The goal of the AEAC is to bring together anaesthesia professionals around the world, the committee that coordinates the association consists mainly of university professors.
The AEAC takes responsibility for the dissemination of knowledge in cardiac anaesthesia aimed at professionals and students, via the bilingual "Cardiac Anesthesia Textbook" CAT 5 website that is online since October 2019, constituting one aspect of the CAT 5 Project.
Since January 2011, the french-speaking sites CAT 4 and CAT 5, constantly gained in traffic. In order to extend beyond the french-speaking world, time has come for a major shift, an english version.
The change of scale linked to an english publication of the website, requires the coordination of technical and financial resources; this is the role of the AEAC.
The AEAC is governed by the Swiss civil code for non-profit associations, as evidenced by its statutes.
