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)

Considering Randomness
Randomness, a noun, describes the lack of a pattern or lack of predictability. But the use of the word “random” as an adjective in “randomized controlled trials” (RCTs) seems to fly in the face of what researchers are trying to accomplish in strictly monitoring the progress of a research study. However, randomness is critical when conducting a study designed to demonstrate the superiority of one treatment over another. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

Local Anesthetic Systemic Toxicity: Reviewing Updates From the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Practice Advisory
THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF REGIONAL ANESTHESIA (ASRA) and Pain Medicine recently published updated guidance on the management of local anesthetic systemic toxicity (LAST).1,2 Organ systems that are primarily disrupted by toxic doses of local anesthetics include the cardiovascular system and central nervous system (CNS). Mild prodromal symptoms may progress to major complications such as seizures, cardiac arrest, or death. Treatment is multifactorial and involves the use of 20% lipid emulsion therapy as the antidote.

ASPAN Legacy Recognition of Esther Watson, BSN, RN, ASPAN Historian
Each nurse impacts nursing practice, patient care, and nurse colleagues in a unique fashion. Individual gifts and talents blend with personality and motivation to help determine how involved an individual nurse will be in the workplace, community, and professional organizations such as the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses (ASPAN). Nurses build their personal legacy step by step, with intent and action. Seeds are planted by their efforts and work, and an imprint is made for the profession.

Delirium: Are We Doing Enough?
Delirium manifests as an acute change in mental status, inattention, disorganized thinking, altered cognition, and perception that fluctuates in nature.1-4 Patients may present with hypoactive, hyperactive, or mixed delirium symptoms. Delirium occurs most commonly in adult patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) and has been shown to result in prolonged ICU and hospital length of stay, extended duration of mechanical ventilation support needs, increased morbidity and mortality, worsened cognitive impairment at discharge, and increased health care costs.

Ending the Silence for Second Victims in Health Care
I was a nurse in the operating room working with a health care provider administering an epidural block. After the procedure the patient developed a spinal hematoma and permanent paralysis. An investigation determined that the patient was taking a new anticoagulant that should have been discontinued days before the procedure. The consents and instructions for the procedure were done in the doctor's office, so the preprocedure screening at our facility did not catch this medication. In addition, the procedure was done before the initiation of checklists. (Source: Journal of PeriAnesthesia Nursing)

A Healthier You for Christmas
Have you thought about what you want for Christmas? Parents have been planning for children, grandparents for grandchildren, or perhaps you have a significant other who will receive a special gift. How about taking time to think about what you would like for Christmas? Instead of a physical gift, think about a healthy lifestyle and the changes it would take to bring that to fruition.

Pediatric Emergence Delirium: A Case Study.
Abstract The pathophysiology of emergence delirium (ED) remains a mystery. Using a case study approach, ED is discussed from a clinical perspective. The case is a 4-year-old male who had myringotomy tube placement while anesthetized with sevoflurane. The negative outcome for this child is presented. The epidemiology of the phenomena is reviewed and definitions are examined. Several methods to assess ED are presented, accompanied by a discussion of the development of assessment tools. Research findings are included that address the possible causes of ED including preoperative anxiety, rapid awakening, pain, and a p...

Risk Factors for Perioperative Hypothermia: A Literature Review.
CONCLUSIONS: It is crucial to prevention that health care providers are able to identify risk factors and implement interventions. However, vigilance in the perioperative period can only enhance patient safety when we know what to look for. More research is needed to identify risk factors of unplanned perioperative hypothermia and effectively maintain normothermia throughout the perioperative period.
