Respected Senior members and colleagues,
I feel honoured to be chosen to lead this prestigious organisation for the tenure 2023-24 which has
been lead by the stalwarts like Dr. R.K. Pradhan. Each President and their team have immensely
contributed to the growth of this prestigious organisation and set a new benchmark. I congratulate
the previous team lead by Dr. Rashmi Shingade for the spectacular performance throughout their
tenure. I express heartfelt gratitude for giving me the opportunity to carry the legacy.
Today the role of anesthesiologists are not confined to the operation theatre only, but expanded
much beyond which is also the theme of our tenure – ‘ Anesthesia redefined: care beyond
boundaries’! In our tenure we are planning to have different academic and non- academic activities
for overall growth and better participation of members and their families.
We shall come out with
four issues of esense in the tenure 2023-24, the first issue shall be on the occasion of WORLD
ANESTHESIA DAY 2023 having two articles dedicated to the occasion. I thank the contributors and
request for more academic and non- academic contributions from the members and wish all the
best to the esense team. Please go through the interesting articles. Long Live ISA! Long Live ISA NCB!
From the editorial team
A very happy World Anesthesia Day!

For the anesthesiologists across the globe it is a festival of celebrating the pride and joy of being the one. It is a time when we revisit our glorious past and pay tribute to our forefathers for their courage, tenacity and enthusiasm to make the surgery pain free.
This issue of E-sense contains the contribution from our members taking us through the astonishing journey of Anesthesia. Visiting Ether Dome is a pilgrimage for any anesthesiologist. Our members are also sharing this surreal experience in this issue.
In ISA-NCB, we celebrate the World Anesthesia Day with much zeal and zest. It is the perfect occasion to release the first edition of E-sense for the current year. We urge the members to go through the articles and give us feedback.
14th August 2017 is forever etched on my mind as a very important day in my life. We were at Boston for “World Congress on Thyroid Cancers”. My husband Dr Madan Kapre was leading the Indian delegation for “India Session” which was introduced in the World Congress for the first time.

ETHER DOME, THE HOLY PILGRIMAGE
It was on 10th September 2018, that we reached Boston for the World Pain Congress. I was thrilled at the thought of presenting a paper at the World forum. The idea of experiencing the research and innovations at the International level was exhilarating. The Boston convention centre was enormous with a huge exhibit area.
