Help from Anaesthesia

The senior anaesthetic trainee carries bleep 1220, the 1113 holder should liaise with them regularly.  This is particularly important if you are called out of the ICU for prolonged periods, e.g. attending a trauma call. You may need one of the anaesthetic trainees to stay with a patient in ED whilst you return to the ICU

The anaesthetic department should take over the patient as soon as it has been decided that they are being transferred to theatre or interventional radiology (IR) – ICU trainees are NOT to stay with patients during a procedure, though may help with the transfer to theatres or IR if they are available to do so.
