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. It has taken many, many days, no probably weeks to get this over the line.
Please see here for version history.
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 handbook is downloadable as an enhanced .pdf file. Contents pages are clickable for quick easy navigation throughout the document.
Generic Version June 2018
v2.6 Digital enhanced pdf version: Digital Anaesthetic Crisis Handbook (WARNING: If you open with iBooks or preview this will permanently kill the clickable links in this file. Use any other pdf reader – blame apple!)
Feel free to delve into the project further…..
I hope you find the handbook interesting & useful. Any feedback would be much appreciated!
Cheers, Adam Hollingworth
