Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (APM) is the official scientific journal of the Korean Society of Neuroscience in Anesthesiology and Critical Care (KSNACC), the Korean Society for Anesthetic Pharmacology (KSAP), the Korean Society of Obstetric Anesthesiologists (KSOA), the Korean Society of Pediatric Anesthesiologists (KSPA), the Korean Neuromuscular Research Society (KNRS), the Korean Society of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesiologists (KSCVA), the Korean Society of Transplantation Anesthesiologists (KSTA), the Korean Spinal Pain Society (KSPS), the Korean Society of Regional Anesthesia (KSRA), the Korean Society for Airway Managemet (KSAM), and the Korean Society of Geriatric Anesthesia and Pain (KSGAP). The abbreviated title is "Anesth Pain Med". It is published in English four times a year on the last day of January, April, July, and October.

APM aims to improve the safety and care of patients receiving anesthesia and the quality of anesthesiologists’ clinical practice by publishing articles on anesthesiology, including perioperative management, critical care, and pain

The scope of APM includes the following:

  • Anesthesia-related issues from the affiliated field of neuroanesthesiology
  • Experimental and laboratory work or studies of clinical relevance in anesthetic pharmacology
  • Anesthesia care and perioperative management for obstetric patient, pain relief in labor, and perinatal physiology and pharmacology
  • Anesthetic care, perioperative management, and alleviation of pain in children
  • Physiology of neuromuscular transmission and blockage, the pharmacology of neuromuscular blocking agents and their reversal agents, the principles and applications of neuromuscular monitoring, and drug interactions between neuromuscular blocking agents and other substances
  • Anesthesia for cardiothoracic and vascular surgery and the management of patients undergoing surgery for cardiac, pulmonary, and vascular diseases
  • Perioperative anesthesia care of transplantation surgery, physiology or pharmacology related to transplantation anesthesiology
  • Pathophysiology, pharmacology, and all respects of spine-related pain
  • Clinical techniques of regional blocks, anatomy, patient safety issues, and basic sciences such as pharmacology of local anesthetics or sedative drugs
  • All fields of airway management, including difficult airways and complications.
  • Educational fundamentals and practical implications for clinical and experimental research related to anesthesia, perioperative care and pain management.
  • All fields of perioperative geriatric care, including presurgical optimization, anesthetic management and monitoring, and enhanced recovery after surgery.

The journal’s regional focus is mainly Korea, but it welcomes submissions from researchers all over the world.

This work was supported by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies (KOFST) grant funded by the Korean government.
