2017 RCA - February 2018 - Pediatric Patient Selection for Ambulatory Surgery Centers

Most routine pediatric surgical procedures are considered appropriate for ambulatory surgery. However, certain patient/procedure combinations may not be suitable for freestanding ASCs where prolonged recovery or the frequent need for overnight observation may be encountered. Examples such as the obese child with severe OSA, the very young infant with history of prematurity or the child with moderately severe asthma will be discussed. A workable preoperative screening process including education of surgeons will be presented.

Patient Safety Highlights 2017 - Outpatient Total Knee Arthroplasty: How Do We Get There?

The current fiscal climate of value-based decision-making and shared risks and payment has increased the number of surgical procedures performed in an outpatient setting. For success, it is necessary to implement protocols that improve functional outcomes, enhance recovery and reduce the need for hospitalization. The use of evidence-based clinical pathways improves outcomes and the patient experience. The purpose of this lecture is to examine the perioperative considerations required for performing total knee arthroplasty on an outpatient basis.

Patient Safety Highlights 2017 - Pediatric ASC Challenges

This panel will address three challenging issues that may face anesthesiologists working with children in a free-standing ambulatory surgery center (ASC). Addressed will be an explanation of the new American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American College of Surgeons (ACS) minimal age criteria for scheduling infants at an ASC; the integration of trained nurses in the preoperative evaluation of pediatric patients; and the use of post-anesthesia discharge systems in children.

Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - NORA: Complexity, Safety, Efficiency and Leadership

The last few years have witnessed an exponential growth in providing the so-called Non-Operating Room Anesthesia (NORA) services. This has been due to advances in technologies and minimally invasive procedures being performed in those highly specialized areas. That increase in service was associated with increased complexity of the cases and procedures performed in patients who are deemed otherwise not surgical candidates. This refresher course will address the safety of care in these areas, examples of sources of complexity and challenging cases recommending solutions and management plans. As well as discussing a framework for the efficient organization of anesthesia services and leadership in these locations.

Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - Checklists, Barcodes, Automated Medication Systems, and Prefilled Syringes- Are Our Patients Safer in the Ambulatory Setting?

This session will explore the use of checklists, barcodes, automated dispensing systems and prefilled syringes in the ambulatory setting with regard to patient safety. Using a point-counterpoint format, speakers will argue for and against the effectiveness of checklists in reducing wrong patients, wrong site surgeries, and wrong-sided invasive procedures, the utility of barcodes in the ambulatory setting, evaluate the literature regarding automated medication dispensing systems and review practices to reduce the risk of medication errors in the ambulatory setting.

Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Perioperative Pathways for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Avoiding Complications After Ambulatory Surgery

Screening tools have become more accurate in prediction of postoperative complications based on disease-entity (sleep apnea and comorbidities) and procedure-specific aspects.  Through a review of key elements of preoperative polysomnography and CPAP testing, learners will be able to develop a process for fast-track sleep apnea testing process. The effectiveness of preoperative CPAP on avoiding complications will be reviewed. The effectiveness of opioid sparing techniques, specific anesthetic agents, neuromuscular monitoring and reversal agents will be reviewed.  In summary, the learner will be able to identify the SLEEP APNEA PERIOPERATIVE PATHWAYS that take into account the preoperative screening or polysomnography results as well as the respiratory consequences of intraoperative interventions. Additionally, the clinician will review the limitations and effectiveness of postoperative monitoring and CPAP therapy in reducing complications in sleep apnea patients.

Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Patient Selection For Ambulatory Surgery: Can Any Patient Be an Outpatient?

Appropriate patient selection has been shown to correlate with perioperative outcome after ambulatory surgery. As the complexity of patients and surgical procedures performed in an ambulatory setting increases, it is necessary to determine appropriate patient selection. This lecture will discuss the current literature that allows appropriate patient selection, particularly in high-risk patients with patients with difficult airways, morbid obesity, obstructive sleep apnea, cardiac comorbidities including patients with pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.

Drug Errors in Anesthesia

Administration of potent anesthetic drugs with small intrinsic margins between effective doses and overdose requires constant vigilance. Anesthesiologists are acutely aware of the numerous claims related to drug errors included in the ASA Closed Claims Database and are familiar with the lexicon that classifies mechanisms of drug errors. Therefore, anesthesiologists know that the most common distinct mechanisms of error are substitution, insertion, and incorrect dose. They also must recognize that an incorrect dose is most likely to produce serious or even fatal consequences. Physicians need to regularly review the OR procedures to ensure safe drug use, and be alerted to the change before the drugs are provided and stocked in the OR.
