ANESTHESIOLOGY®2018 was held last October in San Francisco and featured 31 Scientific and Educational Exhibits. The exhibits focused on many educational and clinical areas such as airway management, pain management, nerve blocks and the use of ultrasound techniques. Exhibits provided enhanced educational methods through the use of computer-based learning, advanced communication technology, and videos and simulators. Administrative exhibits provided information on technology and anesthesia, anesthesia for trauma and pharmacology in anesthesia.
