The Irish Society of Obstetric Anaesthesia was formed in 1997 to provide a focus for educational meetings in Ireland aimed at Obstetric Anaesthetists, Trainees and Obstetric and Midwifery practitioners.
The society hopes to encourage research and audit activities based in Irish uinits.
Many Irish Anaesthetists are also members of OAA (UK) and SOAP (USA).
An annual meeting is held occasionally in association with other Anaesthesia Societies or Organisations. ISOA has hosted international obstetric anaesthesia meetings in Ireland.
Annual Subscription includes registration for the ISOA annual meeting.
