The CAIRS system is an anonymous program that can be incorporated into hospital systems to assist anesthesiologists to report, evaluate and receive information regarding anesthetic incidents. The results of the incident analyses may be fed back into the system, allowing the 'loop' to be closed as part of a quality improvement system. The CAIRS committee reviews the program and offers suggestions for improvement, if applicable.
