association. During this time we have developed stable traditions. One of those traditions is holding Plenum of the Board in Moscow. The product of our joint work at this moment are more than 100 educational forums in Russia and abroad. This summer we have released the third, updated and revised edition of Clinical guidelines and protocols of treatment on anesthesia intensive care and resuscitation in obstetrics and gynecology. The upcoming Plenary session is dedicated to Sir James Simpson, who became a pioneer in use of anesthesia for childbirth, and also adorns the logo of our Association.

Plenums and Congresses held by the Association obtained a new international format, which determines the cooperation of two national associations and invited speakers from Europe, Asia, Middle East and America. This time the historical building of the hotel "Ukraina" was chosen as a platform. This location is a great opportunity to participate in the Plenum directly in the tourist center of Moscow.

This time the Association will give to participants of the Plenum an opportunity to get acquainted with the mosaic of approaches methods and techniques of anesthesia presented by the world practice of obstetrical anesthesiologists. Undoubtedly the primary task of the Plenum is to provide participants with up to date information, but the opportunity to review the global practice promises to be a valuable addition to what participants will see. An original approach, a fresh look at trivial tasks, innovative methods of anesthesia and information about advanced research - that is what we expect for the speakers from all over the world.

What is Expected?

In September 2019, you will find a real kaleidoscope of meetings with anesthesiologists and obstetricians from all over the world. Beside European colleagues there will be leading experts from many countries of the world who were invited to the Plenum. This time the geography is really impressive, representatives from South-East Asia, Middle East and Latin America are expected among the speakers. Russia will be represented by leaders of obstetric anesthesiology, highly qualified specialists who you already know by the educational forums which were held by the Association in Russian regions. All lectures will be provided with high quality simultaneous translation.

You will find the fourth edition of Clinical guidelines and Treatment protocols 2019 in the participant's bag.

We will be glad to see you at the event! Registration for the Plenum is already open!

September 21—23
