Dr. Subhal Dixit
President, ISCCM

Hello everyone! I’m Dr Subhal Dixit your society Indian Society of Critical Care Medicine President for the year 2019-2020. I consider it my privilege and honor to take charge today as the president of this prestigious society during the silver jubilee of ISCCM!

My journey in ISCCM began in September 1998 when I registered as the first candidate for critical care training in ISCCM under the guidance of Dr Shirish Prayag. It was a novel course - as there was no other formal course in critical care in India. After my years in this field today I’m happy and take pride to say this, in fact I am the first IDCCM candidate to become president of ISCCM!

ISCCM is growing with amazing speed with a solid foundation of medical study and training. The ISCCM tree has grown from 37 branches in 2009 to 82 branches in 2019. During my tenure I’ll will make all efforts to maintain the growth and scope of this society.

A society of the nature can grow only if it is based on academics, original research, books, guidelines,coursesand by strengthening the bond with neighboring Asian association and the west!

It is a magical coincidence that this year`s annual conference is back in Mumbai exactly where its seed were sown in 1993.

The conference needs more solid constructive consolidations which I plan to work on and ensure to find new sparking dynamic faculties to be involved in it!

I’m happy and open to suggestions from you all and seek support from each member to make ISCCM as the most powerful critical care society!

Best wishes to you all!

Dear Respected Society Members,

Greetings from ISCCM General Secretary!!

So far it has been wonderful three months for me as General Secretaryof the prestigious society. I am lucky to have extremely supportive President, excellent EC members, verycooperative and hardworking office staffs. We are very focused to our agenda for next nine months.

Research is on high priority of our checklist and we are committed to have our own original research papers and assimilate Indian ICUsdata. Research committee under chairmanship of Dr. Subhash Todi is working hard to achievethis target. CHITRA our ambitious data acquisition software is ready and members are welcome to use this. We are exploring the possibility of applying for IT exemption under section 35 which will fetch more money for research.

ISCCM under leadership of President Dr. Subhal Dixit, is going to come up with the three practical reference manuals on NIV, USG & ECLS(including RRT & ECMO), with practical recommendations, which will be ready as we meet in Criticare 2020 at Hyderabad. Those who will register for theworkshop will get practical reference bookof respective subjectfree. Under leadership of President Dr SubhalDixit & President Elect, Dr. Dhruva Chaudhary, Society is going to have its 1st textbook in Critical care medicine, which will be ready by 2021 at Ahmedabad Criticare.

We are in process of acquiring one more office in the same premises and simultaneously looking for the options of getting free or concessional land under charitable society as our future plans.

As general secretary,I have been endowed with the most difficult task of my life to organize Criticare 2020 at Hyderabad, which is a place out of my comfort zone. But I am very sure to complete this task with utmost precision with support from my colleagues and society members. Our 1st agenda for the conference is to develop a comprehensive mobile application, which can ease out most of the teething problems. I can say, we are ready with this application and very soon you will get the link to install it. This app will be your one point solution for everything related to all the future ISCCM congress. Like for registration you have to put your membership number and all the details will be there. Our scientific program will be ready very soon. Scientific committee is working very hard on it. We are going to have more than ten interactive, standardizedworkshops where you will get more practical insight and hands on training. 1st time scientific chairman

Dr. Dhruva Choudhary is planning to have one hall only for postgraduates as PG corner. We also intendto have one hall during congress dedicated to theme base seminars on issues like communications, data analysis, MLC, consent , interpreting studies, and many other important issueswhich are missed very often . As per theme of the Criticare 2020, we will try to be precise for each and every aspectsofthe conference. I am sincerely looking forward for the blessings and support of all the members to make the congress memorable for all theattendees.

Long live the ISCCM !!
