Dear APA member
It is with great sadness that we must inform you of the passing of Krister Nilsson over the 2021 Easter weekend. Krister was a pioneer of paediatric anaesthesia in Scandinavia and among many things the founder and inaugural Chair of the Swedish APA.
Amongst others, he authored a fascinating Pediatric Anesthesia article The development of pediatric anesthesia and intensive care in Scandinavia
He made invaluable contributions to paediatric anaesthesia in Sweden and more widely in Europe via FEAPA and subsequently ESPA and ESA.
He was great friend and contributor to the work of the APA, and a regular attender at our Annual Scientific Meetings, being awarded Honorary Membership of our Association in 2011. His citation may be found at apagbi.org.uk/about-us/membership/honorary-members/associate-professor-krister-nilsson
An obituary will be posted on the website in due course.
Krister is pictured here, back row, extreme right as you look at it, among a group of APA and ESPA members on a lecture tour to China, organised by Krister in 2010
