BACKGROUND: Children with obstructive sleep apnea are at high risk for perioperative airway obstruction. Many "at risk" children may remain unrecognized. The aim of this study is to find a clinically practicable test to identify obstructive sleep apnea in childhood. METHODS: In this pilot study, we prospectively compared four parental questionnaires with the respective findings of subsequent sleep laboratory testing in children. Right before sleep laboratory testing, children's parents answered both the Pediatric Sleep Questionnaire, a subscale of the Sleep Related Breathing Disorder questionnaire (PSQ-SRBD-Subscale), and an eight-item questionnaire derived from it...

Universally recognized goals of preoperative anesthesia assessment are the evaluation of patient's health status to define the entity of the surgical risk, and the anticipation of possible complications while optimizing and planning preventive strategies. Data obtained by Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) and frailty evaluation are of extreme usefulness in surgical risk evaluation in older patients and in the decision about surgery. It is from the team-based discussion of such results that the most appropriate treatment can be individuated, surgery invasiveness and duration critically analyzed and if needed modified, and the best perioperative strategy carefully tailored...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Repeated controversial and alarming statements of the potential dangers of anaesthetic agents on neurological outcomes in children continue to be issued based primarily on preclinical studies. This review assesses the current evidence of laboratory and clinical data and identifies areas of concerns. RECENT FINDINGS: Published animal and laboratory data consistently indicate that prolonged and excessive use of anaesthetic agents can lead to morphological changes and neurocognitive impairment in animals without a clear cut-off age or a superiority of one technique over another...

In some instances, we encounter cases suffered from inflammatory aortic diseases (aortitis) in Japan, some of which are at the active stages with systemic inflammation. Most of them are refractory with some technical difficulties of surgical treatment. The aortic wall, particularly, at the active stage, is too fragile to hold the surgical sutures. Consequently, the suture reinforcement with Teflon felt is required. In the late stage after surgery, false aneurysms on the suture line, that is, suture detachment potentially occur...

Obesity is associated with many chronic diseases and has become a major public health problem all over the world. Although weight loss includes lifestyle modification, psychological and medical treatment, bariatric surgery remains an effective treatment for morbidly obese patients. Due to the lack of multidisciplinary management and long-term nutrition monitoring, some patients are suffering from malnutrition, functional impairment and other issues after bariatric surgery. This consensus is commissioned by the Nutrition and Metabolism Cooperation Group of Chinese Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition and Bariatric Multidisciplinary Team of Peking Union Medical College Hospital...

Gastric cancer has become one of the important public health issues endangering people's health in China. Currently, endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been used as the curative procedure of early gastric cancer without lymph node metastasis. Endoscopic resection has several advantages, including less invasiveness, permitting en bloc, histologically completed resection, accurate pathological diagnosis, lower recurrent rate and rapid recovery. The perioperative period of ESD is the time of a patient's endoscopic operative procedure; more specifically, it includes ward admission, indication, contraindication, preoperative preparation, endoscopic operation, postoperative complications, recovery and the disposal of specimen...

Patients with cardiac morbidities admitted for cardiac surgical procedures require perioperative nurses with a high level of complex nursing skills. Orienting new cardiac team members takes commitment and perseverance in light of variable staffing levels, high-acuity patient populations, an active cardiac surgical schedule, and the unpredictability of scheduling patients undergoing cardiac transplantation. At an academic medical center in Boston, these issues presented opportunities to orient new staff members to the scrub person role, but hampered efforts to provide active learning opportunities in a safe environment...

BACKGROUND: Free tissue transfer has become a safe and reliable means for repairing soft tissue and bony defects of the head and neck region. Although the success rate is high, the incidence of postoperative complications is common. One significant complication is postoperative hematoma formation. However, few published studies have addressed its incidence, etiology, or outcome. We performed a retrospective analysis to investigate this issue. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted of 293 consecutive microvascular free tissue transfers in the head and neck region in a single institute from January 2013 to December 2015...

Surgical stress induces hyperglycemia and gives rise to glucose toxicity, which causes infectious diseases, resulting in unfavorable surgical outcomes. Intensive insulin treatment can control short- and long-term complications in patients with not only diabetes mellitus, but also surgical diabetes; however, it is associated with an increased risk of hypoglycemia. The wearable artificial pancreas was originally developed to control glucose levels in patients with type 1 diabetes, progressing to a device with enhanced stability and safety for these patients...

In 2015, perioperative nursing staff members at a community hospital designed and implemented a tool to help improve communication and performance. Our postprocedure wrap-up tool and its follow-up process have allowed us to achieve improvements in both efficiency and staff member satisfaction. By implementing a process to document problems as they occur and quickly transmit information to the staff members who are best able to correct these issues, we greatly improved our workflow. Furthermore, by inputting information into spreadsheets using problem codes, thereby replacing anecdotal information with hard data, we targeted areas that needed improvement and used that information for budget planning, training, and allocating resources...
