dc.description.abstract The operating room (OR) is usually a very controlled environment. There are rituals and routines that are characteristic of the OR and often makes for a predictable day. However, surgical intricacies may lead to rapid patient deterioration. As anesthesia providers the onus is upon us to identify and rectify the problem and restore equilibration. The focus of the capstone project to be undertaken by Naomi Maina, Sarah Bringas and Claston Reid is to provide a systematic approach to identifying common and not so common operating room emergencies and also present algorithms for the treatment of such emergencies. The importance of this project cannot be over stated. It is a known fact that judgment, memory and tactile response are significantly impaired during acutely stressful situations. And therefore this project seeks to give the anesthesia provider, especially the new provider some of the basic tools needed to deal with OR emergencies. en_US
