oa Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia - Evidence-based anaesthesia : SASA refresher course texts
When considering evidence-based anaesthesia, the following questions need to be asked:
- Does it work?: Is there reliable evidence that thisintervention provides patients with benefits that they think important?
- Can I use it?: Can I, and the system in which I work, deliver this intervention so that patients realise these benefits?
- Should I use it?: Does this particular patient, when informed of the potential harms and benefits, want me to use it? Does the society in which I work want me to use this intervention, as opposed to other competing interventions?
