Main Digest

The work of our nation's 60,000+ peri-anesthesia nurses will be recognized February 2-8 during Peri-Anesthesia Nurse Awareness Week (PANAW), which is celebrated throughout the United States the first full week of February.

This article is part our digest of 125 publications relating to Disability Awareness that include:

This year's theme is, "Peri-Anesthesia Nurses: Dedicated Professionals, Passionate Care," and the American Society of Peri-Anesthesia Nurses (ASPAN), in conjunction with its forty chartered components, will recognize the extraordinary work its nurses perform throughout the year.

This includes caring for patients before and after procedures requiring anesthesia, sedation, and analgesia.

Approximately 40 million anesthetics are administered in the U.S. each year.

During PANAW, peri-anesthesia nurses throughout the country are encouraged to wear and display official PANAW items to increase the public's awareness of their life-sustaining practice.

ASPAN represents the interests of nurses who practice in pre-anesthesia and post-anesthesia care, outpatient surgery, pain management, and endoscopy settings.

Its mission includes producing evidence-based research, promoting education, optimizing patient care, establishing national standards, and serving as an advocate for peri-anesthesia nurses.

ASPAN is available online at www.aspan.org

PANAW items are available online at: www.panaw.com
