The 2023 Anesthesia History Association Spring Meeting will be held in person Thursday to Saturday April 20-22, 2023 in Oklahoma City, OK.

The meeting invites abstracts that relate in some manner to historical aspects of anesthesia and anesthesiology including critical care and pain management.  Abstracts that are accepted will be presented at the meeting, in person, as twenty-minute podium presentations.  Copies will be distributed to meeting registrants, posted on the AHA website and may be published in the Journal of Anesthesia History.  All are welcome and encouraged to submit abstracts.

Abstracts should be composed in Microsoft Word and submitted as an electronic file that fits on a single page with one-inch margins when printed.  All text should be in Times New Roman.  The abstract should be constructed with the title centered at the top of the page in 18 point bold followed by author information aligned at the left margin in 12 point bold including author name, degree, contact information and institutional affiliation.  The body of the abstract should be in 12 point regular.  Content should be structured to aid the reader in understanding the abstract material.  This might include sections such as background, aim, resources, methodology, results, conclusions and references.  Images, tables and graphs may be included but must be in black and white and fit within the page margins.  References should be at the end of the abstract in 10 point regular.

Abstracts should be submitted electronically as an attachment to an email directed to the Abstracts Editor, Stephen Dierdorf, M.D. at  The submission must include:

  • A Microsoft Word file containing the abstract content. The file name should include the first author’s last name, followed by first name, followed by brief descriptor.  For example, “McNiece William Guedel in Indianapolis.docx”
  • An abbreviated curriculum vitae (a single page that includes identification, degrees and institution, and academic affiliation is sufficient)

The abstract deadline is March 15, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time. Abstracts will be reviewed for acceptance on a rolling basis.  Individuals submitting abstracts will be notified of the decision on abstract acceptance soon after the decision is made.
