    This ASCEND (acquiring skills, career exploration, networking and development) webinar aims to help students and newly qualified practitioners to develop the practical and personal skills needed to succeed during the early years of their perioperative career. It will focus on two main skills - leadership and the management of anaesthetic emergencies. Leadership is often mistaken for something that only comes with vast experience in a particular discipline. We will be re-examining ‘what is leadership?’ and introducing some leadership opportunities available early in your perioperative care

    A grieving family has welcomed new guidance to try to prevent a common surgical procedure from going wrong and causing deaths. Oesophageal intubation occurs when a breathing tube is placed into the oesophagus, the tube leading to the stomach, instead of the trachea, the tube leading to the windpipe. It can lead to brain damage or death if not spotted promptly. Glenda Logsdail died at Milton Keynes University Hospital in 2020 after a breathing tube was accidentally inserted into her oesophagus. The 60-year-old radiographer was being prepared for an appendicitis operation when the

    Key recommendations Exhaled carbon dioxide monitoring and pulse oximetry should be available and used for all episodes of airway management. Routine use of a videolaryngoscope is recommended whenever feasible. At each attempt at laryngoscopy, the airway operator is encouraged to verbalise the view obtained. The airway operator and assistant should each verbalise whether ‘sustained exhaled carbon dioxide’ and adequate oxygen saturation are present. Inability to detect sustained exhaled carbon dioxide requires oesophageal intubation to be actively excluded. T

    A perfect storm of pandemic pressures, changes to the medical curriculum and inadequate Health Education England funding threatens to leave 700 anaesthetists without a job this summer, HSJ has learned. The news comes as the NHS prepares to tackle the huge backlog of elective care work that has built up during the pandemic. Anaesthetists will play a critical role in the recovery effort. Each year around 300 higher training, or ST3, places for anaesthetists are offered by the NHS. However, this year there are over 1,000 applicants for these posts. The oversupply has been created by th

    The anaesthetist has a primary responsibility to understand the function of the anaesthetic equipment and check it before use. Anaesthetists should not use equipment unless they have been trained in its use and are competent to do so. A self-inflating bag should be immediately available in any location where anaesthesia is given. A two-bag test should be performed after the breathing system, vaporisers and ventilator have been individually checked. A record should be kept with the anaesthetic machine that these checks have been carried out. The ‘first user’ check, after servicing, is especiall

    From the 5365 operations, 188 adverse events were recorded. Of these, 106 adverse events (56.4%) were due to human error, of which cognitive error accounted for 99 of 192 human performance deficiencies (51.6%). These data provide a framework and impetus for new quality improvement initiatives incorporating cognitive training to mitigate human error in surgery.

    In this report, the Coroner states their concerns as follows: No formal risk assessment tool was adopted to assess preoperative risk prior to Mrs Shivalkar's total hip replacement revision surgery. Despite policy changes at Barts Heath NHS Trust since 2018, there remains no requirement to utilise such a tool. Poor communication between the orthopaedic surgical team and the anaesthetist during surgery led to a collective failure to identify a critically ill patient. General and non-specific questions regarding the patient's welfare passed between the two teams but no targeted que

    Key findings: 44% of respondents are not confident in their hospital’s ability to provide planned surgery safely while managing COVID-19 demand during future surges. Nearly two-thirds of respondents (64%) have, to some extent during the last month, suffered mental distress because of additional work related stress due to COVID-19. Nearly nine in ten trainees (89%) strongly agree that the pandemic is affecting their training opportunities, career and professional development. Key recommendations: NHS Improvement should publish a new People Plan, with the investment a

    Key findings 44% of respondents were not confident their hospitals would be able to provide safe COVID and non-COVID services should there be a second surge of infections. Over one third (38%) of respondents also cited low or non-existent rapid testing for staff at their hospitals and one-in-five (20%) said there are currently insufficient infection prevention and control measures to prevent staff from infecting surgical patients with COVID-19. Results also highlighted the increasing trend in mental distress amongst anaesthetists and the disruption to the training opportunitie
