Product Usage: The McKesson Anesthesia Care system is a computer based system which collects, processes,and records data both through manual entry and from monitors which themselves are attached to patients, such as in the operating room environment. The system provides clinical decision support by communicating potential Adverse Drug Event alerts proactively during the pre-anesthesia evaluation and at the point-of-care. The system is generally indicated in the anesthetizing environment when the anesthesia provider decides to perform a patient assessment, to generate a paper and/or electronic record of the administration of anesthesia to a patient, and to document care.
