Smoking Cessation in Surgical Patients: How to Help Your Patients Quit and Why It's Important 2018 

We know that smoking is the leading cause of pulmonary and cardiovascular disease and a risk for poor outcomes in the perioperative period. Anesthesia professionals feel a responsibility to the patient to aid in smoking cessation, but often do not know the best way to initiate this discussion or to provide the best resources. In this module, we will review the health risks of smoking, the risk that are particular to the perioperative period, how to support smoking cessation as a teachable moment and review resources available to all patients. In addition, we will review the current evidence on the safety of e-cigarettes and other alternatives to conventional smoking methods.

As specialists in perioperative medicine, anesthesiologists are well equipped to design and oversee the preoperative patient preparation process; however, the impact of an anesthesiologist-led preoperative evaluation clinic (PEC) on clinical outcomes has yet to be fully elucidated. The authors compared the incidence of in-hospital postoperative mortality in patients who had been evaluated in their institution’s PEC before elective surgery to the incidence in patients who had elective surgery without being seen in the PEC.

Glucocorticoids are increasingly used perioperatively, principally to prevent nausea and vomiting. Safety concerns focus on the potential for hyperglycemia and increased infection. The authors hypothesized that glucocorticoids predispose to such adverse outcomes in a dose-dependent fashion after elective noncardiac surgery.

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.
