Audit was a buzz word of the late '80s and early '90s, but in anaesthetic practice the important issues are quality of service and safety of the patient and audit is used to monitor and agree standards for these two.
With contributions from leading figures in anaesthetic audit, "Quality and Safety in Anaesthesia" describes the important work already done and addresses vital aspects such as risk management, resource management, standards and postgraduate training, critical incidents and human error, use of computers, design of equipment for safety and managing a department of anaesthesia.
This book relates the process of quality assurance to the drive to improve the quality of anaesthetic practice. It should be useful for all those working or thinking about working in anaesthetic departments, and will be revealing to all those with an interest in quality and audit.
