IARS - International Anesthesia Research Society


Anesthesia & Analgesia

The IARS is the owner and publisher of Anesthesia & Analgesia, the leading clinical journal in the field.

Anesthesia & Analgesia exists for the benefit of current and future patients under the care of health care professionals engaged in the disciplines broadly related to anesthesiology: perioperative medicine, critical care, and pain management. The journal furthers the care of these patients by reporting the fundamental advances in the sciences of these clinical disciplines and by documenting the clinical, administrative, and educational advances that guide therapy. Each monthly issue features peer-reviewed articles reporting on the latest advances in drugs, perioperative care, preoperative preparation, patient monitoring, pain management, patient safety and many other timely topics.

A&A Case Reports

A&A Case Reports is a clinical companion journal to the International Anesthesia Research Society's flagship publication, Anesthesia & Analgesia. A&A Case Reports is designed to be the specialty's indispensable resource for peer-reviewed case reports that make an important teaching point or scientific observation in disciplines related to anesthesiology: perioperative medicine, critical care, and pain management.


OpenAnesthesia™, sponsored by the International Anesthesia Research Society, was founded by Dr. Ed Nemergut and Dr. Robert Thiele. It debuted in July 2009 with the broad goal of advancing graduate medical education in anesthesia. Since its inception as an experimental project, OpenAnesthesia™ has grown to be a comprehensive resource for anesthesiology residents and physicians worldwide.

OpenAnesthesia now offers both online and mobile education resources. We are dedicated to using cutting-edge technology and a modern approach to education to provide the best, most time-efficient continuous education that targets individual resident’s and physician’s strengths and weaknesses, and, of course, interests. Our goal, as from our inception, to offer an education system that is effective, engaging, and ultimately improves anesthesiology practice and patient care.
