Pain, Critical Care and Anesthesia

Section edited by Yasin S. Al Makadma and Ahmed Labib

Pain, Critical Care and Anesthesia section encompasses three major fields that are often tightly inter-related both historically and in everyday practice. A systematic Translational Medical approach may be our best route towards analysing common links and complete some of our limited understanding of common clinical pictures. Our section will also contribute in the understanding of mechanistic aspect of different anaesthetic agents and molecules and attempt to deepen the insight in the role of pharmacogenetics.

For that to happen, this section welcomes a very wide range of original research and review articles in related areas.
