Und wie geht es Ihnen?
Die bisherigen Schwerpunkte von OrphanAnesthesia liegen in der Erstellung von Handlungsempfehlungen „durch Ärzte für Ärzte“. Aber wie ergeht es Patienten und deren Angehörigen bei Narkosen? Wir glauben, dass wir die Versorgung bei seltenen Erkrankungen nochmals wesentlich verbessern können, wenn wir mehr über Ihre persönlichen Erfahrungen lernen.
Wir haben unter der Adresse: https://www.soscisurvey.de/patientsafetycard-dgai eine Befragung von ca. 5-10 Minuten Dauer vorbereitet, die hierzu Klarheit schaffen wird. Dabei richtet sich der Fragebogen auch an Betroffene, die bislang keine Narkose erhalten mussten.

Starting from April 2016, we offer a new "patient safety card" for all hospitals, patients and support groups dealing with rare diseases.
Patients or doctors can fill-in the specific name of the rare disease.
The card is made to alert the anesthesiologist to problems that might occured during anesthesia of a patient with a rare disease. The card should be given to the anesthesiologist before anesthesia. It should be carried by the holder in case of emergency surgery.
The anesthesiologist will be able to get informed of our OrphanAnesthesia recommendations before anesthesia.
The patient safety card is editable and ready-to print. It can be downloaded at:
