NAP6 Update - Bulletin 104

NAP6 is a cross-specialty project and the most comprehensive investigation of its subject ever undertaken. NAP6 aims to characterise current patterns in perioperative anaphylaxis, and in its management and investigation.

NAP6 has four phases, which are all discussed in this article:

  • A baseline survey of anaesthetists' experiences and perceptions
  • A baseline survey of UK anaesthetic allergy clinics
  • An allergen exposure survey
  • The main registry of clinical reports

The final report will include incidence and relative-risk metrics and recommendations, as necessary.
