The Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine (ISCCM) was formed in 1993 to
promote high quality critical care in India. India is the largest democracy
in the world. With the large population, comes the need for a large number
of hospitals, Intensive Care Units and therefore doctors trained in intensive
care. Unfortunately, no formal training in critical care was available to doctors
in the medical colleges or hospitals in India. The Indian Society of Critical
Care Medicine (ISCCM) was formed in October 1993 as a result of this need felt
by doctors for some platform whereby physicians, anaesthetists, surgeons etc.
interested in critical care medicine could share their views, anxieties, problems
and data. ISCCM promotes critical care in India through clinical monthly meetings,
seminars and national conferences throughout the country. It publishes its
journal "The Indian Journal of Critical Care Medicine" starting July
1997 which will be made available, full text, at
