Jennifer L Fencl
Research conducted during the past four decades has demonstrated that surgical smoke generated from the use of energy-generating devices in surgery contains toxic and biohazardous substances that present risks to perioperative team members and patients. Despite the increase in information available, however, perioperative personnel continue to demonstrate a lack of knowledge of these hazards and lack of compliance with recommendations for evacuating smoke during surgical procedures. The new AORN "Guideline for surgical smoke safety" provides guidance on surgical smoke management...

Sterile technique is an essential patient safety principle that reduces the risk of microbial transmission to patients during surgery. The ability to establish and maintain a sterile environment is an important skill for all perioperative team members. Understanding the principles of sterile technique is crucial for anyone entering the perioperative environment. This Back to Basics article reviews sterile technique and the importance of all perioperative team members adhering to aseptic principles.

Patients who undergo orthopedic ambulatory surgery have reported high levels of symptom distress during recovery at home. Content analysis of this qualitative descriptive study identified techniques of symptom management that effectively reduce postoperative symptom distress after orthopedic ambulatory surgery and provided insight into facilitators and barriers to postsurgery self-management. Focus groups consisted of 19 patients and caregivers recruited from a university orthopedic surgery office. The authors identified the common themes as distressing symptoms and consequences of surgery, management of symptoms, and self-management facilitators and barriers...

Karen K Giuliano, Jane Hendricks
Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia is estimated to affect 70% of surgical patients and is associated with adverse clinical outcomes, lengthened hospital stays, and increased costs. To better understand the current level of nursing knowledge on this subject since the release of the "Guideline for prevention of unplanned patient hypothermia," we conducted an e-mail survey of AORN members. The overall response rate was 6.5% (N = 324), and most responding nurses overestimated or underestimated the lower and upper limits for normothermia...

Judith L Clayton
When a urinary catheter is not inserted using proper technique, becomes unclean, or remains in place for too long, microorganisms can travel through the catheter lumen or along the outside of the catheter and infect the bladder or kidneys, resulting in a catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI). Urinary tract infections resulting from catheter use are one of the most common health care-associated infections. The insertion of a urinary catheter is considered to be routine care. Improving practices of placement and removal of urinary catheters requires education aimed at changing the habits of nurses and physicians...

Lasers have been used in the OR for many years and are essential tools in many different types of procedures. However, laser beams that come into contact with unintended targets directly or via reflection can cause injury to patients or personnel or pose other hazards, such as fires. The new AORN "Guideline for safe use of energy-generating devices" provides guidance on the use of all energy-generating devices in the OR. This article focuses on key points of the guideline that address the safe use of lasers...
