VigiVU: an app to increase the efficiency of anesthesiologists in the OR

The efficiency of anesthesiologists in the OR is always something that hospitals are looking into. In response to this need, researchers at Vanderbilt University recently reported the creation and successful implementation of a medical app that can be used to increase their situational awareness of patients. Their implementation of the app focused on its use by anesthesiologists, but the app could be replicated in concept to meet the needs of other health professionals

MyAnaesthetic: A patient education app that could do better

MyAnaesthetic attempts to fill the void with “clear jargon free explanations” of anesthesia techniques. It was developed by UK anaesthesiologists who wanted to improve patient information after they apparently found a lack of clear information on the internet. If you are a patient looking for more information about anesthesia I would suggest you speak with your anaesthesiologist or visit the excellent websites of the American Society for Anesthesiology or the Royal College of Anaesthetists.
