  About ISCCM™ Top

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 this site.
