Abstract

This article describes the implementation and utilization of a continuous quality improvement (CQI) program in the identification, analysis, and correction of a rate-based event in anesthesia, in this case, intraoperative hypertension. A CQI program was implemented based on voluntary, handwritten, anonymous reports of intraoperative and postanesthesia care unit events. This CQI program detected a high incidence of intraoperative hypertension, indicated major causal factors, suggested a set of corrective measures, and allowed for measurement of their efficacy.
