info_outline EBPOM 2019 | EBPOM Prehab trials; WesFit 01/22/2020
EBPOM 2019 | EBPOM Prehab trials; WesFit This piece focuses on the "Wessex Fit-4-Cancer Surgery Trial"; a unique multi-centre, efficacy pragmatic, factorial design, randomised controlled trial, with patient informed development and process evaluation "You wouldn't run a marathon without preparing," why would you want an operation where you don't get ready for a physically stressful event such as surgery? Prehabilitation is an obvious advantage, gathering the data which proves that is essential to perioperative medicine because it means we can show the advantages clearly to both patients and practitioners as well as looking at ways of making the process more efficient. For more on this go here: http://wesfit.org.uk/ Presented by Professor Sandy Jack, PhD, Consultant Clinician Scientist in the Anaesthesia and Critical Care Research Unit at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Southampton and NIHR Southampton Respiratory Biomedical Research Unit and Integrated Physiology and Critical Illness Group, Clinical and Experimental Sciences, Faculty of Medicine, University of Southampton, Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool, University of Southampton and University College London.
info_outline Desiree's Roundtable | Coordinating an Enhanced Recovery Program 01/21/2020
Desiree's Roundtable | Coordinating an Enhanced Recovery Program How important is it to have a dedicated member of your team focused on starting, maintaining and coordinating your enhanced recovery programme? Does an enhanced recovery programme which comes from the grassroots need support early on in the process? How do you find the right people to support you once the process has begun? Also, how do you explain that these changes will actually reduce workload? The conversation moves into managing pain, both the reality of pain and the expectations which can, if handled correctly, help to reduce it. Finally, what are the three key aptitudes that an enhanced recovery coordinator needs? Presented by Desiree Chappell with Korey Springman, Anesthesiologist and Perioperative Medicine Fellow at Duke University and Vicki Morton, Director of Clinical and Quality Outcomes at Providence Anesthesiology Associates and Courtney Fossen, Manager of Surgical Services at US Anesthesia Partners (USAP).

EBPOM 2019 | POETT Controversies Panel discussion Doesn't the decision to delay surgery depend upon the type of cancer? Can you measure complications as an outcome? What's the cause of non cardiac complications that are related to lack of exercise? Can we change the mindset of prehabilitation by explaining that prehabilitation is the start of treatment? How do we convince patients and decision makers that delaying surgery is a good idea? How involved are oncologists in perioperative decisions?

How do we get to an understanding where the entire continuum of care is on the same page as regards pain relief? What's the level of adoption for opioid free anaesthesia? Can re-languaging pain or "re-writing the narrative" help, for example is it better to speak of 'comfort levels' as opposed to pain? What's the latest thinking as regards caffeine as an aid to comfort? Should we be worried about post operative delerium as regards ketamine use? What about gabapentinoids in the elderly? What about Midazolam? What should we send patients home with afterwards?

info_outline Sunday Special | Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership 12/29/2019
Sunday Special | Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership A special edition of TopMedTalk recorded at The Institute of Sport Exercise and Health (ISEH) live from an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) leadership forum. How can cold water adaption help people deal with medical issues? There's evidence to suggest that cold water adaption reduces inflamation, can open water swimming help with issues such as chrohn's disease? On the other hand how important is it to ensure patients do not become cold while in our care? Hypothermia is never good, how important is it to keep patients warm? Keeping patients and their environments warm is discussed, as is pre-warming, going beyond the standard blankets and patient insulation to include active warming and even patients exercising as a method of warming up. Further to this conversation, how do you measure a patient's temperature? How do we drive change in our institutions towards enhanced recovery after surgery? The GIRFT (Getting It Right First Time) project is explained. The Health Foundation is also mentioned. The piece also includes patient communication and the question of 'how much is too much?', when administering a dose of morphine. Also, is there a hierarchy on the pathway of enhanced recovery after surgery? The conversation features Professor Monty Mythen and his two guests; Dr Simeon West, consultant anaethetist at (University College London Hospitals) UCLH who sits on the board at Regional Anaesthesia UK (RAUK) and Mark Harper Consultant Anaesthetist at Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, with a research interest in the prevention of perioperative hypothermia and the use of cold water adaptation for theraputic purposes. There are also attributed questions from the audience.
