Scope of our work

 We are responsible for producing and regularly updating reviews of interventions in the areas of: anaesthesia, perioperative medicine, intensive care medicine, prehospital medicine, resuscitation and emergency medicine.

We avoid duplication of work by collaborating closely with other collaborative Review Groups, which have overlapping scopes. If a review potentially overlaps with another Cochrane Group, that Group is asked to contribute to the editorial process by providing a peer-reviewer.
