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.

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.

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?

Patient Safety Highlights 2017 - Hand Hygiene, OR Attire, OR Traffic: What is the Data and Can We Make a Difference?

The current prevalence of HCAIs and SSI are major public health concerns. Healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs) increase morbidity and mortality, pain, cost, and duration of stay. Sepsis following surgical injury remains a growing and worrisome problem following both emergent and elective surgery. Anesthesia providers play a central role in several key process measures, including timely and appropriate administration of prophylactic antibiotics and maintenance of core normothermia. Patient contact and healthcare provider attire and hand contact can be important sources of intraoperative bacterial transmission events associated with postoperative infection development. Despite progress in recent years in the surgical management of patients (ie., ERAS programs), postoperative complications are frequent. The use and knowledge of the literature is important for awareness of current findings and implementation of advances in surgical infection and patient well-being.
