NAP7: Perioperative Cardiac Arrest

NAP7 Logo

The Seventh National Audit Project (NAP7) of the Royal College of Anaesthetists will examine Perioperative Cardiac Arrest.

The NAP7 Report has been published. Find it here:


A panel comprised of senior clinicians from the RCoA, the National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA), Health Services Research Centre (HSRC), and trainee and lay representatives selected the topic after a highly competitive application process.

The topic has now been ratified by the Clinical Quality & Research Board and College Council and is now formally the focus for NAP7.

NAP7 is now live and will record cases of perioperative cardiac arrest for one year in patients whose anaesthesia care starts between 00:00:00 on 16th June 2021 and 23:59:59 on 15th June 2022.
