Summaries of Emerging Evidence (SEE)
Challenge your thinking — try a sample question
A resident working with you in the preoperative evaluation clinic is asking whether to hold angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers for noncardiac surgery in patients with a history of hypertension on the morning of surgery. According to a recent study, which of the following outcomes is MOST likely in hypertensive patients who continued these medications compared with those who held them preoperatively?
(A) Severe intraoperative hypotension requiring intravenous pressor infusion
(B) Intraoperative hypotension requiring more intravenous pressor boluses
(C) Similar risk of intraoperative hypotension

What you can expect from SEE
Summaries of Emerging Evidence (SEE) is a self-study continuing education program that highlights important findings from more than 30 scientific medical journals, keeping readers informed about emerging knowledge in the scientific literature and how it can impact and improve the current practice of anesthesiology. The broad range of topics include anesthesia techniques, cardiac anesthesia, critical care, pain medicine, pediatric anesthesia, perioperative medicine, pharmacology, and many more. Here's how SEE transforms the way you learn:
- Save time researching: Don't have time to read numerous journals? Don't worry, SEE does the work for you! The content is aggregated from more than 30 international medical journals to streamline your learning process.
- Earn credit: Up to 30 CME per issue - up to 60 credits per annual subscription.
- Save with ASA Membership: ASA Members pay as little as $6.49 per credit when completing the program.
- Submit CME automatically: Provide ASA with your American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) number and once you complete the coursework, ASA will report your credits to the ABA.
- Learn anytime, anywhere: Electronic versions of SEE are available on the ASA® My Learning app. Learn on the go!
- Help fulfill ABA MOCA 2.0® Part 2 requirements: Consult the ABA website for a full list of MOCA requirements.
What your peers are saying
“An easy and cost-effective way to evaluate one's knowledge base, be exposed to some of the latest trends and recommendations in anesthesia care, and earn CME credits.”
“I never cease to be amazed at the diversity of questions and reminders of how much reading we need to do to maintain a scientific basis for the care of our patients as well as the understanding of the literature.”
“I do this every year to stay current with information I may not have seen over the year, especially outside of my realm of practice. I think it would benefit all anesthesiologists.”
“I thought the SEE program was a CME source with little relevance to my private practice. I imagined questions asking about the study of rat muscle after halothane exposure. I could not have been more incorrect! The questions and discussions are incredibly useful and directly applicable to my daily practice of anesthesia. I believe it is THE source for the latest relevant information in private practice anesthesia for patient care. SEE is both highly approachable and ultimately useful, I could not recommend it more.”
