About NYSORA Asia

NYSORA announces the 4th Pan-Asian NYSORA symposium. The symposium will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 7th-9th May 2010.

Following the footsteps of success and popularity paved by the previous three symposiums, NYSORA Asia proudly presents this year’s symposium, which will focus on recent advances in Anesthesiology at large with accent on Regional Anesthesia and Pain Management. World-renowned experts in the field of Anesthesiology will share their knowledge and wealth of experience in the rapidly evolving areas of anesthesiology.

The symposium will not only highlight the trends and developments in Regional Anesthesia and Ultrasound Guided Regional Anesthesia, but will also present cutting-edge reviews in other areas of anesthesiology. The workshop sessions will provide a hands-on experience in nerve block techniques. The symposium will stimulate exchange of clinical experience among the experts and delegates and will provide an enriching experience to all.

The NYSORA symposium is a CME accredited course and certificates will be awarded to the delegates on completion of the workshop.
