a project of the German Society of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine



The Project OrphanAnesthesia

The aim of the OrphanAnaesthesia project is the publication of guidelines for the anaesthetic management of patients suffering from rare diseases. OrphanAnaesthesia, thus, hopes to improve the safety of anaesthesia for such patients.
As there is only sparse information available on the management of rare diseases, and even less on the anaesthetic management, the OrphanAnaesthesia project merges the available information. The guidelines published by OrphanAnaesthesia present this information, merging evidence from the literature with experience from subject matter experts to best benefit all physicians involved in the care of patients with rare diseases. Each guideline is presented in a standard format and undergoes international peer-review by both an anaesthesiologist and disease specialist.
OrphanAnaesthesia is an international project. All guidelines are initially published in English, with translation of guidelines into other languages accomplished as is feasible.
