Emergency settings in obese people require tailored multidisciplinary protocols and pathways to manage these complex patients. For this reason, we would like to foresee a proficient cooperation with the UK Society for Obesity and Bariatric Anaesthesia (SOBA) and other societies: obesity is a worldwide problem, and an international and multidisciplinary cooperation is desirable, if not needed. As demonstrated for bariatric surgery, a standardizing anesthesiologic and critical approach and an experienced multidisciplinary staff, trained and equipped to manage obese patients, are related to better outcomes. Similarly, as recently pointed out for airway management safety, we believe that the presence of an obese lead should be a desirable goal to reach in the next future, especially when thinking of emergency situations and the need for resuscitation of obese patients. A worldwide problem calls for worldwide cooperation.
