Focused Update: European Society of Anesthesiology Guidelines on the Management of Severe Perioperative Bleeding

European Society of Anesthesiology (ESA) guidelines on the management of severe perioperative bleeding (POB) were published recently.

In a Nataonline Focused Update, Prof. Kozek-Langenecker, Department of Anesthesia and Intensive Care, Evangelical Hospital Vienna, Vienna, Austria, and first author of the article published in the European Journal of Anaesthesiology, provides an overview of the recommendations.

The basis of clinical questions covered in the ESA guidelines is wide, she explains. POB management is not restricted to procoagulant strategies in overt POB but also includes patient optimization before, during and after bleeding. A web-app summarizing the key messages of the guidelines is available on the ESA website.
