An expert understanding of Anesthesia Crisis Resource Management (ACRM) principles promotes effective and safe management of perioperative crises by the Nurse Anesthesiologist. Both common and uncommon crises may arise at any point during the perioperative period; timely assessment, diagnosis, and management of each event is critical. Effective leadership strategies, cognitive components of dynamic decision making, and team management principles will be explored. A review of core ACRM principles, evidence-based trends in ACRM, and available resources designed to improve the management of OR crises will arm the Nurse Anesthesiologist with the knowledge necessary to provide safe anesthesia care during crisis in any setting.
