Message from the President of College of Anaesthesiologists & Intensivists of Sri Lanka
Dr. Kanishka Indraratne
The practice of Intensive care is part of the responsibilities of a trained and qualified anaesthesiologist. From the beginning of Intensive care, it has been Anaesthesiologists, who have taken up the care of the critically ill patient. This is because the practice of critical care is most of the time an extension of anaesthesia, particularly when it concerns the high risk surgical patient, cardiac surgical patient and neuro surgical patient.
