Anaesthesia is a vital component of basic health care and merits an appropriate
share of available resources. Monitoring is essential in anaesthetic practice to
safeguard quality and to prevent untoward incidents.
Developed nations have their
own specific standards of monitoring The Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists (ISA),
taking guidelines from the WFSA and subsequent to wider deliberations in different
forums, promulgate monitoring standards for anaesthesia with immediate effect. These
standards are applicable for Anaesthetic service in any part of the Indian Union
in any sector.
The ISA authorise these standards as National Monitoring Standards.
Standards are readout as :
