Trauma Anesthesiology

Themed Issue in Anesthesia & Analgesia for 2023

Traditionally, anesthesiologists are highly involved in the care of injured patients in the operating room, the emergency department, and the intensive care unit. Around the world, many anesthesiologists also direct and participate in prehospital care and patient triage. Over the past decades anesthesiologists have contributed to scientific advances in the understanding of injury and the management of trauma patients, including studies of deliberate hypotension, hemostatic resuscitation, goal-directed management of traumatic brain injury, emergency airway management, and the pathophysiology of inflammation. We are thus pleased to announce a planned trauma-themed issue of Anesthesia & Analgesia. We invite you and your colleagues to submit your focused work on the pathophysiology of trauma and the clinical care of injured patients, including the following manuscript types:   

  • Original Clinical Research Report
  • Narrative Review Article
  • Systematic Review Article
  • Meta-Analysis
  • Special Article
  • The Open Mind
