We aimed to evaluate the suitability of monitoring, standard infrastructure and equipment in anesthesia applications of anesthesiology reanimation specialists and resident physicians working in Istanbul and increase the awareness of them. 106 anesthesiology reanimation specialists and resident physicians working in Istanbul and Malatya included in the study. The results of the survey consisted of 31 questions were obtained by collecting data via electronic data form on the web. Statistical analysis was used. In our study, the presence of oxygen supply, aspirator and probes in the areas of anesthesia outside the operating room, the presence of light source is sufficient, the most commonly used respiratory parameters of the monitoring methods and cardiovascular monitoring was followed. In these areas it was seen that 94% of the emergency trolleys were found and in the emergency boxes it was seen that the drugs used for cardiac arrhythmia and arrest treatment were usually found. There was a 40% defibrillator and a 60% support team for emergency situations and 56% of the system that could communicate for assistance. 74% of the recovery unit and 37% of the waste gas system were found outside the operating room. We believe that monitoring, compliance of standard infrastructure and equipment are effective to prevent complications in anesthesia outside the operating room applications.
Key words: Anesthesia outside the operating room, survey, safe anesthesia
