AIC Kongress Graz
Chairmen Prim. Dr. Kainz and Prof. Dr. Hasibeder

The Annual Conference (AIC) of the Austrian Society for Anaesthesiology, Resuscitation and Intensive Care Medicine – better known as ÖGARI  – took place in mid-November at the Congress Graz.






The event brought more than 1,000 participants from the following specialized areas together:

  • clinical anesthesiology
  • intensive care
  • emergency medicine
  • pain medicine
  • palliative care

Physicians and expert personnel from the above-mentioned disciplines use this conference every year to learn about the latest developments in these areas and to discuss current issues. Individual sessions focused on topics such as intensive care ventilation, news from pain medicine, perioperative medicine, ICU in pre-clinic, emergencies in palliative medicine, hot topics in intensive care medicine, medical law topics, and much more. Furthermore, there are also courses for advanced training, such as the half-day emergency refresher course on the last day.
