Welcome to Anesthesia Abstracts – The CE journal by CRNAs for CRNAs! It is our goal to provide you with up-to-date clinical information you can use in your daily practice of anesthesia.

Anesthesia Abstracts is an electronic journal that summarizes and analyzes articles from a wide variety of health science publications in order to provide the busy anesthetist information relevant to clinical anesthesia and evidence based practice. Our contributing editors select CE content from a wide range of biomedical journals. Each abstract is followed by commentary, analysis, and recommendations by nationally known CRNAs. Each issue is available by email, viewable online, or available for download. Continuing Education quizzes are completed online. You immediately know that you passed. Your CE certificate is available immediately and archived on the Anesthesia Abstracts web site under “CE History.” Your certificate is available to view or print at anytime. We report your CE to the AANA automatically.

We now use a Token system to pay for Continuing Education

One Token is good for 1 CE credit. Buy Tokens or use the Tokens you already have. Read the abstracts and comments marked with the green CE symbol. Then, complete a quiz on the Anesthesia Abstracts website. When you pass a quiz, 1 Token is subtracted from your Token balance for each CE you earned. Your Tokens are not subtracted if you do not pass.

Whether you call it CME,CEU, or CE; AnesthesiaAbstracts.com and CRNAwebinars.com are the places for quality CRNA Continuing Education. All our CE is Class A (assessed CE) approved. It can also be used to meet your Class B (professional development) requirements. Our parent company, Lifelong Learning, LLC, is owned and operated by a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.

Your comments and suggestions are always appreciated.
