Anaesthesia Crisis Management Manual
The 2nd Edition of the CMM is based upon the first 4000 AIMS Anaesthesia voluntary and anonymous incident reports submitted to APSF from practising anaesthetists in Australia and New Zealand. It contains stepwise protocols for the clinical management of 28 of the most commonly encountered acute clinical situations in anaesthesia practice (including paediatric anaesthesia). Special Appendices deal with adrenaline (and some other) critical dosage calculations and preparations.
The protocols have been internally validated against those incident reports relating to each respective crisis where the management and/or outcome were identified as sub-optimal. Rapid access to each protocol is facilitated by attachable adhesive finger tabs.
Requests for copies of this 2nd Edition, at a cost of Aus$20.00 for Australia and New Zealand (+ GST within Australia only) and $27 plus postage for overseas orders only, are available by phone, email or mail, via the following contacts:
