FOR PATIENTS

ABOUT ANAESTHESIA

Most Australians will require an anaesthetic at some stage during their life. Some will need it for simple procedures, others will need it for major complex surgery or in an emergency. Some may need anaesthesia many times during their life. The modern specialty of anaesthesia has undergone enormous change since its beginnings.

FOR CLINICIANS

QARC CAN ACCEPT REFERRALS BY FAX, EMAIL, OR MEDICAL OBJECTS

Queensland Anaesthetic Reaction Clinic (QARC) provides expert and evidence-based investigation of adverse drug reactions associated with anaesthesia and the perioperative period, including individualised planning for return to surgery after major anaphylaxis where surgery was abandoned.
