I read with interest the article by Ozawa1  regarding his sailing adventure. Ozawa compares the unexpected event during a sail to what can occur while administering anesthesia. This sailing metaphor is a perfect opportunity to put in a plug for the value of using cognitive aids in unexpected critical events. Cog aids won’t teach what you don’t already know, but may remind you to apply it.
