Its stated mission is "to aim for the highest standards of practice and safety in anaesthesia, perioperative medicine, intensive care, critical emergency medicine and pain treatment through education, research and professional development throughout Europe."[2] The Society also administers an academic journal, the European Journal of Anaesthesiology (EJA).[3] It was formed in 2005 to unify the roles of three previous organisations: the European Academy of Anaesthesiology (EAA) dating from 1978, the former European Society of Anaesthesiologists (ESA) established in 1992, and the Confederation of European National Societies of Anaesthesiology (CENSA).[1][4][5]
