Patcharee Phoson


The skills in anesthesiology (technical skills) were
rapidly developed and continuously progressed in all
areas, especially the safety of anesthetic services. There
are, however, reports of incidents affecting patient safety
at a high level. In work often, an error occurs, which may
be an accidental mistake and/or unavoidable. Department
of Anesthesiology Faculty of Medicine Siriraj, therefore,
takes the importance of planning to increase security in
anesthesia service in personnel at all levels including
nurse anesthetist students into account. There are the
formulation of guidelines and the training for clear safety
standards to develop the skills in using various equipment.
The equipment has the qualifications to help increasing
the modern security and to strengthen the safety culture
in personnel for the development of all-round skills, which
leads to enhance awareness and to ensure the maximum
safety in patient care as well.
