Context Non-technical skills are the cognitive and affective behaviours that underpin clinical practice in surgery. The purpose of this study was to explore the factors that affect how scrub practitioners use non-technical skills during surgery and their behavioural responses to those factors. Methods Eight scrub practitioners participated in a qualitative semi-structured interview study. Results Five major categories were found to affect scrub practitioner non-technical skills. These categories were democratises surgery, learns from experiences, comprehends situations, comprehends behaviours and insidious threats...

Weaning of mechanical ventilation occurs in intensive care units by nurses, which stimulates the prospect of nurse-led extubation extending into the PACU environment for improved patient outcomes and reduced demand of hospital resources. Nurse-led patient extubation in the PACU, would involve specially trained nurses weaning mechanical ventilation via an established protocol for a specific patient group, prior to the patient being extubated by an anaesthetist or intensivist.

With increasing experience, more complex patients are undergoing robotic surgery but the patient safety during these procedures remains paramount. Being a relatively recent technique of minimal access surgery, the safety and feasibility of robotic surgery is still under scrutiny. We recently performed two robotic procedures in patients who have permanent cardiac pacemaker. We believe this is the first published report through which it is shared and discussed, the preoperative and intra-operative management for these patients along with the importance of WHO checklist for safely performing robotic procedures...

Patients should be at the heart of everything we do. The aim should always be to achieve healthcare outcomes by involving patients fully in their own care, with decisions made in partnership with clinicians, rather than by clinicians alone: 'no decision about me, without me' (DH 2012). This article details a plan of care for an 18 year old male patient with a moderate level of learning disability who was scheduled for a tonsillectomy at a local NHS trust hospital. It focuses on the management of the patient's anxiety, nausea and pain...

Inadvertent perioperative hypothermia (IPH) is a common problem associated with perioperative patients which can have significant consequences for them during surgery and in the immediate postoperative period. Recognising and managing IPH remains an important aspect of perioperative nursing and is a significant factor in maintaining patient safety, achieving positive surgical outcomes and patient satisfaction. A nurse-led clinical audit was undertaken in the operating theatre department of a major teaching hospital in Ireland to establish the incidence and management of IPH in the department...

The combination of promethazine and opioids is known to have an opioid-sparing effect, thereby facilitating a reduction in total patient opioid consumption. In recent years, this practice has fallen out of favor in many healthcare facilities, except primarily in the post anesthesia care unit (PACU). The goal of this study was to highlight the potential of promethazine as a direct or indirect adjuvant medication in acute pain management. The present investigation was undertaken with a case series of adult female patients who underwent open total abdominal hysterectomies...

Operating theatres are dynamic environments that require multi professional team interactions. Effective team working is essential for efficient delivery of safe patient care. A fire in the operating theatre is a rare but potentially life threatening event for both patients and staff. A rapid and cohesive response from theatre and allied staff including porters, fire safety officer etc is paramount. We delivered a training session that utilised in situ simulation (simulation in workplace). After conducting needs analysis, learning objectives were agreed...

In England over six million day case surgical procedures are performed each year. Many of these patients have an allergy and are given a red armband to notify staff of this. This audit compared the use of red armbands to indicate allergy at two institutions undertaking day case surgery. The presence of wristbands, the allergies recorded on them and the correlation to allergies documented in the patient notes were analysed.

Daniel Morgan
The legal and ethical issues surrounding the care of children and young people in the perioperative setting are often vague and an anaesthetic practitioner could find themselves inadequately prepared for any issues that may arise. This paper details the case of an adolescent who withdrew her consent to surgery whilst in the anaesthetic room. It raises questions about Gillick Competency and whether the use of restraint is ever justified.

Hana Alawy, Renee A Paxton, Christopher A Giuliano
The purpose of this study was to compare the level of pain control achieved with 8 versus 10 minute lockout intervals in adult patients who received patient controlled analgesia (PCA) within 24 hours of surgery. There was no difference in pain in the first 72 hours between the 8 minute and 10 minutes group. Additionally, there was no difference in time to first PCA regimen change or a composite outcome of adverse events.
