Continuous Analysis of Critical Incidents for 92,136 Postanesthesia Care Unit Patients of a Chinese University Hospital.
CONCLUSIONS: Critical incidents lead to longer length of stay in the PACU. Regular inspection and immediate response for critical incidents in the PACU is essential for the maintenance of the quality of the immediate postoperative care.

Stress Response in the Body
How many times have you heard someone say “There's just not enough hours in the day”? We all have too much to do, are under too much pressure, and are bombarded with too much information. We live in a world in which increasing demands are placed on us every day. These increased demands can lead to increased stress. Sure, everybody exper iences stress from time to time, whether it is from finances, job issues, relationships, illness, or other situations. The important question to consider is “What is all of this stress doing to our bodies”? (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Transgender Care
It is estimated that 3% of the population in the United States is transgender which equals about 1.4 million people. Many experts feel this number is higher. To provide safe and appropriate care for the transgender patient nurses need to be aware of the special circumstances that may surround a transgender patient. Anatomical considerations, risks associated with hormonal therapy and other common practices. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Encouraging and Assisting PeriAnesthesia Certification
My practicum project for my MSN was to develop a program to improve patient safety by assisting staff in obtaining their perianesthesia certification. The literature review showed that units with a higher ratio of certified nurses provided a higher quality of care and produce better patient outcomes including fewer surgical site infections, fewer patient falls, and a decrease in failure to resuscitate rates. Nurses with certification also showed higher job satisfaction and confidence in delivering care to the perianesthesia patient. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Handoff Communication to Optimize Patient Safety and Flow from Pre-op to the OR
Prior to implementation there was inconsistent handoff communication between the two units due to the lack of a standardized process. The Pre-op RN utilized a checklist prior to surgery that was left on the chart for the OR nurse and anesthesiologist to review. There was a disconnect and lack of accountability between the Pre-op RN and OR team because there was not a verbal handoff. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

PACU Extended Stay: Improving Staff, Patient, and Family Satisfaction
High hospital census was leading to post-op patients experiencing delays in progression to an inpatient room. Approximately 50% of our surgical admits were being held after meeting transfer criteria. An average of 14 patients per month required an overnight stay in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU). PACU RNs did not have difficulty ensuring and maintaining quality care, it was the sense of powerlessness to provide a comfortable environment for patients who were awaiting placement that lead to frustration.

Nursing Informatics Specialist: Role in the Perianesthesia Environment
One of the many positive aspects of the nursing profession is the wide range of career options to be explored. Nurses can be found in just about every role from publishing to politics and family practice to pharmaceutical sales. They often bridge their clinical expertise and status as trusted professionals to settings beyond traditional health care agencies. The nursing informatics specialty presents a similarly dynamic and fascinating role for nurses. Nursing informatics has been a recognized specialty for almost 30  years, but has only recently been receiving wider recognition for the value they can bring to the pro...

The Power of the Pilot
A frequent question when leading an evidence-based practice (EBP) initiative is “Should I pilot?” Quite simply, the answer is yes. Logically, once the best evidence has been reviewed and practice recommendations are clear, nurses want to move to implementation. Piloting can seem overwhelming, and a description about the value of piloting in EBP is missing. However, in nursi ng research, piloting is frequently done before a larger study and has many benefits.1 For instance, during a pilot research study, safety and feasibility of an intervention is determined.

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...

A Practical Approach to Acute Postoperative Pain Management in Chronic Pain Patients.
This article aims to summarize practical considerations for acute postoperative pain management in patients with chronic pain conditions. A patient-centered acute pain management plan, including nonopioid analgesics, regional anesthesia, and careful selection of opioid medications, can lead to adequate analgesia and satisfaction with care. Also, a meticulous rotation from one opioid to another may decrease opioid requirement, increase analgesic effectiveness, and improve satisfaction with care.
