A Practical Approach to Acute Postoperative Pain Management in Chronic Pain Patients
In the United States, more than 100 million people suffer from chronic pain. Among patients presenting for surgery, about one in four have chronic pain. Acute perioperative pain management in this population is challenging because many patients with chronic pain require long-term opioids for the management of this pain, which may result in tolerance, physical dependence, addiction, and opioid-induced hyperalgesia. These challenges are compounded by the ongoing opioid epidemic that has resulted in calls for a reduction in opioid use, with a concurrent increase in the number of patients with chronic opioid exposure presentin...

Nurse Anesthetists' and Operating Theater Nurses' Experiences with Inadvertent Hypothermia in Clinical Perioperative Nursing Care.
CONCLUSIONS: Complications caused by inadvertent hypothermia in surgical patients can lead to unnecessary suffering and prolong the hospital stay. The surgical team's cooperation and responsibility are linked to routine nursing interventions. These depend on the nurses' knowledge and experience as well as their clinical and subjective assessment of the patient's physical condition and the surgical techniques used.

Inhaled Anesthetic Agents
General anesthesia refers to a drug-induced loss of consciousness during which patients are not arousable, even by painful stimuli and often have impaired ventilatory function.1 Inhaled anesthetic gases can be administered to impart general anesthesia and are often administered adjunctively with intravenous sedatives (eg, propofol, fentanyl, midazolam) to maintain appropriate depths of anesthesia throughout the surgical case.2 Inhaled anesthetic agents include isoflurane, sevoflurane, desflurane, and nitrous oxide (N2O).

Emergence Delirium in Elderly Patients as a Potential Predictor of Subsequent Postoperative Delirium: A Descriptive Correlational Study.
This study aimed to investigate the incidence of emergence delirium (ED) in elderly patients under general anesthesia and to determine the correlation between ED and delirium at five subsequent postoperative days. DESIGN: This research is a descriptive correlational study. METHODS: A total of 168 aged patients undergoing elective general anesthesia were recruited from a comprehensive tertiary teaching hospital with 2,400 beds in Southern China from April 2018 to September 2018. The Nursing Delirium Screening Scale was used to assess delirium at 30 and 60 minutes after extubation or on discharge from the post...

Assessment of the Quality of Nursing Care of Postoperative Pain in Patients Undergoing Vascular Procedures.
CONCLUSIONS: The overall level of quality of nursing care in terms of postoperative pain management as reported by patients after vascular procedures was not fully satisfying, and nursing care should improve. This indicates the need to educate nurses in postoperative pain management, its monitoring and prophylaxis, and communication techniques with patients. Our study indicates that gender, place of residence, education level, and satisfaction with pain management influence the assessment of the quality of care.

Dueling Plagues
As I write this editorial on June 8, 2020, it is hard to know what will be facing the world and the nursing profession by August. Originally, this editorial was going to focus only on COVID-19. Our lives have changed since March when Covid-19 cases began to increase in the U.S. The nursing classes I teach had to immediately move to online learning. As families we learned how to live in isolation and learned the ins and outs of Zoom calls. For some of you, the last couple of months have been even more devastating.

Cardiovascular Collapse During Transurethral Resection of Bladder Tumor: A Case Report.
Abstract Despite innovative modalities, transurethral resection (TUR) procedures are the primary surgical intervention for bladder tumor and enlarged prostate. TUR syndrome, a major complication of TUR procedures, leads to derangement in electrolytes, hemodynamic compromise, and possible cardiac arrest. This case report describes cardiovascular collapse in a 60-year-old male during TUR of a bladder tumor under general anesthesia. The patient developed hypoxia, which progressed to cardiovascular collapse. Electrolyte analysis revealed acute hyponatremia. The patient was resuscitated successfully, transferred to int...

Patient Handover in the PACU: When Less Can Be More
In the operating setting, my colleagues and I were often surprised to see that medical and nursing personnel of the anesthesiology department perceived the handover process of postoperative patients to be rather trivial. Both seemed to share the opinion that, because most patients did not stay in Phase I postanesthesia care unit (PACU) for more than just a few hours, and PACU nurses observed them to detect and prevent specific complications related to anesthesia or surgery, there was no need for nurses to be informed about each patient's complete medical history and intraoperative management.

Role of anesthesia nurses in the treatment and management of patients with COVID-19
As the backbone for the treatment of patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), nurses have been actively playing key roles in cabin hospitals, isolation wards, and intensive care units (ICUs) for critical cases. Anesthesia nurses have their own professional specialties, such as airway management, the use and maintenance of life support equipment, including ventilators, and the use of high-flow oxygen equipment. With rich experience in emergency responses and nursing, anesthesia nurses, along with emergency nurses and critical care nurses, play important roles during the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
