  • Advisory Notices for Anaesthetists
    The Advisory Notices for Anaesthetists have recently been updated and now have a search feature. In order to view these reports, please login and then select the new Advisory Notices option in the menu bar above. This has replaced the previous name ANA - Alerts, following a name change that was decided at the ANZTADC committee meeting on the 6th November 2021. The notices will now feature interesting cases as well as Alerts.
  • COVID-19 Reporting
    Fortunately most COVID-19 cases in Australia and New Zealand are not community acquired as of early May 2021. However, there are a number of cases in hotel quarantine and some of these require admission to hospital or internsive care. WebAIRS is collecting reports involving COVID-19, or suspected COVID-19 cases, and deidentified information will be disseminated in the publications and bulletins of the parent organisations, to help to improve patient and healthcare worker safety. Previous reports over the last year include cases where there were difficulties managing suspected COVID-19 cases as well as reports where PPE was inadequate or failed. Login and select Advisory Notices to view some examples.

About ANZTADC - the parent organisations that created webAIRS
ANZTADC is the Australian and New Zealand Tripartite Anaesthetic Data Committee. This committee represents and is funded by three organisations, the Australian Society of Anaesthetists, the New Zealand Society of Anaesthetists and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. The committee has developed 'WebAIRS' (web based anaesthetic incident reporting system). This program can be incorporated into hospital systems to assist anaesthetists to report, evaluate and receive information regarding anaesthetic incidents. The results of the incident analyses may be fed back into the system and so the 'loop' can be closed as part of a quality improvement system.
