Situational Awareness in Critical Care: An Aviation Approach to Reduce Error
IN THE EVER-CHANGING and increasingly complex health care environment, managing risk to reduce error remains a priority in practice. Fast paced turbulent work environments that demand task-saturated patient care increase the risk of errors.1 The probability of near misses increases with the complexity of caring for patients with numerous comorbidities. Managing the risk of errors requires a coordinated effort by all members of the perianesthesia nursing staff. Health care teams need to use proven strategies to enhance patient safety.

Validation of the Turkish Version of the Surgical Fear Questionnaire

Machine Learning in Health Care
GO AHEAD. I AM LISTENING. The invitation from one of many digital assistants is deceivingly conscientious and human, especially when they might actually be eavesdropping all the time. One of the most fascinating aspects of technology is our persistent imposition of human values, beliefs, and language onto technological innovations. We build robots to look and sound human, challenge them to chess matches, and give them human names. We teach them to learn to respond to our voices and to reply in ways intended to make us think they are truly human. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Opioid Metabolism and Pharmacogenetics: Clinical Implications
FOR MANY WHO HAVE worked in the ambulatory setting in the past, discharging patients, especially pediatric patients, with a prescription for a codeine product for postoperative pain has been a fairly common practice. The use of codeine, especially in children, had started to decline in recent years as warnings about potential risks started to arise. A dramatic decline in the prescription of codeine products and tramadol may be noted this year since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued its strongest warning in April 2017, requiring changes in the labeling of codeine to treat pain or cough and tramadol to treat pain...

Evolving Perioperative Care Team Collaboration
THE IMPROVEMENT IN SURGICAL SAFETY and  perioperative care outcomes are hot topics in the United States and around the world. Approximately 20 years ago, European colleagues proactively implemented and began researching and demonstrating the positive impact of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols on patient outcomes and rel ated health care expenditures.1 Around 2005, the Royal College of Anaesthetists and British National Health System made a commitment to organizing and implementing a perioperative medicine pathway designed to improve surgical care delivery.

The Value of a Mentor
IT MAY HAVE been some time ago when you were in nursing school, but I would bet that each and every one of you could name at least one instructor who made an impact on you. Ideally the memory was a positive one, which solidified your decision to become a nurse, and for some, the practice setting you ultimately selected for employment. For some, this person may have had a negative impact, and you remember a moment of fear, embarrassment, or shame. But despite this negative interaction you persisted.

What Must Be Said
WHAT MUST BE SAID …what can be said? I struggle with these questions as I attempt to write this editorial on this Sunday afternoon, the 13th of August. Having just returned from the International Academy of Nursing Editors' Annual Conference last weekend, I had every intention of writing a different editorial focus ed on family caregivers, to be recognized in the month of November. My conscious, however, plays on my heart, and I am driven to address another issue…a political issue…an issue that is ugly and hurtful, but in my mind must be addressed.

Military Service Members and Emergence Delirium Screening: An Evidence-Based Practice Project
Emergence delirium (ED) is a postoperative phenomenon characterized by agitation, confusion, and violent physical or verbal behavior that can occur after general anesthesia. Preoperative identification of patients at risk for ED may allow providers to take steps to minimize the incidence or severity of ED. Because no formal tool currently exists, the purpose of this project was to develop and evaluate a screening tool based on available evidence of ED risk factors.

Malignant Hyperthermia: A Review
Malignant hyperthermia is an uncommon, but potentially lethal condition that may be encountered during the perioperative period. There is wide variability in the manner in which malignant hyperthermia may manifest. For a patient to survive a malignant hyperthermia crisis, prompt recognition and treatment is of paramount importance. Perioperative nurses play a pivotal role in the successful management of malignant hyperthermia. The fictitious case study presented in this paper describes the identification, presentation, pathophysiology, and treatment of a general anesthesia patient with fulminant malignant hyperthermia.

Patients' Opinions of OR Nurses and Environments in the Postoperative Period.
CONCLUSIONS: In this study, most patients were not aware that OR nursing played an important role in a postive patient perception of the OR. Most OR nurses did not introduce themselves to patients while providing nursing care, and patients were not aware of who provided this service to them. In light of these findings, it is recommended that nurses introduce themselves to patients in the OR when beginning care of the patient. Moreover, special effort should be made regarding maintenance of normal body temperature of patients in the OR. PMID: 28739063 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Journal of Perianesthesia Nursing)
