Enhanced recovery pathways have quickly become part of the standard of care for patients undergoing elective surgery, especially in North America and Europe. One of the central tenets of this multidis...
Patients with narcolepsy may be at increased perioperative risk due to the interactions among anesthesia, narcolepsy, and narcolepsy medications. This study sought to determine the perioperative exper...
Surgical management of patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) poses a unique challenge to orthopaedic surgeons due to increased operative and perioperative risk. Studies evaluating perioperative comp...
Elevated Presepsin Is Associated With Perioperative Major Adverse Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Complications in Elevated-Risk Patients Undergoing Noncardiac Surgery: The Leukocytes and Cardiovascular Perioperative Events Study.
Perioperative major adverse cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events (MACCEs) are incompletely understood, and risk prediction is imprecise. Atherogenic leukocytes are crucial in cardiovascular event...
A well-controlled pain is one of the most important targets of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols. Recent studies questioned the role of TEA (thoracic epidural analgesia) in support of l...
There is accumulating evidence that inappropriate analgesia is asssociated with increasing risk of perioperative complications. The aim of the study is to compare intraoperative analgesia ...
The investigators propose to compare the effect of combined epidural general anesthesia-analgesia versus only general anesthesia-analgesia on the immune function and inflammatory response ...
The prevention of perioperative atrial fibrillation has the potential to reduce mortality, stroke, and hospital stays in patients undergoing thoracic surgery. Data from cardiac surgery pat...
Observational cohort study examining the perioperative course of copeptin in patients undergoing elevated-risk surgery.
Patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery frequently experience perioperative cardiac complications that may be due to excess inflammatory reactions. Lipid lowering drugs called HMG-CoA redu...
Surgery performed on the external, middle, or internal ear.
An approach of practicing medicine with the goal to improve and evaluate patient care. It requires the judicious integration of best research evidence with the patient's values to make decisions about medical care. This method is to help physicians make proper diagnosis, devise best testing plan, choose best treatment and methods of disease prevention, as well as develop guidelines for large groups of patients with the same disease. (from JAMA 296 (9), 2006)
Nursing care of the surgical patient before, during, and after surgery.
Interventions to provide care prior to, during, and immediately after surgery.
A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of FENTANYL. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
