The MSA is a professional association set up to promote the art and science of anaesthesiology. We are a national body that co-ordinates the activities of anaesthesiologists practising in Malaysia. As a representative body for anaesthesiologists, we aim to promote professionalism, cooperation and friendship amongst anaesthesiologists, and are in liaison with similar bodies and specialties in other regions and in the international arena at large.

MANAGEMENT OF ANAESTHESIA AND INTENSIVE CARE SERVICES
IN PREPARATION OF WORSENING OF THE COVID 2019 PANDEMIC
As of 12 pm 15 March 2020, the Ministry of Health (MOH) confirmed additional 190 COVID-19 cases that were reported to the National Crisis Preparedness and Response Centre (CPRC) MOH. With these additional cases, cumulatively there are now 428 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Malaysia.1 Of these, nine (9) patients are receiving treatment in intensive care units requiring ventilation support.
In view of this escalating numbers and the probability of more new cases will be detected with possibility of healthcare resources to be diverted to focus on managing the pandemic (declared by the World Health Organisation on March 11 2020), the COLLEGE OF ANAESTHESIOLOGISTS together with the MALAYSIAN SOCIETY OF ANAESTHESIOLOGISTS and the MALAYSIAN SOCIETY OF INTENSIVE CARE (CoA/MSA/MSIC) have prepared these recommendations to aid anaesthesiologists in both public and private hospitals to consider implementing at their respective place of practice.
These recommendations are meant to be as broad as possible and may be adapted to location or hospital specific guidelines in conjunction with current available data and recommendations by the MOH. These recommendations are meant for the teams involved in providing anaesthesia/ICU services and they are not exhaustive. The CoA/MSA/MSIC will review these recommendations based on updated available data and information and may change as more evidence becomes available.
