Individuals with debilitating facial injuries and deformities have achieved significant improvement of aesthetic form and function after undergoing a face transplantation. The involvement of surgical technologists and perioperative nurses in the care of the recipient and donor plays a critical role in the success of these procedures. There are unique challenges that staff members may be presented with when caring for a donor and recipient undergoing a face transplantation, including less comfort with and knowledge of the surgical procedure and instrumentation, an increased amount of equipment and personnel in the OR, donor and recipient admission and discharge care, and increased shift length...

Since its inception in the early 1990s, technological developments have made minimally invasive surgery the preferred approach for many operative procedures. However, perioperative personnel have had to develop new skills and techniques to manage this technology. The advent of robotic-assisted procedures in the early 2000s added another level of complexity to the perioperative arena. The updated AORN "Guideline for minimally invasive surgery" provides guidance for creating a safe environment for patients undergoing a wide range of procedures in which complex, advanced equipment and techniques are used...

Perioperative team members and patients are frequently exposed to radiation during operative and other invasive procedures. The use of equipment that emits radiation (eg, a fluoroscopy unit) is beneficial for diagnosing and treating patients but carries the risk of harm if team members do not follow radiation safety guidelines. Perioperative team members should implement safety precautions for themselves and their patients when radiation is used. This Back to Basics article addresses the basics of radiation safety and the precautions that perioperative team members should implement in the perioperative setting...

Researchers have described the documentation practices of perioperative nurses as flawed and characterized by subjectivity and poor quality, which is often related to both the documentation tool and the nurses' level of commitment. Studies suggest that documentation of nursing care in the OR places special demands on electronic health records (EHRs). The purpose of this study was to explore how the use of an EHR tailored to perioperative practice affects Danish perioperative nurses' documentation practices...

Do-not-resuscitate (DNR) orders in the perioperative environment must be managed according to national and institutional guidelines. Health care professionals, including perioperative nurses, may be unfamiliar with the guidelines and unsure of their role in reevaluating a DNR order. We conducted a multidisciplinary quality improvement project at a metropolitan community hospital that aimed to improve health care providers' compliance with the institutional policy, nursing involvement in DNR reevaluation, and communication between providers...

Children's declarative memories of medical procedures can influence their responses to subsequent events. No previous study has examined the accuracy of children's declarative memories after surgery. We tested the memory of 34 anesthesia-naïve five- to nine-year-old children undergoing ambulatory surgery for accuracy of contextual details, pain, and fear two weeks postoperatively. Parents were not present during induction, and we did not use sedative premedication. Children had a mean contextual recall accuracy of 64...

Without early diagnosis and treatment, many lives are lost to breast cancer. Increased breast cancer awareness has facilitated research to guide health care providers toward improving patient outcomes. Research in diagnostic and treatment modalities has expanded to focus on improving the quality of life for patients with breast cancer who are living longer than expected. Providers can offer patients with nonpalpable breast lesions new screening techniques and improved treatment options, including radioactive seed localization lumpectomy...
