This book is unique in providing a comprehensive overview of the human factors issues relevant to patient safety during acute care. By elucidating the principles of human behavior and decision-making in critical situations and identifying frequent sources of human error, it will help healthcare professionals provide safer, more effective treatment when dealing with emergencies characterized by uncertainty, high stakes, time pressure, and stress. The third edition has emerged from an ongoing synergistic relationship between clinicians and behavioral scientists on both sides of the Atlantic to update and enhance each chapter -- blending the strengths of the two professions into a readily accessible text. Among other improvements, readers will find sharper articulation of concepts and significantly more information on the organizational impact on individual and team performance. Crisis Management in Acute Care Settings is the required reference for all who are learning about, teaching, or providing acute and emergency healthcare. It will be of high value for undergraduate and graduate medical and nursing program and offer a much-needed resource for those who use high-fidelity healthcare simulation to teach teamwork.

In hoch technisierten Arbeitsbereichen wie der Anästhesiologie zählen menschliche Fehler zu den häufigsten Ursachen für Komplikationen und Zwischenfälle. Daher ist es besonders wichtig, typische Gefahrenquellen zu kennen und aus bereits erfolgten Fehlern oder Beinahe-Zwischenfällen zu lernen! In diesem Buch finden Sie 111 Fallberichte, basierend auf wahren Gegebenheiten, praxisnah und anschaulich erzählt. Die Fallberichte stammen zum Teil aus der Datenbank des CIRS-AINS, wurden von den Autoren so oder in ähnlicher Form persönlich erlebt, oder beruhen auf anonymisierten Berichten. Sie beschreiben die wichtigsten Komplikationen in der Anästhesie, von klassischen bis hin zu eher seltenen Zwischenfällen. Fehleranalysen und Empfehlungen zur Fehlervermeidung machen dieses Buch zu einem ausgezeichneten Instrument für die Qualitätssicherung und das Fehlermanagement in der Anästhesie. Alle Fälle sind einheitlich aufgebaut und enthalten: - Hintergrundbeschreibungen der Fehleinschätzungen, Fehlentscheidungen und Fehlhandlungen - Konsequenzen für den Patienten - Interpretationen aus Sicht des Anästhesisten und oft auch aus Sicht des Juristen - Weitere Informationen zur Komplikationsentstehung, Fehlervermeidung, Qualitätssicherung - Wichtige Take Home Messages Neu in dieser Auflage: Spannende neue Fälle aus den Bereichen Regionalanästhesie, Herz-Kreislauf, Transfusionsmedizin, Transplantation und Schmerztherapie.
