The Pediatric Anesthesia Quality Improvement Initiative


Wake Up Safe, with the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia as its sponsor, is dedicated to better outcomes for children receiving anesthetic care and to the education of our members in improvement science. Wake Up Safe, through the efforts of its members, collects data on thousands of anesthetic patients each year. Members have access to this data and to monthly conference calls and twice-yearly meetings which promote the dissemination of best practices. Members have used the database to publish numerous papers in peer reviewed journals. Wake Up Safe has been certified by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) as a Patient Safety Organization.

We are an AHRQ designated Patient Safety Organization

Start-up funding in part by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation
