The mission of the Belgian Society of Intensive Care Medicine is to organise and to promote the Quality of Care administered to patients admitted to intensive care units. The core business of intensive care medicine is the observation, the monitoring, the diagnostic process and treatment in patients with life threatening failure of one or more vital organ functions. The society is open for all health professionals involved in intensive care medicine.
From the early beginning of modern anesthesia in our country, the SARB was at your side organizing scientific meetings, supporting the education of residents, promoting research, as well as editing the “Acta Anaesthesiologica Belgica”. These challenges and our contribution to important consensus meetings inspired us to achieve our goals in patient care, education and research.
