The Pediatric Anesthesia Quality Improvement Initiative

Join Wake Up Safe

Wake up Safe is a Quality Improvement Initiative that contains a registry of serious adverse events occurring in pediatric anesthetics. The registry has been established for the purpose of quality improvement, using analysis of adverse events for learning. The initiative is owned by the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia, and supported by the participating institutions and by the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation. Thirty-four major institutions currently participate with a total case load of approximately 500,000 anesthetics per year. Wake up Safe is designated as a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
