Sharing the teamwork with the anaesthetists

Coming down to a trauma call or other sick patient in ED is a stressful time for anaesthetists as they are working in a different environment, with a different team and a with a patient who will always have suboptimal preparation. The RSI check list is a moment for everyone to make sure that all the equipment is in place and to ensure that everyone in the team is aware of what is going on…and feel able to help should the need for escalation arise. No-one can forget the Martin Bromiley video Just a routine operation.
