ACID is a simple simulation based intervention. It is free to download and use for your anaesthetic department to train your own trainees in critical incident management drills. It requires minimal equipment and does not require, in fact we counsel against using, a “high fidelity” mannequin. The ACID course covers the “Novice Anaesthesia Skills and Drills” requirement of the new curriculum. If your department does not offer the ACID course please contact us for advice.
