Enhancing the Quality of the Anesthesia to Postanesthesia Care Unit Patient Transfer Through Use of an Electronic Medical Record-Based Handoff Tool.

J Perianesth Nurs 2018 Dec 5. Epub 2018 Dec 5.

Purpose: Anesthesia to postanesthesia care unit (PACU) handoffs are often incomplete, imprecise, and highly variable with respect to information transfer, and therefore can jeopardize patient safety. A standardized anesthesia to PACU electronic medical record (EMR)-based patient handoff checklist was implemented and evaluated for its effect on the information transfer.

Design: An observational preimplementation and postimplementation design was used. Read More

Nurse Practitioner-Driven Optimization of Presurgical Testing.

J Perianesth Nurs 2018 Dec 12;33(6):887-894. Epub 2017 Oct 12.

Nurse practitioners play a pivotal role as members of the perioperative team. This article outlines the evolution of presurgical testing from the vantage of generic testing to one that is tailored to the patient's clinical presentation and the type of surgery to be performed, whether it is high, intermediate, or low risk. Emphasis is placed on indicated testing, screening tools to identify patients at risk for perioperative complications, the optimization of patients before undergoing major cancer surgery, and enhanced recovery after surgery.

The Power of Topical Anesthetics and Distraction for Peripheral Intravenous Catheter Placement in the Pediatric Perianesthesia Area.

Authors:
Heather A Martin

J Perianesth Nurs 2018 Dec 9;33(6):880-886. Epub 2017 Oct 9.

Placing a peripheral intravenous catheter is a painful procedure and produces much anxiety for the pediatric patient, as well as for their parents and nursing staff. There is a heightened need for having effective pain control during this process, which will lead to increased cooperation and decreased anxiety for the patient, making the placement of a peripheral intravenous catheter successful. Topical analgesics and distraction are powerful tools that can make inserting a peripheral intravenous catheter easier for the patient, and also easier for a nurse with limited pediatric experience.

Balancing the needs for anticoagulation versus bleeding during the procedure requires clinical reasoning and preparation. In this article, the current guidelines for use of anticoagulants with atrial fibrillation, the relevant pharmacology, and the use of standardized tools to quantify the risks of thrombus or bleeding in the procedures will be discussed.
