PMID:  20865867     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This report involves a review of 736 cases of anaesthesia-related morbidity reported from 1990 to 2005 by the Victorian Consultative Council on Anaesthetic Mortality and Morbidity. Using a combination of an established classification system, emerging categorisation definitions and appropriate keywords, an analysis of the clinical issues and contributory factors was undertaken. Airway-related morbidity, respiratory complications and drug-related adverse events are the most commonly reported. Organisational issues are increasingly implicated in adverse anaesthesia outcomes.
