Dear Esteemed members of ISA, Karunadu,
Greetings from the Secretariat of Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists, Karnataka!

In the last two years were difficult time for mankind, our anaesthesiologist colleagues contributed selflessly to mankind during COVID 19 Pandemic, many of our colleagues lost their life during this selfless service. ISA Karnataka has undertaken several initiatives for the benefit of members. Including various online academic activities through virtual mode. We solute all the covid warriors.

We successfully conducted several programmes - 15 webinars, PG excel at Hubli and State confence in Hybrid mode at Shivamogga. All these programmes were a huge success. ISA Karnataka started new sessions in state conference this year, UG session to create awareness among budding doctors about anaesthesia and perioperative medicine, Arivalike session -Informal discussion about various topics related to anaesthesia, earlier awards, Lifetime achievement and KLE oration were continued. We also continued with Young Speaker and Private Practitioner Sessions, and ISA Ballari Trainee Talent, BLDE Best Paper and ISA Tumkur Best Poster awards.

All 18 city branches are contributing to the success of ISA Karnataka and we want to support less active branches in their endeavours. We request all city branches to participate in ISA activities and contribute to the growth of our society. All office-bearers are open to new ideas and constructive criticism, and welcome your suggestions to make ISA Karnataka more vibrant than before. Together we will scale greater heights of members’ welfare, patient safety and professional achievements!
