Dr. Samrajini Ganguly JP Cardiac Anesthesiologist congratulated all the current and future anesthesiologists for contributing their time and life for such a great job, she laid importance on the job of anesthesiologists by saying that in the past, when surgeries used to happen the patients used to die often during surgery due to the unbearable pain or blood loss due to the absence of anaesthesia. Hence it was almost said that surgeries are like death sentences for the patients. Dr. Lenin Elisa Xess JP Anesthesiologist said that anaesthesia plays a pivotal role in the healthcare sector for ensuring patient’s safety and comfort during surgery. Imagining a world without anesthesiologists is quite impossible today when it comes to surgery. During surgery, the anaesthetist creates a conducive environment for the surgeon to work on and keep the patient safe and to work on the procedure successfully.
