Most operating rooms around the world play music, both during the surgeries and in between cases. We investigated whether music tempo (fast or slow) can affect the operating room preparation time in between surgeries (turnover time) in an ambulatory outpatient surgical centre setting. We compiled two playlists, one with fast upbeat tempo and the other with slow relaxing tempo. Each of the playlists was played throughout the workday in the operating room for one week with the same surgeon and nursing staff. The turnover times for each case were analysed...

AIM: To assess the clinical parameters and compare the stress and pain response between fast-track recovery protocol and conventional treatment in patients undergoing major liver resection. METHODS: Eighty-eight patients suffering from malignant liver tumours were surgically treated from May 2012 to March 2015. After randomisation, they were prospectively divided into two groups: group fast-track patients (n = 46) and group conventional treatment patients (n = 42)...

INTRODUCTION: A surgical site fire within the operating theatres is a continuous risk in modern surgery. When such an event does happen, clinical personnel can feel stunned, because such events are rare, and often happen rapidly. At The Lister Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK, a Fire Risk Assessment Tool and Protocol was developed to reduce such risks. METHOD: Reviewing the scholarly literature and case studies relating to surgical site fires provides information and recommendations to highlight and improve such dangerous incidents from occurring in the future...

PURPOSE: Postoperative cognitive dysfunction is difficult to predict and diagnose, and can have severe consequences in the long term. The purpose of our study was to examine the feasibility of using a computerised test battery, the Dalhousie Computerized Assessment Battery in the perioperative clinic to detect cognitive changes after surgery. METHODS: Fifty patients were recruited for this study. Patients completed the Dalhousie Computerized Assessment Battery and tests of general cognition, mood and pain at baseline and at three months postoperatively...

In certain hospitals, epidural analgesia is restricted to critical care beds. Due to critical care bed strain, it is likely that many patients are unable to avail of epidural analgesia. The aims of the study were to retrospectively review the number of patients admitted to critical care beds for epidural analgesia over a two-year period 2015-16, to determine the duration of epidural analgesia, to identify the average critical care bed occupancy during this period, to get updated information on the implementation of acute pain service in the Republic of Ireland and the availability of ward-based epidural analgesia...

Introduction Surgeons must ensure operative notes are legible and sufficiently detailed, outlined by 21 criteria in Good Surgical Practice guidelines (2014). Our aim was to introduce an electronic operating proforma to improve quality of operation notes. Methods Two audits were performed six months apart, after an education session and introduction of an electronic operating proforma, assessing adherence to the guidelines. Results were compared and analysed using Chi-square and Fisher's exact tests. Results In both audits, notes for 187 operations performed over a two-week period were studied...

Aim The American Society of Anesthesiologists scale is used worldwide for the assessment of the physical status of patients proposed for anaesthesia interventions. This study aims to assess the level of agreement of the last updated American Society of Anesthesiologists classification version, with the introduction of examples for each class, and search for variables that could promote inconsistency. Methods An online questionnaire was sent to anaesthesiology specialists and residents in Portugal, describing 10 fictitious clinical cases...

Defence nurses form the largest registered specialty in the UK defence medical services. Once qualified, defence nurses maintain and develop their nursing and clinical skills in appropriate healthcare settings, and can be deployed in operational environments such as Afghanistan. Workforce planning and staffing establishment levels are defined to meet the needs of British armed forces, allies and, potentially, local populations. Since the workforce is geographically dispersed, deployed or undertaking non-clinical duties, there are constraints on nurses' attempts to maintain basic skills and access continuing professional development...

This is a case study of a 45 year old male patient who underwent an emergency laparotomy procedure. Perioperative risks and associated postoperative outcomes could occur from the complex interaction between the patient's physical health status, the actual surgery performed, anaesthetic procedure and intra/postoperative events. The patient experienced renal compromise and physiological impairment during surgery. This article discusses his assessment and management as well as the various factors which have an impact upon his physiology...
