Welcome to the GASNet Home Page. GASNet is a suite of services provided to the anesthesiology community by Keith J Ruskin, MD, with the assistance of D John Doyle, MD, Thomas Engel, MD and Darryl Kuperstock. Denise Silber suggested the current format of the home page. The GASNet WWW Server is located in the Yale Center for Medical Informatics, and is maintained in cooperation with the Society for Advanced Telecommunications in Anesthesia.

GASNet now has two full mirror sites, each of which is updated daily. The mirrors are located at (The Netherlands) or (Australia). Connect to the site that is closest to you or provides the fastest response time.

You can hear a spoken welcome in English or Japanese.


GASNet is supported in part by a generous grant from the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation.

GASNet is supported in part by an educational gift from Williams and Wilkins.

Some GASNet services are made possible by equipment generously provided by the Hewlett-Packard Company.

GASNet is also supported by the Department of Anesthesiology of the Yale University School of Medicine.

GASNet works in close cooperation with several publishers, including Lippincott-Raven Publishers and Williams & Wilkins.
