Description: INTRODUCTION This handbook has two potential uses. It can be used ‘on-the-spot’ in the event of an anaesthetic emergency. But its primary role is as an educational resource. It is given to anaesthetic trainees/ rural generalists in an attempt to equip them with the knowledge to learn and practise the principles for the safe administration of anaesthesia. Most hospital Departments of Anaesthesia will have other handbooks containing guidelines eg. Preadmission Clinic, Acute Pain Service. This handbook outlines management strategies for all of the common anaesthetic emergencies. The content has a local focus, i.e. it references predominantly Australian and Queensland produced guidelines. A very valuable resource that practitioners may forget to utilize in a crisis situation is your anaesthetic assistant. Commonly they have a wealth of experience and have been involved in the management of numerous crises in the past. Often they will be able to locate and rectify an equipment problem faster and more efficiently than you. Ask for and heed advice from your anaesthetic assistant.
