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.

Patient Safety Highlights 2017 - Postoperative Respiratory Depression is a Real Risk for Our Patients: What is Our Responsibility as Perioperative Physicians?

This panel will look at the problem of respiratory depression in the postoperative period from three different perspectives. Firstly, the audience will hear from the intensivist, understanding the magnitude of the problem, defining the problem and what it means to the critical care physician as a first responder and in terms of increased admissions to the intensive care unit as a result of these decompensations. Next, the anesthesiologist's perspective which will look at the quality and safety perspective in terms of designing better hospital quality and practice initiatives to improve outcomes for postoperative patients. Finally, the discussion will move to what current literature says and will focus on: How common is this problem from current evidence? Is there a predictability to this problem? How can the perioperative physician take more ownership and responsibility outside of the PACU and the ICU and allow for a safer recovery period in the postsurgical patient population?

Journal CME - 2017 December

Sepsis is a life-threatening syndrome resulting in shock and organ dysfunction stemming from a microbial infection. Sepsis has a mortality of 40% and is implicated in half of all in-hospital deaths. The host immune response to microbial infection is critical, with early-phase sepsis characterized by a hyperinflammatory immune response, whereas the later phase of sepsis is often complicated by suppression. Sepsis has no treatment, and management remains supportive. Stem cells constitute exciting potential therapeutic agents for sepsis. In this review, we examine the rationale for stem cells in sepsis, focusing on mesenchymal stem/stromal cells, which currently demonstrate the greatest therapeutic promise. We examine the preclinical evidence base and evaluate potential mechanisms of action of these cells that are important in the setting of sepsis. We discuss early-phase clinical trials and critically appraise translational barriers to the use of mesenchymal stem/stromal cells in patients with sepsis.

Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - Death By Resuscitation: What Will Go Wrong During CPR and How Can We Prevent It

Anesthesiologists are front-line practitioners which are expected to translate resuscitation guidelines into action during a real event. However, there are links in the hospital chain of survival that remain completely un-addressed by the ACLS. This creates huge pitfalls and oversights which may lead competent professionals to blatant mistakes. Many of these could easily be overcome given correct preparation, focus on the main issues at hand during the event itself, oversight and direction. Recordings from real cases are used to demonstrate many of these issues and tools to prevent such occurrences are suggested.

Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - FAER-Helrich Research Lecture: Harm Prevention in Critical Care: A Transprofessional Journey

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a high-risk environment, with patients susceptible to multiple hospital-acquired conditions or harms. In the past several years, progress has been made in reducing individual harms such as catheter-associated bloodstream infection (CABSI) and ventilator-associated harms (VAH) by focusing intently on the individual harm. Rather than relying on new technologies, these harm reductions have come from improved processes of care and teamwork. At the same time, we have come to recognize the harm to patients in the form of failure to treat patients with respect and dignity, and failure to align the wishes of patients and families with providers. This presentation will discuss the above harms, along with an innovative approach to simultaneously prevent multiple harms in ICU patients, utilizing a trans-professional approach, new technology and engaging patients and families in their own care.

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.
