Sunday Special | The Perioperative Cognition Workshop - Part 3
Release Date: 05/05/2019
This piece ploughs into some of the academic papers that have provoked discussion in the perioperative community. We discuss the following papers: Risk factors for opioid-induced respiratory depression in surgical patients: a systematic review and meta-analyses. Increased Postoperative Glucose Variability Is Associated with Adverse Outcomes Following Total Joint Arthroplasty. Effect of A1C and Glucose on Postoperative Mortality in Noncardiac and Cardiac Surgeries. Frailty as a Predictor of Death or New Disability After Surgery: A Prospective Cohort Study. Presented by Desiree Chappell and...info_outline COVID 19 | Roneet Lev, San Diego
This piece took a look at the San Diego front line of the global fight against COVID 19 on March the 30th at the start of the crisis. What unique pressures were there; the large homeless population is a particular challenge, how do psychiatric patients further the conundrum. Also, what about the assumption that patients are likely to be carrying the virus so should all be treated as if that is the case, does that apply here? Presented by Desiree Chappell with Roneet Lev, MD FACEP, Chief Medical Officer, White House Office of National Drug Control Policy Director of Operations, Scripps Mercy...info_outline TopMedTalk | Research and development during COVID and beyond
This piece is a conversation with friends of ours at Medtronic. Now is an interesting and resource-scarce time for everyone in medicine; Medtronic made huge waves here with their support of the Ventilator Training App, today we ask them about where it's at and how things are changing in the world of medical technology. How does product development actually work these days? How important have standards of proof become? Should we celebrate the fact hardware appears to be being pushed toward a similar evidence standard needed to take a new drug to market? How are research and development...info_outline AANA | Outcome criteria associated with residual neuromuscular blockade
"The more I learn about this, the more my eyes are opened to how much opportunity we have to improve in this area" This piece covers the "perennial topic" of whether paralysis is bad for breathing, here with a focus upon outcome criteria associated with residual neuromuscular blockade. It's a piece based in part upon a recent talk at the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists annual conference which was this year held virtually. Presented by Desiree Chappell with her guest Brent Dunsworth, CRNA, DNP, Director of Advanced Practice for the Department of Anesthesiology at Vanderbilt...info_outline EBPOM 2020 London | Extending roles: what is the future?
"Just having more staff doesn't always equate to better care, especially when the staff do not have the skills required." Perioperative medicine has the opportunity to lead the way in advanced practice; the extended role of the practitioner within the perioperative pathway can be done with nurses, allied health professionals or physician associates. As we evolve these roles, we must be mindful and recognise not all services will be the same. How can you tailor your service to your specific needs? How do you construct a business case which provides a better quality of value based care within...info_outline DINGLE 2020 | Covid 19 - ventilation strategies
This vital piece deals with a variety of issues related to COVID-19; what we know and what we know we do not know: - Similarities and differences between COIVD-19 and Aqute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) - The most useful information observed by practitioners at the bedside, conscious of the lack of Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) in this area - The controversy regrading early invasive ventilation versus non-invasive ventilation - What are the aerosolization risks? - Pragmatic patient prioritization - The role of anti-coagulation - The role of continuous positive airwave pressure...info_outline TopMedTalk | Henrik Kehlet and Nick Scott
"It's all about safety and recovery, it's not about speed"; this conversation focuses on enhanced recovery, are we getting it right and where are people getting it wrong? How reliable and well understood is the data behind it? Also, what are the current thoughts on perioperative steroids? How do we refocus and move back to enhanced recovery after surgery rather than "enhanced discharge" after surgery. Presented by Monty Mythen and Desiree Chappell with Sol Aronson, tenured Professor at Duke University, and their guests Henrik Kehlet, a gastrointestinal surgeon and former professor of surgery,...info_outline Dingle Highlight | Enhanced Recovery with Monty and Desiree
TopMedTalk has recently engaged with a large number of new listeners, we are delighted to have you join our family of perioptimists! This piece works as a primer, it explains what lies at the core of the world's favorite perioperative medicine podcast; enhanced recovery. What is it? How do you implement it? What are its core principles? If you've never heard TopMedTalk before but you are a medical practitioner this piece is a great place to start; if you're already onboard it will be a welcome refresher regarding the ideas we all gather around daily. How widespread is enhanced recovery after...info_outline EBPOM Live from London | Australian Perspective on shared decision making
This piece explores perioperative shared decision making from a variety of angles. Where is the latest research? Is it something we can reasonably out source? Does it always play in the favour of the patient or do we as practitioner benefit from this process also? How do we implement it without 'bulldozing' through years of experience? Link to video featuring patient "Doug": Presented by Desiree Chappell and Ross Kerridge, "The Father of Perioperative Medicine", Debra Leung, Anaesthesiologist , Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre, Melbourne, Aisling Fleury, Geriatrician at Logan Hospital, Brisbane,...info_outline EBPOM London 2020 | Prehabilitation Update
2020 was a big year for prehabilitation, the advent of a global pandemic has only increased the importance of this exciting field of medicine. Various questions from EBPOM 2020 attendees were tackled by the panel: Can you use "Timed Up and Go" (TUG) and The Duke Activity Status Index (DASI) to screen out unnecessary cardio-pulminary exercise testing (CPET)? What exactly is prehabilitation and what's its natural scope? How important is nutrition? Is it possible to standardise these areas more? What areas are being significantly worked on in prehabilitation medicine in the UK this year? What...info_outline
This invaluable piece is a chance to attend a workshop which looks at the latest thinking on "perioperative cognition" and 'post-operative cognitive dysfuntion'.
