Medicolegal resource

There have been a number of high profile cases in the news relating to patients coming to harm during anaesthesia. The cases we report are constructed from elements of real cases from MPS files chosen because of their value as cautionary tales. They tend, therefore, to focus on mistakes, slips and oversights which we hope will serve to alert you to common and not-so-common pitfalls.

The medicolegal advice and opinions are for general guidance only. They are not definitive and if you have a medico-legal problem you should seek further specific advice from your own medical defence organisation. Facts have been altered to preserve confidentiality

Case reports

Case 1: A sticky situation
Case 2: Don't blame it on the bougie
