This paper presents an exploratory study of the appropriation of information systems (AIS) in anaesthesia. Using a grounded theory approach, we identify three key concepts and the basic social process of appropriation to construct a theoretical model that explains why certain systems are chosen, what technologies are considered and how they are appropriated. This study attempts to offer theoretical contributions to the field of anaesthesia and represents the first grounded theory investigation with an IS perspective conducted in this area.
