ISA Thrissur City Branch invites abstracts from post graduates

The year 2020 was the time when the world realized the importance of Anaesthesiologists and their contributions. But while Anaesthesiologists were under the spotlight it was also the time they were forced to turn a deaf ear to the developing aspects of the science. They have been so engrossed in saving lives that education and updating have taken a back seat. No need to look any further!
