Dr Christian Bergek is a consultant in paediatric anaesthesia and intensive care at Queen Silvia's Paediatric Hospital in Gothenburg. During his specialty training at Linköping University Hospital he developed a great interest in ultrasound guided regional anaesthesia and in parallel also an interest in vascular access in all ages -- both necessitating a high precision in needle guidance. Since his move to Queen Silvia's Paediatric Hospital he has become a leading member of the paediatric vascular access team, and also a leading paediatric anaesthetist when it comes to ultrasound technology and POCUS in general. He is also an examiner for the European Diploma in Regional Anaesthesia & Acute Pain Management.
