A-ACLS: First Response to Circulatory Crisis in the OR - 2018

Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) was originally developed as an extension of Basic Life Support (BLS) and focused on the resuscitation of individuals found unresponsive in the field. ACLS has been expanded to include immediate care in the emergency department and patients found unresponsive anywhere in the hospital. A-ACLS was created to address the unique aspects of the perioperative/periprocedural setting.  Originally created in 2015, this course has been updated to reflect the changes in the 2017 American Heart Association ACLS Guidelines, and updates to the original A-ACLS guidelines. The course includes multiple scenarios where participants have the opportunity to make "first response" decisions to cardiac situations in the OR.

Journal CME - 2017 May

Ischemic optic neuropathy is the most common form of perioperative visual loss, with highest incidence in cardiac and spinal fusion surgery. To date, potential risk factors have been identified in cardiac surgery by only small, singleinstitution studies. To determine the preoperative risk factors for ischemic optic neuropathy, the authors used the National Inpatient Sample, a database of inpatient discharges for nonfederal hospitals in the United States.

Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Perioperative Pacemaker and Defibrillator Management: What You Need to Know

In North America, over 3 million patients have a cardiac pacemaker and nearly 300,000 have an implanted defibrillator. These devices perform complex heart rhythm management from simple pacing to improving heart failure to terminating ventricular and atrial arrhythmias. More than 1.5% of these patients undergo surgery yearly, and the ability of the physician anesthesiologist to understand device function, device capabilities, and separate true malfunction from normal, but difficult to understand behavior, can help improve overall surgical outcomes.

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.
