Fewer thromboembolic events after implementation of a venous thromboembolism risk stratification tool.

Summary of "Fewer thromboembolic events after implementation of a venous thromboembolism risk stratification tool."

Deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolus are leading preventable causes of death after surgery. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis management guidelines, with evidenced-based recommendations, are available in the literature. However, over 40% of "at-risk" surgical patients fail to receive appropriate VTE prophylaxis. Decision support-based interventions to reduce venous thromboembolic events were explored.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.

Obstruction of a vein or VEINS (embolism) by a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the blood stream.

The process of minimizing risk to an organization by developing systems to identify and analyze potential hazards to prevent accidents, injuries, and other adverse occurrences, and by attempting to handle events and incidents which do occur in such a manner that their effect and cost are minimized. Effective risk management has its greatest benefits in application to insurance in order to avert or minimize financial liability. (From Slee & Slee: Health care terms, 2d ed)

Instruments that generate intermittent forces, uniformed or graduated, to facilitate the emptying of VEINS. These devices are used to reduce limb EDEMA and prevent venous THROMBOEMBOLISM, such as deep vein thrombosis in the legs.

A platelet-specific protein which is released when platelets aggregate. Elevated plasma levels have been reported after deep venous thrombosis, pre-eclampsia, myocardial infarction with mural thrombosis, and myeloproliferative disorders. Measurement of beta-thromboglobulin in biological fluids by radioimmunoassay is used for the diagnosis and assessment of progress of thromboembolic disorders.
