Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A modification to a computer based system of audit, widely used in anaesthesia for general surgery, is described, which permits a more detailed analysis of obstetric anaesthetic workload. By adjusting entries, in the operation input field, further information can be collected automatically. This allows the total number of regional anaesthetic procedures, including those in patients with epidurals for labour who progressed to caesarean section, to be calculated. It identifies the total number of caesarean sections, including anaesthetic technique and whether an epidural catheter was, in any case, present. This modification may be applicable to other computerised audit systems.
