Sunday Special | The Perioperative Cognition Workshop - Part 3
Release Date: 05/05/2019
Burn out and stress management have been an important theme on TopMedTalk recently, here we have a top medical professional sharing their story in relation to the topic. How do we describe "burn out", are certain words a barrier to discussion? How do we cut through to people who are most likely to suffer from this incredibly dangerous condition? Is the medical profession finally making progress here? Our interview with Sasha Shillcut is here "Sunday Special | Burn out": This piece was originally streamed live from ‘The Society of Cardiovascular Anesthesiologists’ (SCA) annual conference,...info_outline EBPOM Chicago | The Changes that Change Culture - panel discussion
This panel discussion covers essential ground for any institution that is trying to make real and lasting change. What do we need to know? What do our patients need to know? Who is responsible for questions of safety? How important are checklists? What about "patient advocates"? This piece was generously supported by Massimo.com it follows on from this piece here: Presented by Sol Aronson with Mike Ramsey, Chair of the department of Anesthesia and pain management at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas and Board Chair of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation, Lee Fleisher, CMO and...info_outline EBPOM Chicago | Perioperative Medicine - Editor's top picks for 2020
In this piece you can hear the co-editors of the Journal of Perioperative Medicine describing this year's "Editor's Picks"; the best manuscripts, literature and lessons learned in the last year in the space of perioperative medicine. "Functional performance and 30-day postoperative mortality after emergency laparotomy—a retrospective, multi-center, observational cohort study of 1084 patients" is here: There is more information about the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) here: "A randomised trial of non-invasive cardiac output monitoring to guide haemodynamic optimisation in high...info_outline TopMedTalk | Why is maternal mortality so high in the USA?
Why does the US have the highest maternal mortality rate of any developed country? This piece tackles a very controversial issue in healthcare head on, could the problem be due to racism? The chances of a serious issue is "substantially higher if you come from a minority group, in particular if you are African-American". We also cover the issue of postpartum hemorrhage, what are the key signs that a patient is at risk? Furthermore, how are quality care initiatives and standardization of care helping improve the field of obstetrics? Also, what is the latest thinking on home births, are they a...info_outline EBPOM | Malnutrition and functional capacity
This piece is taken from the free papers presentations given at EBPOM 2019. Malnutrition and functional capacity; what is the effect of multimodal prehabilitation? What can the six minute walk test really show us? Does nutritional status predict preoperative change in a six minute walk test in colorectal cancer patients following a prehabilitation programme? Presented by Lauren Richer, Director, Nutritional Services, Keyto, Registered Dietician, Greene Family Medicine Clinic and Montreal General Hospital, Montreal, Quebec.info_outline EBPOM 2020 London: Prediction of Opioid Induced Respiratory Depression on the General Care Floor: Does surveillance monitoring help?
This piece deals with the prediction of opioid induced respiratory depression for our inpatients on hospital wards, could a change in monitoring practices help? The postoperative period seems to be critical, the thirty day period immediately after anesthesia being a key area. 7.7% of postoperative deaths are in this period, according to The Lancet here; What is happening in the post operative period? How do we find out more? Are hospital general care wards the safe haven we expect them to be? What should we monitor and how do we avoid "alarm fatigue"? More on the "PRediction of Opioid-induced...info_outline AANA | Innovators in anesthesia: Anesthesia electronic medical records
"Data is destiny"; this piece looks at way we can unlock it for Anesthetists. The Open-Source Anesthesia Electronic Medical Record (OSAEMR) was developed specifically for Nurse Anesthetists. Its focus is on solo or small-practice nurse anesthetists operating in environments with limited or no network and computing resources other than an iPad. One patient, one nurse anesthetist, and one iPad. It can now be scaled to larger multi-provider practices outside of CRNAs. Hear how this innovation came about. This piece was part of our coverage of The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA)...info_outline EBPOM Chicago | Patient Safety: How do you make the Changes that Change Culture?
Patient safety, as a priority, is assumed to be at the heart of medical practice. Yet still, preventable harm and death occurs in our profession, how do we change this and how do we make the changes we implement last? Can safety and avoidable harm be somehow hardwired into the culture of what we do in a way similar to that of the airline industry? This popular and refreshing talk is presented here after it was a big hit at the Chicago 2020 conference organised by Evidence Based Perioperative Medicine (EBPOM). For more check out Presented by Mike Ramsey, Chair of the Board of Directors of the...info_outline EBPOM Highlight | The Wesfit trial
Patients with physiological and psychological resilliance have a clear advantage in surgery. The Wessex Fit-4-Cancer Surgery Trial (WesFit) is attempting to determine the effects of multi-modal physical and psychological prehabilitation. This piece gives you the detail and ends with a short informative question and answer session. Presented by Samantha Leggett, Study Director, University Hospitals Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.info_outline POCAPALOOZA | London: The International Board of Perioperative Medicine and the Centre for Perioperative Care
"At the moment perioperative care in the UK doesn't really have the profile that I think it needs; now I suspect that COVID-19 has raised it up the agenda" If you enjoyed Monty's explanation regarding the UK's perioperative journey you may find this link interesting: Evidence submitted by the Improving Surgical Outcomes Group (ISOG) (NICE 75): "Now we're here at this Pocapalooza" - POC, standing for Perioperative Care and "apalooza" being an extravagant event. However, as one of our guests suggests, perhaps we should call this one a "CPOC-apalooza!" as a lot of our focus is on The CPOC...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'.
