SAQ challenge 2020 Print
Wednesday, 29 January 2020

Calling all ECVAA exam candidates: Invitation to join the SAQ challenge 2020!

This “challenge” consists of a “club” where exam candidates are given the chance to practice answering SAQs. This is based on a tried and tested system developed for the primary FRCA exam (which is the closest medical equivalent of our anaesthesia diploma exam) and has demonstrated repeated success, with the FRCA candidates achieving very high pass rates.

In order to participate, candidates will require a printer, a scanner and the motivation to practice SAQ exam questions.

The “SAQ challenge”, will commence on the 1st of March and finish on the 31st of July 2020. Applications to participate are now open and will close on the 12th of February. Participation will be anonymous, requiring you to create SAQs and model answers, to answer papers under exam conditions and to mark SAQ papers. The aim is NOT to improve your knowledge, but to improve your technique in answering SAQs.

Any third year resident or candidate planning to sit the exam in 2020/21 who is interested in participating should contact us at We will then send a booklet with more detailed information.

Best Wishes,
SAQ Team

WCVA Venice 2018 Print
Friday, 16 February 2018

Dear All

It is for me a great pleasure and honour to inform you that Congress Registration for the 13th World Congress of Veterinary Anesthesia is now officially open! You will all relevant information on the congress website:

The congress will be held in Venice, in a modern Conference Centre (Terminal 103), close to the railway station and on the edge of the historic city of Venice. The facility is easy to reach (further information on the website), and Mestre, on the other side of "Ponte della Libertà", connecting Venice to the mainland, offers accommodation options ranging from budget to luxury.

The Welcome Reception will be held at the meeting Venue on Tuesday 25th September 2018. A masked Gala Dinner and ball will be held the following evening in the stunning Ca' Vendramin Palace (the Casinò Palace, the oldest Casinò in the world).

Thursday afternoon and evening you will be able to join (limited places available) a bout tour visiting the beautiful Murano and Burano.

Last, but not least, although you should have by now enough reasons to attend a memorable WCVA meeting, I need to mention the scientific programme. Topics treated will be Ketamine, ventilation, haemodynamic monitoring, use of point of care ultrasound in anaesthesia and preoperative care, stabilisation for colics, management of the critically ill foal, and ethics of end of life and in palliative care, with considerations relevant for both humans and animals. Comparative anaesthesia and perioperative care is the core subject of this meeting, driven by the charisma and knowledge of internationally known speakers. Please check the programme.

On Saturday, with programme still to be defined (coming soon) there will be a "post congress day" on locoregional anaesthesia in veterinary medicine.

This event will be a great chance to meet old friends and colleagues in a beautiful setting while attending what I believe is a Congress with a fantastic scientific (and social!!) programme.

ECVAA exams 2016 Print
Monday, 14 December 2015

Dear all,

please find below a message from Dr. S. Axiak Flammer, editor of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.

Kind regards,
Stijn Schauvliege
Secretary ECVAA

Dear Residents and Supervisors:

If you plan on sending your resident paper to Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia for the 2016 credentials we would ask that you submit, at the latest, by the first week of January. This will allow enough time for the manuscript to undergo peer-review and be revised, as required, before the 1st of July ECVAA deadline. Manuscripts that have been fine-tuned for language, follow the outline of the appropriate reporting guideline and that adhere strictly to the authors' guidelines usually have a smoother ride through the peer-review process with fewer aggravating delays.

Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Best regards,

Dr. Shannon M. Axiak, DVM, DACVAA
Editor, Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia
