Postoperative analgesia and vomiting, with special reference to day-case surgery: a systematic review. (1/662)

BACKGROUND: Day-case surgery is of great value to patients and the health service. It enables many more patients to be treated properly, and faster than before. Newer, less invasive, operative techniques will allow many more procedures to be carried out. There are many elements to successful day-case surgery. Two key components are the effectiveness of the control of pain after the operation, and the effectiveness of measures to minimise postoperative nausea and vomiting. OBJECTIVES: To enable those caring for patients undergoing day-case surgery to make the best choices for their patients and the health service, this review sought the highest quality evidence on: (1) the effectiveness of the control of pain after an operation; (2) the effectiveness of measures to minimise postoperative nausea and vomiting. METHODS: Full details of the search strategy are presented in the report. RESULTS - ANALGESIA: The systematic reviews of the literature explored whether different interventions work and, if they do work, how well they work. A number of conclusions can be drawn. RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INEFFECTIVE INTERVENTIONS: There is good evidence that some interventions are ineffective. They include: (1) transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation in acute postoperative pain; (2) the use of local injections of opioids at sites other than the knee joint; (3) the use of dihydrocodeine, 30 mg, in acute postoperative pain (it is no better than placebo). RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INTERVENTIONS OF DOUBTFUL VALUE: Some interventions may be effective but the size of the effect or the complication of undertaking them confers no measurable benefit over conventional methods. Such interventions include: (1) injecting morphine into the knee joint after surgery: there is a small analgesic benefit which may last for up to 24 hours but there is no clear evidence that the size of the benefit is of any clinical value; (2) manoeuvres to try and anticipate pain by using pre-emptive analgesia; these are no more effective than standard methods; (3) administering non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) by injection or per rectum in patients who can swallow; this appears to be no more effective than giving NSAIDs by mouth and, indeed, may do more harm than good; (4) administering codeine in single doses; this has poor analgesic efficacy. RESULTS-ANALGESIA, INTERVENTIONS OF PROVEN VALUE: These include a number of oral analgesics including (at standard doses): (1) dextropropoxyphene; (2) tramadol; (3) paracetamol; (4) ibuprofen; (5) diclofenac. Diclofenac and ibuprofen at standard doses give analgesia equivalent to that obtained with 10 mg of intramuscular morphine. Each will provide at least 50% pain relief from a single oral dose in patients with moderate or severe postoperative pain. Paracetamol and codeine combinations also appear to be highly effective, although there is little information on the standard doses used in the UK. The relative effectiveness of these analgesics is compared in an effectiveness 'ladder' which can inform prescribers making choices for individual patients, or planning day-case surgery. Dose-response relationships show that higher doses of ibuprofen may be particularly effective. Topical NSAIDs (applied to the skin) are effective in minor injuries and chronic pain but there is no obvious role for them in day-case surgery. RESULTS-POSTOPERATIVE NAUSEA AND VOMITING: The proportion of patients who may feel nauseated or vomit after surgery is very variable, despite similar operations and anaesthetic techniques. Systematic review can still lead to clear estimations of effectiveness of interventions. Whichever anti-emetic is used, the choice is often between prophylactic use (trying to prevent anyone vomiting) and treating those people who do feel nauseated or who may vomit. Systematic reviews of a number of different anti-emetics show clearly that none of the anti-emetics is sufficiently effective to be used for prophylaxis. (ABSTRACT TRUNCATE  (+info)

Day surgery; development of a questionnaire for eliciting patients' experiences. (2/662)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a single, short, acceptable, and validated postal questionnaire for assessing patients' experiences of the process and outcome of day surgery. DESIGN: Interviews and review of existing questionnaires; piloting and field testing of draft questionnaires; consistency and validity checks. SETTING: Four hospitals, in Coventry (two), Swindon, and Milton Keynes. PATIENTS: 373 patients undergoing day surgery in 1990. MAIN MEASURES: Postoperative symptoms, complications, health and functional status, general satisfaction, and satisfaction with specific aspects of care. RESULTS: Response rates of 50% were obtained on field testing draft questionnaires preoperatively and one week and one month after surgery. 28% of initial non-responders replied on receiving a postal reminder, regardless of whether or not a duplicate questionnaire was sent; a second reminder had little impact. Many patients who expressed overall satisfaction with their care were nevertheless dissatisfied with some specific aspects. Outcome and satisfaction were related to three aspects of case mix; patient's age, sex, and type of operative procedure. The final questionnaire produced as a result of this work included 28 questions with precoded answers plus opportunities to provide qualitative comments. Several factors (only one, shorter questionnaire to complete, fewer categories of nonresponders, and administration locally) suggested that a response rate of at least 65% (with one postal reminder) could be expected. CONCLUSION: A validated questionnaire for day surgery was developed, which will be used to establish a national comparative database.  (+info)

Day surgery: development of a national comparative audit service. (3/662)

OBJECTIVES: To develop software for hospitals to analyse their own survey data on patients' experiences of day surgery and to create and test the feasibility of a national comparative audit service. DESIGN: Software development and testing; database analysis. SETTING: Eleven general hospitals in England. PATIENTS: 1741 day surgery patients undergoing procedures during 1991-2. MAIN MEASURES: Postoperative symptoms, complications, health and functional status, general satisfaction, and satisfaction with specific aspects of care. RESULTS: Software for data entry and analysis by hospitals was successfully used at the pilot sites. The overall response rate for the 11 hospitals using the questionnaire was 60%, ranging from 33% to 90% depending on the way the survey was managed. Data from all 11 hospitals were included in the national comparative audit database. Hospitals showed little variation in measures of patients' overall satisfaction (around 85%), but significant differences were apparent for specific aspects such as receiving adequate written information before admission (range 50%-89%), provision of adequate parking facilities (14%-92%) and experiencing a significant amount of postoperative pain (8%-42%). The proportion of day case patients undergoing procedures that could have been performed in outpatient departments varied from 0 to 27% between hospitals. Further comparisons of outcome, in particular measures of effectiveness, must await the development of validated case mix adjustment methods. CONCLUSION: Establishing a comparative audit database is feasible but several methodological problems remain to be resolved.  (+info)

Prospective audit comparing ambulatory day surgery with inpatient surgery for treating cataracts. (4/662)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the cost effectiveness and safety of inpatient cataract surgery (with one night in hospital postoperatively) with ambulatory day case surgery under local anaesthesia. DESIGN: Prospective study of patients receiving inpatient (group 1) or day case (group 2) surgery. SETTING: One ophthalmic surgical firm. PATIENTS: 100 patients in each group, excluding those with coexisting ocular conditions, contraindications to local or request for general anaesthesia, ill health, or lack of agreed minimum social care; four patients died during follow up. INTERVENTIONS: Envelope method and implantation of the posterior chamber lens into the capsular sac in both groups. MAIN MEASURES: Perioperative complications, operating and turnover times, visual outcome at three to six days and 10 weeks to six months after operation, patient satisfaction (according to self administered questionnaire) at three to six days, and total costs (1989 salaries) for both groups. RESULTS: Patients in both groups did not differ significantly in age or sex, perioperative complications, visual outcome (6/9 or better in 78 patients in group 1 and 75 in group 2 at one month after operation and 6/12 or better in 92/98 in group 1, 90/98 in group 2 at final follow up), or patient satisfaction. The mean total cost per patient for group 1 patients was 365.99 pounds and for group 2, 221.62 pounds. CONCLUSIONS: Day case surgery for cataract is safe and more cost effective. IMPLICATIONS: Day case surgery should be recommended to increase availability of cataract surgery and thereby improve quality of life for more patients.  (+info)

Same-day surgery ileostomy closure? (5/662)

Loop ileostomy is a common procedure for temporary fecal diversion. Length of stay for ileostomy closure in many series is 3 to 6 days. There is, however, increasing pressure on surgeons to discharge patients as soon as possible. With attention to surgical details and careful perioperative management, it is possible to perform ileostomy closure as a same-day-discharge operation. This technique was used to treat six patients who needed ileostomy closure. All patients were discharged the day after or the day of the surgical intervention. There was no morbidity. Loop ileostomy and same-day ileostomy closure are cost-effective procedures for temporary fecal diversion.  (+info)

Neostigmine with glycopyrrolate does not increase the incidence or severity of postoperative nausea and vomiting in outpatients undergoing gynaecological laparoscopy. (6/662)

