Awareness at tracheal intubation Awareness at intubation results from inadequate anaesthesia and may occur during the ­management of a difficult airway. Problems with mask ventilation can lead to inadequate alveolar and brain concentrations of inhalational agents to provide anaesthesia for intubation. Furthermore nitrous oxide is often discontinued to provide additional oxygen. Patients tolerant to anaesthetic drugs may also be at greater risk of awareness of intubation in the presence of a normal airway.

If the tracheal tube has been misplaced the patient requires urgent oxygenation and reintubation. Where the misplaced TT has been used for ventilation, gastric distension may lead to regurgitation as the tube is removed from the oesophagus. Displacement of a TT or airway displacement is most likely when the surgeon requires access to the head and neck. Flexion of the head can lead to accidental extubation particularly in children. Extubation is of concern if the patient is apnoeic, or at risk of aspiration, since the lower airway will be unprotected.

Although this project remains in its infancy it promises to produce a novel and effective means of improving patient safety. Re-evaluation Following the institution of methods to reduce risk it is imperative that risk-reduction procedures be reviewed for effectiveness. Robust local and national policies and audit practices with prompt analysis and feedback are essential. Patient safety is more than safe anaesthesia. Anaesthesia has been at the forefront in the nascent field of patient safety. Many ongoing projects pioneered within anaesthesia will continue to push this vital field forward.
