Dear colleagues and friends,

We invite you with great pleasure to an aniversary edition of The International Course of Protocols and Guidelines in Anesthesia, Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine (EAST Anesthesia) which will take place between September 27th – 29th in Chisinau, Moldova. The course will be organized in conjunction with The 5th National Congress of  Anesthesia and Reanimatology Society in Republic of Moldova (SARRM), as well as with the 28th Congress Edition of the European Society for Computing and Technology in Anesthesia and Intensive Care (ESCTAIC). 

The decision to organize this event in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova, when for years we were accustomed to meet in autumn  in Timisoara, is based on many arguments.. The year 2018 is a special year for Romanians. Since 2014, the Romanian Society for Anesthesia and Intensive Care has joined the Society of Anesthesiology and Reanimatology of the Republic of Moldova, organizing a joint scientific event as a logical continuation of this twinning.

For many of our colleagues, it would be the first visit to the Republic of Moldova, and the capital Chisinau - "The City of White Stone" - will open our arms to discover its beauties and surroundings.

The organization of this international scientific event in the Republic of Moldova is also supported by the European Society of Anesthesiology (ESA), which will provide both the scientific endorsement of the event and the organization of several ESA's special scientific sessions in this joint event.

In view of all these considerations, the meeting in Chisinau becomes a special event both in the context of the collaboration between SRATI - SARRM and in the perspective of development of our specialty at regional level.

The event will be credited with EMC points by the Romanian College of Physicians (CMR) and by the Order of General Medical Assistants, Midwives and Nurses of Romania (OAMGMAMR).

We are confident that together we will succeed in making this event an outstanding memorable one, in this year of the Great Union!                                      

With special consideration,  

Course President,                                                                Course Director,

Prof. Dorel SĂNDESC                                                     Assoc. Prof. Ovidiu BEDREAG
