Dearest ISA Members of Karnataka,
Warm greetings to all the ISA members of Karnataka chapter from president KISA

I have been interested to be president of ISA, Karnataka at annual general body meeting held on 27th November 2019 during ISACON 2019 Bengaluru national conference at palace grounds, Bangalore.

ISA Karnataka is the second largest branch in India which is very vibrant and dynamic following firm foundation by our predecessors. I'll thrive hard to keep up the motto and activities and also improve further to make it number one state branch in India for which I need all your support and encouragement.

We have established programs like PGEXCEL and state conference held at various places in Karnataka every year. The PGEXCEL will be remodeled further according to the curriculum and examination pattern after getting inputs from all the HODs of various institutions in Karnataka. The state conference is scheduled in October 2020 at Shivamogga; we look forward for your active participation.

There are various awards instituted under KISA however, few new awards are added such as Young anaesthesiologists award, Trainee talent award and Private practitioners award which needs your active participation to make these awards popular.

The KISA got best state branch and highest membership drive this year also. We look forward for your active participation, support and encouragement to continue all the activities at KISA from various medical colleges, institutions, hospitals and city branches, thus making KISA as the best branch in India.

I look forward for the active participation from private practitioners in Karnataka, where a separate forum called PPF has been formed since last year.

I request all the medical colleges, institutions and hospitals and various city chapters in Karnataka to conduct various academic activities related to anaesthesia regularly under the banner of ISA Karnataka.

Long live ISA
Jai Karnataka

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

In the last one year, ISA Karnataka has undertaken several initiatives for the benefit of members. Our website www.isakarnataka.in is revamped and details are constantly updated and communicated to all members here as our membership is growing fastest among all other states.

We successfully conducted several programmes - starting new branch at Mandya (December 2017), PGEXCEL at AIMS, Mandya (February 2018), ISA sponsored CME at Madikeri (May 2018) and state conference at Davanagere (August 2018). All these programmes were a huge success. New Awards were initiated at state conference this year- Eminent Anaesthesia Teacher, Best City Branch, Freelance Anaesthesiologist, and 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 endeavors. 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!

Several ISA Karnataka members attended national conference last year and brought laurels to the state. Dr Balabhaskar will be installed as the President, ISA National at ISACON, Agra and it is a proud moment for all of us. This year, in recognition of the quality and amount of work done, ISA Karnataka and its city branches (Bengaluru, Hubli-Dharwad and Mangaluru) won 12 awards at the national level. Congratulations to all the winners. This will only motivate us to achieve more in the coming year!

I have a few requests to the members. Please make use of various opportunities of ISA Karnataka and National. Visit our websites frequently for latest updates. Check membership by logging in at www.isaweb.in and update if needed. Engage with public and create awareness about our specialty among them directly and through media, actively participate in city branch and state meetings including PGEXCEL and conference and update knowledge and skills, spread message about Compression Only Life Support, inform us of your accomplishments, etc. Please feel free to contact us at isakarnataka@gmail.com. On behalf of President and office-bearers of ISA Karnataka, I wish you professional success, good health and continued happiness!

Long Live ISA! Jai Karnataka! Jai Hind!
