Abstract

The paper examines the different perceptions of risk associated with anesthesia systems from the viewpoint of the product manufacturer and the caregiver. Only little research has been done with regard to the impact of perception of risk on patient safety in anesthesia. The role of the manufacturer in mitigating the perception of risk will be central to the work. Risk will be examined as the probability of negative occurrences based on the Medical Device Reportable (MDR) events and how the caregiver perceives and manages these risks when delivering anesthesia. Analysis of the manufacturer's public Medical Device Reportable (MDR) events data will be performed in the US market and will represent the actual risk achieved; the bibliographic review will provide a perspective on how the risk is perceived and managed by the caregiver when delivering anesthesia. The goal of the paper is highlighting how the role of the manufacturers can have an impact on the reduction of perception of risk, increasing patient safety.
