Awareness

Accidental awareness during general anaesthesia (AAGA) is a rare event occurring in around 1:20,000 general anaesthetics. It has been the subject of previous national studies (NAP5) and more recently a handbook, to encourage best practice in the avoidance of AAGA, based on the finding of NAP5.

This project is a regional service evaluation of the measures taken to avoid AAGA, including the use of end tidal anaesthetic gas alarms and the use of depth of anaesthesia monitoring in patients receiving TIVA along with NMBDs.

Data collection is occurring across 8 Wessex sites
