A little story about prospective memory. Last week at #HSJPatientSafety I talked a bit about research on prospective memory, in the context of Kathryn Walton's account of her terrifying experience of being accidentally paralysed following a forgotten cannula. 1/
It appeared that there was an intention to remove the cannula, which had the substance in the dead space, but this was forgotten. Research I did in ATC years ago showed prospective memory forgetting to be the dominant kind. dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/4953549/Papeā€¦ 2/
Anyway, awareness of suchlike avails me of little. It might give a small advantage, like using @Wunderlist to record my intentions, but it is far from 100% and most people use lists. It's not always possible though, in everydaylife, much less in the operating theatre. 3/
