Fifth National Audit Project of the Royal College of Anaesthetists in collaboration with the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland

RCoA and AAGBI launch NAP5 app for iPhone and Android

As a follow-up to the NAP5 report on Accidental Awareness during General Anaesthesia, an app (iNAP5) has been developed as a learning tool to promote further dissemination of the results of NAP5 and to enable improved communication with patients. The project was overseen by Dr Jaideep Pandit, NAP5 Clinical Lead. iNAP5 was written by Dr James Palmer, member of the NAP5 Steering Group, and was developed by Dr JP Lomas, RCoA Council Member, it includes narrative summaries of the findings of the report in an easy to access, intuitive format.

iNAP5's main features are:

  • Executive summary of the report
  • Explanation of the classifications used within the project
  • Incidence broken down by patient group - all the key stats at your fingertips
  • Summary of recommendations and learning points

iNAP5 will be free to download from both Google Play (for Android) and the Apple iOS store from today. Please see the links below

We hope you find the new application useful but we would welcome any feedback. Please send any comments/suggestions to:
