Welcome to version 2 of the Anaesthetic crisis resource I have created. It is back with a new name; Anaesthetic Crisis Handbook, as well as many updates including new pages, and many new design features. A change log can be found here. It has taken many, many days, no probably weeks to get this over the line (phew).
**Edit Oct 17: I have just uploaded v2.1. Mostly some minor additions mostly to do with adding in more paeds emergency information. 1 major correction on infraglottic rescue: 2nd breath via cannula should be 500ml not 250ml as stated in v2.0)**
Why use a handbook in a crisis? Because I’m increasingly convinced that we should be focusing on improving non-technical skills rather than sweating about remembering rarely needed facts. (plus there is a fair amount of evidence behind them (see here)
This resource is for educational purposes as well as improving patient safety. I have no interest in commercial gain. It is aimed at a New Zealand audience and a resource for hospitals and staff local to my region to be able to access the resource.
If you are interested in a very good commercial product I would recommend The ACM which can be found here.
Contrary to my partners usual order of eating, here’s the best bit first. The manual is downloadable as an enhanced .pdf file. Contents pages are clickable for quick easy navigation throughout the document.
Digital enhanced pdf version: Digital Crisis Manual
Feel free to delve into the project further…..
I hope you find the manual interesting & useful. Any feedback would be much appreciated!
Cheers, Adam Hollingworth
