AbstractThis has been a very busy year for the South African Society of Anaesthesiologists (SASA) guidelines subcommittee. The first edition of the Acute Pain Guidelines was published in March. The fourth edition of the Adult Sedation Guidelines was revised this month and will soon be available electronically, on the SASA and SAJAA websites. The correspondence in this edition of our journal on issues pertaining to sedation relates to the third edition of the guidelines published earlier this year, which has now been revised. Finally, in November, the first edition of the Paediatric Sedation Guidelines will be launched at the PACSA congress in Johannesburg, and will be available in hard copy format for SASA members and PACSA attendees, and electronically on both the SASA and SAJAA websites.
