ASA’s journal, Anesthesiology, offers a CME program linked to its articles. The Anesthesiology CME Editors choose an article from each month’s journal and write thought-provoking questions (three each month) associated with that article. The article, learning objectives, and an explanation of the program appear each month in the printed journal. By subscribing to the program and answering questions online, the user can receive up to 1 CME credit per issue.
Schedule of release of monthly articles:

The American Society of Anesthesiologists remains strongly committed to providing the best available evidence-based clinical information to participants of this educational activity and requires an open disclosure of any potential conflict of interest identified by our faculty members. It is not the intent of the American Society of Anesthesiologists to eliminate all situations of potential conflict of interest, but rather to enable those who are working with the American Society of Anesthesiologists to recognize situations that may be subject to question by others. All disclosed conflicts of interest are reviewed by the educational activity course director/chair to ensure that such situations are properly evaluated and, if necessary, resolved. The American Society of Anesthesiologists educational standards pertaining to conflict of interest are intended to maintain the professional autonomy of the clinical experts inherent in promoting a balanced presentation of science. Through our review process, all American Society of Anesthesiologists education activities are ensured of independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information. Disclosure of any or no relationships will be made available for all educational activities.
This journal article has been selected for and planned as a journal CME activity, which is designated for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. The authors disclosed relationships in keeping with Anesthesiology’s requirements for all journal submissions. All relationships journal authors disclosed to Anesthesiology are disclosed to learners, even those relationships that are not relevant financial relationships, per the ACCME’s requirements for CME activities.
