The Signa Vitae Conference will serve all PICU and NICU doctors, pediatricians, neonatologists and anesthesiologists, to deepen their knowledge in pediatric and neonatal intensive care medicine and anesthesiology. It is intended to be the the link between anesthesiologists who cover both adult and pediatric services, and doctors devoted exclusively to pediatric and neonatal services. The esteemed lecturers would give insights into selected practical aspects of intensive care medicine and anesthesiology.
