Message From ISCCM General Secretary

Dear Respected Society Members,

Greetings from ISCCM General Secretary

So far it has been wonderful three months for me as General Secretary of the prestigious society. I am lucky to have extremely supportive President, excellent EC members, very cooperative and hardworking office staffs. We are very focused to our agenda for next nine months.

Research is on high priority of our checklist and we are committed to have our own original research papers and assimilate Indian ICUs data. Research committee under chairmanship of Dr. Subhash Todi is working hard to achieve this target. CHITRA our ambitious data acquisition software is ready and members are welcome to use this. We are exploring the possibility of applying for IT exemption under section 35 which will fetch more money for research.

ISCCM under leadership of President Dr Subhal Dixit, is going to come up with the three practical reference manuals on NIV, USG & ECLS (including RRT & ECMO), with practical recommendations, which will be ready as we meet in CRITICARE 2020 at Hyderabad. Those who will register for the workshop will get practical reference book of respective subject free. Under leadership of President Dr Subhal Dixit & President Elect, Dr Dhruva Chaudhary, Society is going to have its 1st text book in Critical care medicine, which will be ready by 2021 at Ahmedabad CRITICARE.

We are in process of acquiring one more office in the same premises and simultaneously looking for the options of getting free or concessional land under charitable society as our future plans.

As general secretary, I have been endowed with the most difficult task of my life to organize CRITICARE 2020 at Hyderabad, which is a place out of my comfort zone. But I am very sure to complete this task with utmost precision with support from my colleagues and society members. Our 1st agenda for the conference is to develop a comprehensive mobile application, which can ease out most of the teething problems. I can say, we are ready with this application and very soon you will get the link to install it. This app will be your one point solution for everything related to all the future ISCCM congress. Like for registration you have to put your membership number and all the details will be there. Our scientific program will be ready very soon.

Scientific committee is working very hard on it. We are going to have more than ten interactive, standardized workshops where you will get more practical insight and hands on training. 1st time scientific chairman Dr. Dhruva Choudhary is planning to have one hall only for postgraduates as PG corner. We also intend to have one hall during congress dedicated to theme base seminars on issues like communications, data analysis, MLC, consent, interpreting studies, and many other important issues which are missed very often.

As per theme of the CRITICARE 2020, we will try to be precise for each and every aspects of the conference. I am sincerely looking forward for the blessings and support of all the members to make the congress memorable for all the attendees.

Long live the ISCCM!!
