The European Industrial Gases Association (EIGA) this year dedicates its winter seminar to medical gases, providing an overview of regulations and how they impact the production and supply of gases.

The seminar, which starts tomorrow, will also look at what the future holds for patient safety and medical gases in the healthcare industry.

Among the speakers is SIAD Group’s Scientific Director Giorgio Bissolotti, who will be the moderator of the Future of Medical Gases session.

Speaking about the upcoming seminar, SIAD said, “EIGA has always focussed on the quality and efficacy of medical gas products and services to enhance patient safety, as well as the development of good practices and standards to protect our workers and users in the supply and handling of medical gases and homecare services.”

“EIGA also provides regulatory agencies and healthcare providers with advice on the safe manufacture, supply, handling and administration of medical gases. In recent years regulations and standards have developed into a complex landscape for EIGA members to navigate.”

The seminar Medical Gases – a deep breath, which will take place in Brussels, Belgium from Wednesday 30th January to Thursday 31st January (2019), is intended to continue the sharing of good practices and initiatives.
