The purpose of this crisis manual is to be a resource for anesthesiologists and to prepare them for stressful situations that may arise during neurosurgical procedures. It is meant to be a reference only and a cognitive aid in emergency situations. It is NOT a guideline or a protocol that anesthesiologists are obligated to follow. This manual may provide a vehicle for input and practical strategies when facing critical events with neurosurgical patients


Author is revising the manual and will issue a new version under the title Neuroanesthesia Emergency Checklists.
