We have taken over the management of the Anesthesiology and Reanimation Specialists Society (ARUD/ARSS) for the period of 2018-2020. Balkan Anesthesia Days started to be held under Prof Meral Kanbak’s valuable efforts during her ARUD/ARSS presidency and it have been held successfully in various Balkan states for the last 5 years. In these meetings, the exchange of information with our colleagues from Balkan countries and other countries as well as friendship relations have been established that contribute to the promotion of participating countries.
In 2019, ARUD/ARSS is planning to organize the sixth of Balkan Anesthesia Days on April 3-6 in İzmir Atatürk Culture Center. The subject of the meeting will be “Trauma and Anesthesia”.
Trauma is one of the most important problems in our country and in the world and will continue to be.
The organisaton city Izmir is located on the west coast of Anatolia. It is the third biggest city in Turkey and it is the main port of the Aegean Region. Also, it has been enriched by many cultures both recent and ancient. The city of İzmir was an important center of commerce, art, and culture of the ancient world.
