The Quality and Safety Committee of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesia (SPA) developed a set of critical-event checklists designed to support clinician responses to pediatric perioperative life-threatening critical events. These checklists are free and have been translated into multiple languages. They serve as (1) a repository of the latest evidence-based and expert opinion-based information to guide response and management of critical events, (2) as a source of just-in-time information during critical events, and (3) as a method to facilitate a shared understanding of required actions among team members during a critical event.
