Abstract

Introduction: The advancement of Anesthesiology depends to a large extent on scientific dissemination; developed countries present greater scientific production; In Latin America, the performance of bibliometric analyzes on the behavior of research in the specialty is imposed.
Objective: to describe the trends, collaboration and impact of Latin American scientific production in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine indexed in Scopus and Web of Science between 2012 and 2021.
Method: A metric analysis of the information was carried out on the articles published in the Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine research area in Scopus and Web of Science. 2,386 articles from Web of Science and 4,876 from Scopus were analyzed; Metric indicators were studied (Number of documents; percentage of documents; citations; types of collaboration; quartiles; journals; year of publication; country; institutions; author and H Index).
Results: 2021 was the year with the highest volume of articles (12.96%). The most productive country was Brazil. The Mexican Journal of Anesthesiology obtained the highest publication frequency (935 articles). The University of São Paulo published 476 articles between 2012-2021. Carrillo-Esper R stood out with 86 articles. Brazil reached a higher frequency of documents in journals in all quartiles. 30.4% was national collaboration.
Conclusions: The Latin American scientific production in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine behaved according to economic development, the number of scientific journals and related lines of research, institutional support and national collaboration.
