We stand today with the Department of Anesthesiology at the American University of Beirut (AUB) and the Middle East Journal of Anesthesiology (MEJA), who announced with sense of great loss to the Faculty of AUB.

Professor Anis Baraka was one of the founders of new look anesthesia may be third generations since Dr. Post of AUB. He had an international reputation as editor of MEJA and his articles over the years documented the Arab contributions to science and anesthesia. His role was a road map designer of the path of reaching the fact pure and simple. He contributed to humanity beyond any limit and his works would continue to excite research and publication on anesthesia history in the Middle East.

Professor Anis Baraka was born in Al Minufiyah Egypt 930 and was educated in Egypt, then he joined the American University after good research in Liverpool. He chaired the Department of Anesthesiology at the American University Medical Center; Anesthesia Department and he was appointment of Middle East Journal of Anesthesia. He participated in the Pan Arab Scientific Committee since 1985 and chaired the Arab Board of Anesthesia with little number of that committees.

He was one of the contributors of the book on the history of anesthesia in Arab and Islamic medicine-ancient and modern.

In appreciation of his important contributions to Lebanon war casualties in the American Medical Center made him a reputed anesthesiologist and awarded many honors and esteem worldwide as presented by European anesthesiologist, Royal College of Anesthesiologists UK, and to Minster of Health in Lebanon, who decorate him with President Medal.

We send our sympathy on his loss to his wife Aziza, daughter Huda, and sons: Hisham, Khaled, and Tareq, immediate family and share the loss with Egypt, his native country, and Lebanon, his adopted country. Moreover, the Arab World, the “cradle of civilization as he used to describe it and all the anesthesiologists of the world” as appreciated by World Federation of Anesthesia Societies.
