PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of a lavender aromatherapy skin patch on anxiety and vital sign variability during the preoperative period in female patients scheduled for breast surgery. DESIGN: This observational pilot study used a one-group, pretest and post-test design. METHODS: Participants received an aromatherapy patch in addition to standard preoperative care. Anxiety levels were assessed with a 10-cm visual analog scale at baseline and then every 15 minutes after patch placement...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of preoperative visitation on preoperative anxiety in patients receiving elective hernia surgery. DESIGN: Quasi-experimental study. METHODS: Seventy patients undergoing hernia surgery were selected and assigned to the experimental group (N = 35) and the control group (N = 35). In the intervention group, the surgical technologist visited the patient in the surgical ward the night before surgery and after transferring the patient to the waiting room in the operating room department...

Yan Chen, Xu Zhang
Only a few cases regarding postobstructive pulmonary edema following laryngospasm in older patients aged more than 60 years have been reported; however, acute pulmonary edema or pulmonary hemorrhage would be more deadly to elderly patients who have cerebrovascular disease than young healthy adults. After review of the literature, we report an unusual case of a 67-year-old man with ischemic cerebrovascular disease, who underwent carotid angioplasty and stenting and experienced severe pulmonary edema and hemorrhage secondary to laryngospasm after general anesthesia with laryngeal mask airway...

PURPOSE: The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has increased around the world. This study evaluates CAM use in surgery patients. DESIGN: Cross-sectional and descriptive study. METHODS: This study was conducted in a university hospital in Turkey between January 1 and June 30, 2016, on volunteer inpatients who were scheduled for surgery because of various complaints. FINDINGS: In this study, 65.9% of the patients used CAMs, 87...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the agreement of temporal artery temperature (Tat) with esophageal temperature (Tes) and oral temperature (Tor), and explore potential factors associated with the level of agreement between the thermometry methods in different clinical settings. DESIGN: A prospective repeated measures (induction, emergence, and postanesthesia care unit) design was used. METHODS: Temperature data were collected for 54 patients receiving general anesthesia...

PURPOSE: Previous studies have examined music therapy (MT) as a potential modality to relieve negative postoperative symptoms such as pain. This randomized control trial examined the use of MT on patient satisfaction in the postanesthesia care unit. DESIGN: Fifty patients undergoing outpatient orthopaedic surgery were enrolled and randomized into two groups, those receiving MT postoperatively and a control group who did not. METHODS: After hospital discharge, subjects were assessed with two validated outcome measurements for overall patient satisfaction, the visual analog satisfaction scale and the Patient Judgment of Hospital Quality survey...

The prevalence of pulmonary hypertension (PH) has risen in adults of all races, genders, and ethnicities. PH is a fatal disease that presents many challenges to the perioperative health care team. Through increased knowledge of PH pathophysiological changes and anesthesia medications' effect on PH, perioperative health care teams can conduct a detailed preoperative evaluation to determine appropriate therapies to administer. This will assist the perioperative health care team in reducing the pulmonary vascular resistance, optimizing the matching of right ventricle and pulmonary circulations, and reduce the incidence of intraoperative and postoperative complications...

PURPOSE: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a breathing disorder found in surgical patients and associated with complications in the postoperative period. The implementation of a preoperative universal screening process using the STOP-BANG questionnaire to identify patients at high risk for OSA provides opportunities for improved management. DESIGN: A pre-post design was used to evaluate screening compliance rates. METHODS: This initiative included staff education, which included the process for evaluating and documenting STOP-BANG scores...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of parental presence on the incidence of emergence delirium (ED) of children in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU). DESIGN: A quasi-experimental pretest and post-test study with nonequivalent and nonsynchronized control groups. METHODS: About 93 children aged 3 to 6 years undergoing general anesthesia for tonsillectomy were divided into two groups: parental presence and absence...

Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a chronic autoimmune neuromuscular disease in which antibodies against the post-nicotinic acetylcholine receptor at the neuromuscular junction develop. Although the exact cause of MG remains unknown, the thymus is a common factor in many cases. Patients with underlying junctional disease, such as MG, have greater anesthesia-related risks because of their known predisposition toward prolonged muscle weakness. Medications given in the perioperative period, such as anesthetic agents, antibiotics, cardiovascular drugs, and corticosteroids, affect neuromuscular transmission that contributes to muscle weakness...
