Use of the World Health Organization Checklist-Swedish Health Care Professionals' Experience: A Mixed-Method Study.
CONCLUSIONS: The health care professionals had difficulties using the WHO checklist in the Swedish health care system. More research is needed to determine why specific items are overlooked and whether these items could form the basis of the further elaboration of a modified checklist. An increased understanding of why the checklist is important, as well as updated knowledge on the content could produce greater compliance and thereby increase patient safety.

Video Glasses Reduce Preoperative Anxiety Compared With Portable Multimedia Player in Children: A Randomized Controlled Trial
Preoperative anxiety in children is challenging for anesthesia providers and nurses. The use of video glasses (VG), an immersive head mount display, helps conceal the unfamiliar operating room environment from the patient's visual field. The aim of this study was to determine the anxiolytic effect of VG compared with that of a portable multimedia player (PMP) during the preoperative period in children.

Anesthetic Management of Elderly Patients With Down Syndrome: A Case Report.
In this report, we described the anesthetic management of a 50-year-old woman with Down syndrome undergoing major cervical spine surgery. Components of the anesthetic that we thought would be difficult such as intravenous line placement and endotracheal intubation were accomplished without difficulty. Despite our best efforts, our patient nevertheless experienced both emergence delirium and postoperative vomiting. We advocate that physicians, advanced practice providers, and registered nurses be aware of the unique perianesthesia needs of older patients with Down syndrome.

Implications of a Retrospective Study on Weight-Based Risk for Post-Tonsillectomy Pain in Children.
CONCLUSIONS: OB and OW children did experience risk for prolonged PTP, averaging sustained pain for approximately twice as long as other children. The increased risk for prolonged PTP in OB and OW children occurred despite well-managed early PTP with rates that matched those of their peers. No weight-based risk for early PTP was observed. Further research is needed in the area of PTP management in OB and OW children. PMID: 31959507 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Journal of Perianesthesia Nursing)

Effects of Nonpharmacologic Distraction Methods on Children's Postoperative Pain-A Nonmatched Case-Control Study.
Abstract PURPOSE: To investigate whether nonpharmacologic distraction as a supplement to conventional pain management can reduce children's assessment of pain in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU), and if parental assessment is a reliable proxy in assessing children's postoperative pain. DESIGN: A nonmatched case-control study. METHODS: The sample included 241 children aged 2 to 7 years assigned to one of five intervention groups or a control group. Children's and parents' assessments of pain were registered on arrival to PACU and repeated after 15, 30, and 45 minutes using the Wong-Baker FACE...

Perioperative Considerations for Patients With Major Depressive Disorder Undergoing Surgery
In the United States, approximately 15% of adults suffer from major depressive disorder (MDD), which results in an annual cost of over $200 billion per year. In the perioperative setting, MDD is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. The exact causes of the increase in adverse outcomes are unknown. Major depression affects virtually all major systems in the human body, and most antidepressants affect dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin levels or alter their target receptors. Unfortunately, anesthesia and medications used in the perioperative period affect the same neurotransmitters. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Perianesthesia Implications and Considerations for Drug-Induced QT Interval Prolongation
Prolongation of the QT interval can predispose patients to fatal arrhythmias such as torsade de pointes. While arrhythmias can occur spontaneously in patients with a genetic predisposition, drugs such as ondansetron and droperidol, which are frequently used in the perioperative period, have been implicated in the prolongation of the QT interval. As the list of medications that cause QT prolongation grows, anesthesia providers and perioperative nurses must be informed regarding the importance of the QT interval.
