OMS Quality Outcomes Registry

Dental Anesthesia Incident Report System (DAIRS)

An important component of the 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 reports are maintained as privileged within the OMSQOR confidential module.  All reports to DAIRS are maintained as privileged and confidential within the DAIRS module of the OMSQOR registry system.  Reported cases may be selected for educational presentation, but will not include any identifiable patient or provider information.
