Summary of amendments

The inclusion criteria have been revised in the light of queries from LCs - thank you.

  • The inclusion criteria have been expanded to incorporate patients undergoing interventional procedures under regional anaesthesia and managed anaesthesia care (monitoring by the anaesthetist), as well as sedation and general anaesthesia. This change applies across NAP6 and affects both the Core Project (case reports) and the Activity/Allergen Survey. Please see pages 2 and 3.

  • We have clarified which cases from HDU/ICU/ED should be included. Please see page 3.

  • We have amended the table to emphasise that only Grade 3, 4 and 5 cases in which anaphylaxis is suspected should be reported. Please see page 3.

We hope this makes things clearer for all.
