We work together, striving for setting up the Asia Society of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine (ASECCM) and holding the First Asia Summit on Emergency and Critical Care Medicine to share experience and achievements, explore suitable treatment modes for Asian patients and write Asia clinical guidelines in emergency and critical care medicine. We've invited well-known experts from China, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India and other countries/regions to join the ASECCM.
