Anaesthetic gas - monitoring practice and motivating change
An update to a post i entered 8 months ago. Since introducing regular monitoring of our anaesthetic gas usage and encouraging reduced desflurane use we continue to see a steady decline in Desflurane use in our department (see attached quarterly report). This is great news but still we could do better. Great to hear about the appointment of Dr Cathy Lawson as the new CSH Environmental Sustainability Anaesthesia Fellow, congratulations!
