In this article, we address whether emergency manuals are an effective means of helping anesthesiologists and perioperative teams apply known best practices for critical events. [...] Key Result We emphasize the importance of training clinicians in the use of emergency manuals for education on content, format, and location. Finally, we discuss cultural readiness for change, present a system example of successful integration, and highlight the importance of further research on the implementation of emergency…Expand
Free Emergency Manual Books Improve Actual Clinical Use During Crisis in China
TLDR
A nationwide survey in China finds that groups who received the free EM manuals demonstrated significantly higher levels of self-review, group study, simulation training participation, and usage during critical events than groups that did not receive the free books. Expand
Emergency Manual Implementation in a Large Academic Anesthesia Practice: Strategy and Improvement in Performance on Critical Steps
TLDR
While full integration of the EM was not achieved 6 months after implementation, verbalization of critical steps on 3 simulated crisis events improved when the EM is utilized. Expand
Bringing Perioperative Emergency Manuals to Your Institution: A "How To" from Concept to Implementation in 10 Steps.
TLDR
A framework and detailed description of the steps a large academic institution followed in successfully implementing emergency manuals is presented, so that those interested in introducing OR EMs at large, complex institutions may benefit from the experience shared in anticipating challenges and overcoming barriers to adoption. Expand
Clinical Uses and Impacts of Emergency Manuals During Perioperative Crises
TLDR
Evidence is provided that EMs in operating rooms are being used during many applicable crises and that clinicians perceive EM use to add value, and that negative effects were minimal and potentially offset by positive effects. Expand

TLDR
Current understanding and available resources for cognitive aid design, implementation, and use in obstetrics are summarized and existing gaps are highlighted to highlight existing gaps that can stimulate further enhancement in this field. Expand
Emergency manual implementation: can brief simulation-based or staff trainings increase familiarity and planned clinical use?
TLDR
Implementing institutions should not only provide EMs in accessible places in ORs but also incorporate training mechanisms to increase clinicians' familiarity, cultural acceptance, and planned clinical use. Expand

Emergency Manuals Improved Novice Physician Performance During Simulated ICU Emergencies.
TLDR
The use of an emergency manual was associated with a significant improvement in critical event management by individual novice physicians in a simulated ICU patient (23% average increase). Expand
Emergency Manual Uses During Actual Critical Events and Changes in Safety Culture From the Perspective of Anesthesia Residents: A Pilot Study
TLDR
A pilot study to assess perspectives on local OR safety culture regarding cognitive aid use before and after a systematic clinical implementation of EMs, although in the context of long-standing resident simulation trainings, and to describe early clinical uses of EM during critical events. Expand
The Ryder Cognitive Aid Checklist for Trauma Anesthesia
TLDR
This work adapted a recently published “trauma and emergency checklist” for the initial phase of resuscitation and anesthesia of critically ill trauma patients into an applicable perioperative cognitive aid in the form of a pictogram that can be downloaded by the medical community. Expand

The Use of Cognitive Aids During Simulated Pediatric Cardiopulmonary Arrests
TLDR
Although the majority of residents chose to use cognitive aids for assistance, errors in management were common and further study is required to determine whether these errors are associated with cognitive aid design flaws and whether improving their design through human factors research can help minimize errors in Basic and Advanced Life Support, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
