It is inevitable that nearly both anesthesiologist and nurse anesthetist take a zero tolerance approach to avoidable safety problems in the provision of anesthesia.

We would like to study the stress upon anesthesia personnel by using Suanprung Stress Test (SST) - a well-documented, psychological stress test, and Siriraj Anesthesia-related Stress Test (SAST) - a new developed open-ended opinion poll, to scrutinize the daily rounds stress and yield the solution to eradicate or alleviate those worries as well as improve both physical and mental health to handle the situation of difficulties.
