Preoperative Risk Assessment to Guide Prophylaxis and Reduce the Incidence of Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting.
This article describes the implementation of a postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) risk prediction and prophylaxis protocol. DESIGN: This is a retrospective pre/post implementation quality improvement project. METHODS: This project used chart reviews to assess the impact of the implemented PONV assessment and prophylaxis in a sample population of adult females undergoing gynecologic surgical procedures. FINDINGS: The mean number of prophylactic antiemetics administered significantly increased during the postimplementation period from 3.64 (SD, 0.878) in the preimplementation period to 4.07 (SD, 1.021) i...

Evidence-Based Practice in Perianesthesia Nursing: Application of the American Geriatrics Society Clinical Practice Guideline for Postoperative Delirium in Older Adults.
Abstract Delirium is a pervasive and dangerous syndrome for older adults in the perianesthesia setting, occurring in up to 60% of surgical cases. The American Geriatrics Society performed a systematic review to develop recommendations for the prevention and management of postoperative delirium in older adults. The recommendations emphasize nonpharmacologic interventions with a strong focus on reducing the use of psychoactive medication. Perianesthesia nurses can serve as leaders in translating these recommendations into evidence-based practice at the bedside for older adults. PMID: 29784254 [PubMed - in proce...

Severe Obesity and Sleep-Disordered Breathing as Risk Factors for Emergence Agitation in Pediatric Ambulatory Surgery.
Abstract PURPOSE: Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) may be a critical risk factor for emergence agitation (EA). We hypothesized that SDB diagnosis is a predictor of EA in children after general anesthesia for ambulatory surgery. DESIGN: Prospective, observational, cohort study. METHODS: Children aged 4 to 17 years were assessed for the occurrence of EA. Differences in probability of EA were assessed using multivariable logistic regression analyses. FINDINGS: Of 1,076 children, 66 (6.1%) had EA. Compared with those without EA, children with EA were younger (P

Perspectives From Home Care for Guiding Patients and Families to a Successful Transition Home After Same-Day Surgery
MANY PATIENTS TODAY go through surgical procedures in a 1  day/same-day/ambulatory surgery setting. The shift from inpatient care to caring for patients in their own homes after discharge places countless demands on patients and their families during recovery. Patients and families often mistake same-day surgery for same-day recovery and underestimate nee ds they may have upon discharge. In a sample of patients undergoing joint procedures, approximately 38% were discharged directly to home care postprocedure and more than 50% went to some type of facility before being discharged to home care.

Research can help solve some of our biggest problems, regardless of their domain, for example, personal, professional, or sociopolitical. In this period of global attention to the #MeToo Movement, female empowerment stands at the precipice of revolutionary change.

A team of Chinese researchers gives voice to clinical nurses who endure adverse consequences of workplace violence. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Caring for the Patient Who Uses Cannabinoids
CANNABIS USE IS permitted in many states across the United States, while simultaneously being the most widely used illicit drug.1 With the increased use of Cannabis for both recreational and therapeutic indications, the perianesthesia nurse should be aware of how the drug works and the implications for patient assessment, monitoring, and health teaching. Screening for Cannabis use can help anticipate unpredictable responses to analgesics and other medications. In all phases of perianesthesia care, we can anticipate caring for patients who use cannabinoids more frequently. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Caring for the Most Vulnerable: The Social Determinants of Health
THIS ISSUE FOCUSES on the care of our most extreme of ages: the very young and the very old. Each of these populations presents unique challenges across the surgical continuum, from pre-surgical assessment and planning to discharge. We have always recognized that children are not, nor should they be treated as small adults. We are also rapidly realizing that the elderly should not be “cared for as usual,” but in fact require extensive preoperative assessment and ongoing tailored interventions across the surgical continuum in an effort to ensure that, first and foremost, the scheduled surgery is indeed necessary...

Postoperative Pain Management Among Native and Non-native Israeli Citizens-Data From the European PAIN-OUT Registry.
CONCLUSIONS: In this study, immigration status was not a predictor of inferior postoperative analgesia. In contrast, non-natives benefited more from analgesic care. We suggest this stems from differing patient expectations and attitudes toward pain management between the groups, with higher expectations for analgesia on the part of native patients accounting for these observations.
