Abstract

Critical incident reporting is a very useful technique for reducing anaesthetic morbidity and mortality. It may also be used as a tool for clinical audit at departmental level. Airway incidents constituted the main sector of critical events in our study, consistent with findings reported by morbidity and mortality studies worldwide. Human error was identified as the main factor contributing to the Occurrence of adverse incidents. Besides regular morbidity and mortality meetings at departmental level, critical incident monitoring plays an important role in identifying further potential problems. The findings from anaesthesia incident monitoring study (AIMS) can provide detailed qualitative information which can be used to develop strategies to prevent and manage existing problems at both regional and national levels, as well as to plan for further initiatives.
