THE NORTHERN WIND – A SUMMIT ON DIFFICULT AIRWAY
Since the very first Midyear Convention of the Philippine Society of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery, held in Baguio City in 1990, we have come to the North thrice more (Baguio City – 1998, 2007 and Subic – 2001). This time around, we welcome you further up in the plains of Ilocos Norte, home to the power generating windmills of Bangui and Burgos.
It is just fitting that our theme for this convention is The Northern Wind, more so with the increasing concern on air pollution and the search for cleaner alternative energy sources such as wind, solar and hydro energy. As we join in the interesting lectures, let us contemplate on the effects of climate change in the ENT airway.
