Nursing Integrity: A Moral Imperative
CITIZENS IN GENERAL are not morally required to help another in need, or to keep in confidence information they hear about another. Nor are they required to be nonjudgmental about another's character. But nurses are held to that requirement.1 Building trust in the nurse-patient relationship is based on character traits, the nurse's moral compass, intelligence and competency, advocacy, and the faith patients and their families have in nurses and nursing as a profession. The trust placed in nurses is unique and considered to be a sacred entity. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

What Are You?
I had the honor to be asked to present the keynote address at the December nursing convocation at our regional university, Western Carolina University. It was truly a privilege to be asked to address this esteemed group of nursing graduates. The opportunity caused me to pause in the middle of a very busy holiday season to think about my profession and what it means to me both personally and professionally. I thought that I would share some of my reflections in this editorial. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

The Personnel's Sevoflurane Exposure in the Postanesthesia Care Unit Measured by Photoacoustic Gas Monitoring and Hexafluoroisopropanol Biomonitoring.
Abstract PURPOSE: Room ventilation in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) is often poor, although patients exhale anesthetic gases. We investigated the PACU personnel's environmental and biological sevoflurane (SEVO) burden during patient care. DESIGN: Prospective, observational study. METHODS: Air pollution was measured by photoacoustic gas monitoring in the middle of the PACU, above the patient's face, and on the PACU corridor. Urinary SEVO and hexafluoroisopropanol concentrations were determined. FINDINGS: Mean air pollution was 0.34 ± 0.07 ppm in the middle of the ...

Perioperative Care of Children Undergoing Intra-arterial Chemotherapy for Retinoblastoma.
Abstract Retinoblastoma (RB) is a rare cancer of the eye, most commonly seen in children. Intra-arterial chemotherapy for RB is a relatively new treatment modality that has gained increasing popularity worldwide. The principal underlying the intra-arterial approach is delivery of chemotherapeutic agents directly to the site of the tumor. This avoids system toxicities normally associated with higher dose of these drugs. The purpose of this continuing education article was to review the features of RB and its treatment, with a focus on the perioperative management of children undergoing intra-arterial chemotherapy a...

The Use of Aromatherapy in Postoperative Nausea and Vomiting: A Systematic Review.
CONCLUSIONS: Aromatherapy is one modality that should be considered as treatment for PONV in adult surgical patients. More research should be conducted to provide additional support in the use of aromatherapy for PONV. Future research could aim at standardizing a nausea scale that would provide more reliable and valid results in studies that research PONV.

Perianesthesia Nursing Malpractice: Reducing the Risk of Litigation.
Abstract Nursing malpractice claims are escalating, which equates to a higher risk of being named in a lawsuit and possibly defending one's actions in court. The perianesthesia nurse is at particular risk because of patient involvement before, during, and after surgical procedures. To minimize this risk nurses should have a clear understanding of how a malpractice claim proceeds and the common incidents involved. Three perianesthesia case studies are presented that identify potential nursing litigation threats and strategies to reduce those threats.

Effectiveness of a Pre-emptive Preoperative Belladonna and Opium Suppository on Postoperative Urgency and Pain After Ureteroscopy
Postoperative ureteroscopy patients can develop bladder spasms, complaints of pain, and the urgent need to void during emergence from anesthesia. Discomfort leads to patient agitation, resulting in a risk to patient safety. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of a preemptive preoperative belladonna and opium (B + O) suppository on postoperative bladder comfort, narcotic requirements, and length of stay of ureteroscopy patients.

The Power of Topical Anesthetics and Distraction for Peripheral Intravenous Catheter Placement in the Pediatric Perianesthesia Area.
Abstract Placing a peripheral intravenous catheter is a painful procedure and produces much anxiety for the pediatric patient, as well as for their parents and nursing staff. There is a heightened need for having effective pain control during this process, which will lead to increased cooperation and decreased anxiety for the patient, making the placement of a peripheral intravenous catheter successful. Topical analgesics and distraction are powerful tools that can make inserting a peripheral intravenous catheter easier for the patient, and also easier for a nurse with limited pediatric experience. The purpose of ...

Nurse Practitioner-Driven Optimization of Presurgical Testing.
This article outlines the evolution of presurgical testing from the vantage of generic testing to one that is tailored to the patient's clinical presentation and the type of surgery to be performed, whether it is high, intermediate, or low risk. Emphasis is placed on indicated testing, screening tools to identify patients at risk for perioperative complications, the optimization of patients before undergoing major cancer surgery, and enhanced recovery after surgery. The goal was to bring awareness to our colleagues that evidence-based practice defines the present role of the nurse practitioner in this setting and evidence ...

Transforming Perianesthesia Clinical Practice Through Dissemination and Implementation Science
PERIANESTHESIA NURSES (PNS) who seek to base clinical practice on the best available evidence understand the basic principles of evidence-based practice (EBP) and the importance of the scientific rigor. In addition, PNs know how to appraise the type, level, and quality of evidence. This crucial EBP appraisal process is a strategic underpinning to identify the soundest evidence to use and more importantly translate to clinical practice at the bedside. Patient care is ultimately advanced through the adoption of the EBP scientific findings into clinical practice guidelines. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)
