Typing and formating 

  • The abstract should be written in English. Use British spelling, e.g. anesthesia, oesophagus, crystalloid. However, you can easily eliminate many typing errors and misspelling by using the spell-check feature of your word processing software. 
  • The layout of the abstract should be the following: 
  • Title Box must only include the Title. Total numbers characters allowed including spacing is 150. 
  • Text Box, starting a new line for each subheading: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, and References. The title should be brief and in Bold capitals. Headings of the text (Introduction, Methods, etc.) should be Bold sentence case. The total numbers of characters allowed including spacing is 2800, which includes figures and tables. 
  • The preferred font is Arial (or similar) with a size no smaller than 11 point (9cpi). Note that the accepted abstracts will be reduced to approximately 80 % of the original size when they are printed. Smaller size will result in unreadable text. The maximum amount of letters is 450 words.
  • Use the SI-system for all units of measurement (e.g. ml, kg, kPa) with the exception of mmHg for blood pressures. With two items or more, negative exponents should be used, e.g. ml 
  • min-1. The use of abbreviations should be minimized, and they must be defined the first time they are used. 
  • One figure or one table within the borders of the abstract is allowed. Figure and tables should be aligned with the text. Text in the figures or tables will also be reduced to 80%. Be sure that all text in the figure or table is readable. Ensure that lines on figures are thick enough to bear reduction for printing. All figures should be in black-and-white. 
  • You may use one and but no more than three relevant references, numbered () in order of appearance in the text and listed at the end of the text. They should have the following sequence: author(s), title, journal (as abbreviated in Index Medicus), year, volume and pages. For example: Latimer RD. Inhaled nitric oxide in the management of pulmonary hypertension after mitral valve surgery. Br J Anaesth 1994; 72: 185-9. 
  • Key Words are not needed
