The Anaesthetic Crisis Manual The Anaesthetic Crisis Manual (The ACM), was first published in 2011 and is a collection of 22 life threatening crises that anaesthetists manage in everyday practice. Based on the cockpit QRH (quick reference handbook) used in the airline industry, and using CRM (crew resource management) principles developed for aviation safety, the ACM brings tried and tested checklist instruction to the field of Patient Safety. Using accepted national and international resuscitation guidelines, as well as input from anaesthetic special interest groups, the ACM is presented in highly functional, robust and fluid resistant material, ideal for the operating room environment. Consisting of both a Crisis Protocol section, which provides a checklist of tasks to complete when the diagnosis is known, and a Crisis Prevention section for troubleshooting before a crisis develops, the ACM provides concise, clear and simply worded instructions for use by any health professional leading or assisting in crisis management.
The ACM has been both endorsed and extensively referenced by the European Society of Anaesthesiology in the creation of their website based operating room crisis checklists, consistent with the goals of the 2009 Helsinki Declaration. It was ‘Highly Commended’ in the BMA 2012 Medical Book Awards and is endorsed by the Australian Society of Anaesthetists. For more information please follow this link: www.theacm.com.au
