Clinic for Anesthesiology and Critical Care
The Clinic for Anesthesiology and Critical Care deals with all kind of anesthesia as well as intensive treatment of critically ill and injured patients (the most severe forms of trauma, sepsis, pancreatitis, bleeding and shocks of various etiologies).
Two departments make this Clinic: Department of Anesthesiology and Department of Critical Care. There are sections acting within the framework of each department as their organizational parts and cover certain subspecialties in the field of anesthesiology and intensive care. 
The operating rooms in Military Medical Academy perform all kinds of anesthesia for numerous surgical interventions. Particularly notable is its performance of anesthesia in the perioperative treatment of patients undergoing a transplant surgery - the kidney, liver, pancreas or bone marrow transplantation. The Clinic's experts are the first in this region to introduce intravenous analgo-sedation technique in all endoscopic procedures. A large number of advanced diagnostic procedures (LMS, WEP and REG in children, endoscopies and RCP) are performed under short-duration general anesthesia or analgosedation.
The year 1945 represents the beginning of modern anesthesia in military medical institutions when medical team from Great Britain, with anesthesiologist Dr. P. Shackelton, joined Second surgical Department of General Military Hospital in Belgrade. Same year, Doctor Shackelton performed the very first endotraheal anesthesia, which was also the first general endotraheal anesthesia in Yugoslavia.
His mission is continued in 1946 in the works of Dr. P. Sherwood and Dr. D. Russell. Beside their routine work, these experts educated our Serbian doctors: Dr. S. Kovačev, Dr. I. Jozić, Dr. B. Cvetković, Dr. V. Kraguljac and Dr. E. Ginzberg.
Colonel Dr. S. Kovačev was the first educated anesthesiologist in a Department of Anesthesia. Due to his large contribution in the development of anesthesiology, the Section for Anesthesiology of Serbian Medical Society issues a medal carrying his name.
In that time, the General Military Hospital in Belgrade established a Department of Anesthesia and Reanimation, working within a scope of the Clinic for Surgical Diseases. This Department in 1981 overgrows into Clinic for Anesthesiology and Critical Care which coincide with its removal to present MMA’s building.
