Thread: perioperative anaphylaxis is a crime scene (analogy I give to patients).
Imagine a serious crime scene. Usually the person (drug) closest to the scene of the crime will be responsible (eg NMBA) but stimes it will be the person furthererest away who did it (eg Chlorhex).
Under cross examination some will deny being involved even though they are responsible (eg Teicoplanin). Some will falsely confess even though it wasn’t them (eg Atracurium). And some will usually own up (eg Co-Amoxiclav).
I am like a detective & have to figure out who (aka which drug) is telling the truth & which isn’t. That is why I need a full description from the policeman (the anaesthetist) who was there at the time about what went on (AAGBI form/chart).
