The Irish Society of Obstetric Anaesthesia

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.
