Background on UIA
First published in 1922, Update in Anaesthesia is the official education journal of the WFSA. The journal aims to provide clear, concise and clinically-relevant overview articles for anaesthetists working with limited resources around the world.
The printed version of Update is sent free-of-charge to over 1500 English-speaking anaesthetists and is also translated into Russian, Mandarin, Spanish and French whenever possible. Update is available for download as a full edition or as individual articles (see the Virtual Library) and we hope that the availability of this resource will be broadened further with the development of this section of the WFSA website.
The WFSA would like to thank Baxter for their financial support of this publication.
WFSA are also dependent on the generosity of the WFSA Publications committee budget to fund our work and on the unpaid volunteers who give up their time to help produce the journal.
