Episode 37: OR Crises

In this episode, episode 37, I go over crises that can happen in the OR, when to suspect them, and what to do about them.  I draw from two excellent sets of OR crisis checklists that are available for free.  The Stanford Anesthesia Cognitive Aid Group’s lists and the Ariadne Labs/Brigham/Harvard School of Public Health lists.

The Stanford checklists can be downloaded for free here: http://emergencymanual.stanford.edu

The Harvard checklists can be downloaded for free here: http://www.projectcheck.org/crisis-checklist-download.html
