Anaesthesia, Pain & Intensive Care
‘Anaesthesia, Pain & Intensive Care’ (APICARE) first
appeared as ‘Anaesthesia News’ in 1997.
It contained few case reports and a review article and a
portion of it was dedicated to news about the anaesthesia
and the anesthesiologists related activities in the country.
The overwhelming response by the anesthesiologists from all
over the country prompted its name to be changed to
‘Anaesthesia, Pain & Intensive Care’ just after the first
two issues, with the aim of converting it into a scientific,
research journal representing the four sister specialties of
anesthesiology, pain management, intensive care and
resuscitation. Soon the research articles started to pour
in, which compelled us to adopt a comprehensive peer review
system. The journal has since thrived despite innumerable
constraints, and now boasts to be one of the leading
research oriented journals of the region. Our area of
circulation encompasses whole of South Asia and the Middle
East and the journal is indexed / abstracted by many of the
