Guidelines for the practice and performance of manipulation under anesthesia

Gordon, R., Cremata, E., & Hawk, C. (2014). Guidelines for the practice and performance of manipulation under anesthesia. Chiropractic & Manual Therapies, 22(1), 7–7.

This guideline was created using an expert consensus process using the Delphi method to determine best practices. 16 experts participated in the consensus process and agreed upon 43 recommendation statements. The guideline presents 43 evidence-informed recommendations about the use of spinal manipulation under anesthesia in the following areas: patient selection, diagnosis, frequency and follow-up procedures, protocols for determining the frequency of the procedure, parameters for determining progress, follow-up therapy, safety, facilities, compensation, and nursing responsibilities.
