ESPA is improving the anaesthetic care of sick children using DefinitiveDx

Share Article

The European Society of Paediatric Anaesthesiology (ESPA) has launched an online advisory panel to find the definitive diagnoses and best management options for complex paediatric anaesthesia cases. The panel is using DefinitiveDx, which was developed by medDigital.

By using DefinitiveDx, our members have been able to easily discuss cases and get quick answers to their questions.

ESPA has formed an online expert panel that is using DefinitiveDx to improve the anaesthetic care of sick children around the world.

The panel consists of anaesthetists who want to offer their expertise to other doctors to help improve the anaesthetic care of sick children. All ESPA members have been invited to join the ESPA panel on DefinitiveDx where they are have already started sharing and discussing complex patient cases.

Any doctor can now share their complex paediatirc cases with the ESPA anaesthetic experts to enable them to give the best anaesthetic care possible. The ESPA panel page is accessible to all doctors. Once a doctor has joined DefinitiveDx, they can share a case with the panel and get opinions.

ESPA members are offering their expertise for free, with the hope that some of the doctors using the service will decide to join ESPA and the panel, to add their expertise to the growing community of paediatric anaesthetists using DefinitiveDx.

Felix Jackson, former anaesthetist and founder of DefinitiveDx said “We are really excited to be working with ESPA on this project. We have already seen how well this panel works with doctors of all specialties benefiting from the panel’s expertise. Our most recent success has been a UK GP getting advice from top international anaesthetists to help him choose the best care for two children potentially with a serious hereditary condition”.

Tom Hansen, Chair of the ESPA Scientific Committee said “I am looking forward to this project being presented at our congress in September. By using DefinitiveDx, our members have been able to easily discuss cases and get quick answers to their questions. It will be great to show our friends and colleagues how using DefinitiveDx is making a difference in our clinical practice”.

The panel is now open and is accepting paediatric anaesthetic cases from doctors wherever they are in the world.
