OBJECTIVE: To explore whether anesthesiologists’ efficiency can be increased via the use of intelligent equipment, thereby improving the quality of surgical anesthesia.

SUBJECTS AND METHODS: This paper first introduces the intelligent management system and work flow of drugs and consumables in the department of anesthesiology in our hospital, and then compares the time before and after the use of intelligent equipment, the time for anesthesiologists and nurses to manage drugs and consumables, the misdistribution rate of drugs distributed by anesthetic nurses, and the inventory time and accuracy of narcotic drugs.

RESULTS: For the intelligent management with intelligent drug cabinets and logistics robots as the terminal, compared with traditional management, the anesthesiologist saves an average of 24±1 (min) per day in acquisition of drugs and consumables, and the total error rate in drugs and consumables distribution by anesthesia nurses is reduced from 4% to 1%, the inventory time of anesthetic drugs is 12±5 (min) earlier than before, and inventory accuracy has been increased from 94.6% to 98.6%. The anesthesia nurses save an average of 53.1±10 (min) per day from taking medicines to operating anesthesia billing than before.

CONCLUSIONS: The intelligent management of drugs and consumables in the Anesthesiology Department improves management efficiency, ensures medication safety for surgical patients, increases anesthesia management time for anesthesiologists, and improves the quality of surgical anesthesia.
