Abstract

50 patients with hip fractures were audited regarding the anaesthetic management. The practice was compared with the standards set by the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland. Anaesthetic management was of a satisfactory standard. Awareness of current guidelines, performance of spinal anaesthesia in the lateral position, use of lower limb nerve blocks and management of post-operative complications needed further improvement.
