Review Paper


Clinical monitoring and technology are at the heart of anesthesiology, and new technological developments will help to define how anesthesiology will evolve as a profession. Anesthesia related research published in the JCMC in 2018 mainly pertained to ICU sedation with inhaled agents, anesthesia workstation technology, and monitoring of different aspects of depth of anesthesia.
