International Anesthesia Research Society

The International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS) is an international, professional medical society dedicated to improving clinical care, education and research in anesthesia, pain management, and perioperative medicine.


The IARS, owner and publisher of Anesthesia & Analgesia, is a nonprofit medical society founded in 1922 with the mission "to foster progress and research in all phases of anesthesia." The Society has a worldwide membership of 15,000 physicians and other anesthesia-related health professionals. The IARS is completely nonpolitical, focused only on the advancement and support of education and scientific research related to anesthesiology.[1]

Membership of the IARS includes individuals who are engaged in all aspects of anesthesiology: physicians in clinical practice of anesthesia, physicians in academia, physicians or PhD's engaged in research, resident physicians in training programs, and individuals in the allied health professions.

In addition to publishing Anesthesia & Analgesia and A&A Case Reports, the IARS sponsors an annual clinical and scientific conference, funds anesthesia-related research through a multi-faceted grant program, sponsors a wiki for anesthesia residents called OpenAnesthesia, and supports a joint project with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration called SmartTots (formerly called Safekids) to study the effects of anesthesia on the developing nervous systems of infants and young children.[2]

The IARS is affiliated with eight leading medical societies: The Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists, the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia, the Society for Ambulatory Anesthesia, the International Society for Anaesthetic Pharmacology, the Society for Technology in Anesthesia, the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation, the Society of Critical Care Anesthesiologists, and the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology. Anesthesia & Analgesia serves as the official journal for all of these societies.
