Utilization of the STOP-Bang Questionnaire as a Standardized Screening Tool for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Veteran Administration Surgical Patients.
CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of patients among the Veteran population with and at risk for OSA is higher than the general population. Utilization of the STOP-Bang questionnaire as a standardized preoperative screening tool in preanesthesia clinics can increase the identification of patients at risk for OSA.

Utilization of the STOP-Bang Questionnaire as a Standardized Screening Tool for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in Veteran Administration Surgical Patients
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects an estimated 20% of the adult surgical population. Veteran patients have many characteristics consistent with OSA, but lack of standardized screening results in decreased detection of patients at risk for OSA. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Perianesthesia Nurses' Survey of Their Knowledge and Practice With Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Anesthesia, sedation, and analgesia can negatively impact adult patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Despite known risks, current evidence, and practice guidelines, insufficient evidence exists that standardization and clinical application of OSA screening tools, problem identification, and perioperative nursing intervention and management strategies are consistently implemented for OSA patients across perianesthesia settings. The purpose of this study was to conduct a knowledge and practice assessment of perianesthesia nurses who care for adult patients with diagnosed or undiagnosed OSA.

Elective Surgery Cancellations During the Time Between Scheduling and Operation
Surgery cancellations cause harm to patients, extra work for preoperative staff, and financial loss for organizations.

Development and Psychometric Exploration of the Anesthesia Surrendering Instrument.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings show that it is possible to measure the concept of surrendering by means of four dimensions as preparation by avoidance, control, preparation by understanding, and acceptance, although the dimensional variance of 43% could be considered weak. The ASI will constitute context-specific patient-reported experience measures for anesthesia, whereas further item refinement and testing of the ASI are necessary to achieve a better variance.

Phase II involved developing targeted solutions to improve throughput. Phase III involved measured project sustainability. FINDINGS: Phase I investigations revealed that patients spent an additional 62 minutes waiting in the PACU after being designated ready for transfer. Five to 16 telephone calls were needed betwee...
