The Society for Technology in Anesthesia (STA) is an international organization of physicians, engineers, students and others with an interest in anesthesia-related technologies. Its mission is to improve the quality of patient care in anesthesia by promulgating the development of better healthcare technologies and the more appropriate application of technology. The Society promotes education and research, collaborates with local, national, and international organizations, sponsors meetings and exhibitions, awards grants, and recognizes achievement. Membership is open to all who are interested. The journal Anesthesia & Analgesia is STA’s official publication.

The Society for Technology in Anesthesia is pleased to announce it’s 8th Annual Engineering Challenge to be held in conjunction with the 2016 Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, FL. The competition is open to engineering student groups (BS, MS, or PhD level) from accredited university engineering departments. Groups may have faculty mentorship, but the work should be that of the students. The work may be part of an engineering design course.
