Each annual volume includes approximately 20 complete and edited peer-reviewed lectures on topics of current clinical interest selected from the ASA Refresher Courses presented at each year’s annual meeting and regional courses.

During cases, in on-call rooms, as classroom materials, and as preparative reading for Board examination, the annual ASA Refresher Courses volumes provide invaluable and current information about the practice of anesthesiology written by some of the field’s leading experts. As such, the Refresher Courses series provides a source of timely, enjoyable, informative and essential reviews to keep readers up to date on changes to the current theory and practice of anesthesiology.
