As medical professionals who manage multiple aspects of anesthesia administration and patient care, we are one of the most important points of contact for patients and other clinicians. Therefore, we need to be aware of our potential role in improving outcomes for patients and have access to information that will help us assist perioperative and postoperative patients, both inside and outside the operating room, who struggle with sedation issues, delirium, and various comorbidities. The Internet is packed with resources for multiple audiences, making even simple searches for information almost overwhelming. This Anesthesia Resources Center includes links and commentary on what we believe are some of the most useful sources for you and your patients.
