Dear colleagues and guests,
Happily here we go again. It is with great honor and pleasure that we welcome you
to the 28th anesthesia annual congress & the 21st French Lebanese symposium on
anesthesia reanimation & pain management.
In continuity with the previous theme “anesthesia an art beyond sleeping” this
year we chose complementary subjects of anesthesia and added other issues of
general interest such as management related to medicine and statistics. Our aim
is to stimulate our junior colleagues to increase their efforts in reading, research and publishing papers
in national and international journals. As much as we acknowledge the attendance of our colleagues
from the Arab countries, the participation of our distinguished lecturers from Europe and the USA and
our generous sponsors, as much as we recognize the efforts of my predecessors in rendering LSA a
national and internationally renowned and notable society.
Speaking of “predecessors” we should not forget the endeavours of those who treated patients
with limited recourses long before the birth of modern medicine. They gave us the wonders
of complementary medicine such as acupuncture, herbal therapy, meditation and bio feedback
Techniques. Hence the workshop on acupuncture that I advise you to attend.
Again do not miss our very rich social program, sightseeing tours of the heavenly Lebanon, tasty
mezza and gala dinner.
Again, it is an honor and pleasure to have you all with us. In my name and on behalf of the organizing
and scientific committees I welcome you to Lebanon the land of cedars and alphabet.
Nadim M. El Jalbout, M.B., B.CH, D.A.,
President of LSA
