Welcome To PACTA
Pakistan Association of Cardiothoracic Anesthesiologists was an idea perceived by some cardiac anesthesiologists few years back realizing the fact that the cardiac surgery and hence cardiac anesthesia is well established in Pakistan now. This was in continuation of the journey of anesthesiologists which started in 1971 when Pakistan Society of Anesthesiologists was formed.
Since then the domain of anesthesiologist continued to expand by formation of Society of Critical Care, Society of study of pain and then Pakistan Association of Cardiac Anesthesiologists.
The tremendous advancement in the field of cardiac surgery could not have been possible without the advancement in the field of cardiac anesthesia.
Pakistan Association of Cardiothoracic Anesthesia was formed in February, 2009 with the intension to promote excellence in clinical care, education and research in this growing sub specialty.
