The European Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesiologist
The aim of EACTA is to be a forum in Europe for international scientific discussions and exchange of ideas in the field of cardiothoracic anaesthesia and related topics and to promote education and development in this field.
The Association wants to encourage a high standard of scientific presentation; to award scholarships; to assist in funding scientific investigation; to enable educational visits to centres in other countries; and to publish selected abstracts of papers presented at EACTA meetings in a professional Journal.
EACTA also promotes international exchange with non-European countries, by organising or participating in some international meetings on cardiovascular and thoracic anaesthesia.
EACTA acts as an adviser in cardiac anaesthesia to the European Board of Cardiovascular Perfusion.
