WebAIRS News - events, new features and web pages recently released
  • ASA/NSZA CSC 2022
    The Combined ASA/NSZA scientific meeting CSC 2022 was recently held in Wellington, NZ, from October 21-24, 2022 in both face to face and virtual formats. See the webAIRS Events page for more details. We thank all the webAIRS registered users in Australia and New Zealand for contributing over 10,000 incidents since its inception 12 years ago and would like to thank the ANZTAD Committee members for their ongoing support of webAIRS, their involvement this year, and their commitment in 2022. Please visit the Publications section, using the green button above to view the most recent publications.

  • COVID-19 Reporting
    Until the beginning of 2021, most COVID-19 cases in Australia and New Zealand were not community acquired. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case but with the current high vaccination rates most cases do not require admission to hospital or intensive care. WebAIRS is collecting reports involving COVID-19, or suspected COVID-19 cases, and de-identified information will be disseminated in the publications and bulletins of the parent organisations, to help to improve patient and healthcare worker safety. An article will be published in the upcoming March editions of the ASA and NZSA magazines. During this current outbreak with high numbers we ask webAIRS users to report any issues with health staff infections, PPE, Equipment not easily accessible due to COVID, delay in response during calls for help, or any other COVID related matters. Login and select Advisory Notices to view some examples. To report a case, log in and then follow incidents on the menu above, then select COVID-19 incident.

  • 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 those flagged by the reporter as an Alert.
  • Australian and New Zealand Anaesthetic Allergy Group (ANZAAG)
    Management guidelines and cards to assist with anaphylaxis diagnosis and management are available on the ANZAAG website which is co-hosted with webAIRS.   ANZAAG Website - Click here
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.
