Well after a rather long absence (involving certain exam distractions) we’re finally back in action here, and the timing couldn’t really be better with the recent publication of the 5th National Audit Project (NAP-5). In a similar manner to the previous NAPs, this project took a national look at a specific area of anaesthetic practice, in this case ‘Accidental Awareness under General Anaesthesia’ (AAGA). The summary articles have been published in Anaesthesia journal (and I believe in the next BJA), as well as the full report available through the NAP homepage, all of which are freely available if you haven’t had chance to view them yet. As such, I thought it’d be worthwhile to have a quick flick through their findings and see what we can take from the audit back to our daily practice.
