About this webinar
This webinar was kindly funded by GE Healthcare, and therefore we are able to offer it for free. The agenda and speakers are organised and selected by the Association of Anaesthetists.
Providing a safe environment for anaesthesia in areas such as radiology, cardiac catheterisation and endoscopy is an increasing need as the demands for these services are growing in the immediate post pandemic era. These locations are often remote from main theatres and require experienced specialist staff from different fields to deliver care. Some of these areas do not have equipment that may be readily available in the theatres such as fully-fledged anaesthetic machines, high quality airway equipment etc. Anaesthesia in these areas is fraught with risks and this is well recognised by safety in anaesthesia groups across the world. Much teaching and training has gone into delivering safe anaesthesia in these environments.
This Webinar on NORA, looks at practices across the world and shares expertise on how one can deliver high quality care in these areas and at the same time improve safety. The international panel will give an insight into how health centres may bring changes to their non-operating room environments to deliver safer anaesthesia.
