Dental Anesthesia Incident Reporting System (DAIRS)

An important component of OMSQOR® is the Dental Anesthesia Incident Reporting System, known as DAIRS.

DAIRS is an anonymous self-reporting system used to collect and analyze anesthesia incidents in order to improve the quality of dental anesthesia care. All dental anesthesia providers are encouraged to report any unintended event related to the delivery of anesthesia for a dental patient. Some examples of anesthesia incidents to be reported may include:

  • Laryngospasm
  • Cardiac event
  • Equipment failure
  • Drug interaction
  • Serious incidents that cause permanent harm

Reporting is anonymous, and all DAIRS data are maintained as privileged within a secure, HIPAA-compliant database. Reported cases may be selected for educational presentation but will not include any identifiable patient or provider information.

To submit an incident, visit OMSQOR.AAOMS.org/DAIRS.