We studied 100 healthy women undergoing outpatient gynaecological laparoscopy in a randomized, double-blind and placebo-controlled study to evaluate the effect of neostigmine on postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV). After induction of anaesthesia with propofol, anaesthesia was maintained with sevoflurane and 66% nitrous oxide in oxygen. Mivacurium was used for neuromuscular block. At the end of anaesthesia, neostigmine 2.0 mg and glycopyrrolate 0.4 mg, or saline, was given i.v. The incidence of PONV was evaluated in the postanaesthesia care unit, on the ward and at home. The severity of nausea and vomiting, worst pain, antiemetic and analgesic use, times to urinary voiding and home readiness were recorded. During the first 24 h after operation, 44% of patients in the neostigmine group and 43% in the saline group did not have PONV. We conclude that neostigmine with glycopyrrolate did not increase the occurrence of PONV in this patient group.  (+info)

Impact of new guidelines on physicians' ordering of preoperative tests. (7/662)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the number of preoperative tests ordered for elective ambulatory surgery patients during the 2 years before and the 2 years after the establishment of new hospital testing guidelines. MEASUREMENTS: The patterns of preoperative testing by surgeons and a medical consultant during the 2 years before and the 2 years after the establishment of new guidelines at one orthopedic hospital were reviewed. All tests ordered preoperatively were determined by review of medical records. Preoperative medical histories, physical examinations, and comorbidities were obtained according to a protocol by the medical consultant (author). Perioperative complications were determined by review of intraoperative and postoperative events, which also were recorded according to a protocol. MAIN RESULTS: A total of 640 patients were enrolled, 361 before and 279 after the new guidelines. The mean number of tests decreased from 8.0 before to 5.6 after the new guidelines ( p =.0001) and the percentage decrease for individual tests varied from 23% to 44%. Except for patients with more comorbidity and patients receiving general anesthesia, there were decreases across all patient groups. In multivariate analyses only time of surgery (before or after new guidelines), age, and type of surgery remained statistically significant ( p =.0001 for all comparisons). Despite decreases in surgeons' ordering of tests, the medical consultant did not order more tests after the new guidelines ( p =.60) The majority of patients had no untoward events intraoperatively and postoperatively throughout the study period, with only 6% overall requiring admission to the hospital after surgery, mainly for reasons not related to abnormal tests. Savings from charges totaled $34,000 for the patients in the study. CONCLUSIONS: Although there was variable compliance among physicians, new hospital guidelines were effective in reducing preoperative testing and did not result in increases in untoward perioperative events or in test ordering by the medical consultant.  (+info)

Intranasal midazolam for premedication of children undergoing day-case anaesthesia: comparison of two delivery systems with assessment of intra-observer variability. (8/662)

Midazolam is often used for paediatric premedication. We have compared two methods of administering midazolam intranasally in 44 surgical day-case children allocated randomly to receive midazolam 0.2 mg kg-1 as drops or midazolam 0.1 mg kg-1 from an intranasal spray device. Behaviour was recorded on a four-point scale by the parent, nurse and anaesthetist. Coefficients were obtained representing the change in behaviour score. There was no significant difference in method of administration (coefficient 0.13, P = 0.39). Children were significantly more distressed at the time of premedication and at the time of venous cannulation (coefficients 1.31 and 0.70) than at baseline. There was no significant difference in the assessments between observers. Midazolam by either method was equally effective but acceptability of the premedication was poor in both groups. Intranasal midazolam cannot be recommended as a method for routine premedication of young children.  (+info)

The day case patient is to leave the hospital within hours following surgery; thus special emphasis must be placed on providing adequate pain management throughout the perioperative course as well as following discharge. • Information and active coaching of the patient through the entire perioperative period is of great importance; patient satisfaction is important and efforts should be focused on obtaining adequate pain relief with minimum side effects. • A multi-modal pain management strategy has become the gold standard. Pain management should already have been addressed in preoperative preparation and information. Provide the patient with a prescription in order to have adequate medication at home after return from the procedure or provide take-home medications and information about their use. • The use of local anaesthesia intraoperatively, fast-acting anaesthesia prior to incision and long-acting anaesthesia at skin closure, should be advocated strongly wherever possible; this ...
Day case anaesthesia and office-based anaesthesia should be performed with adequate delivery and monitoring equipment in accordance with national guidelines. • All equipment and monitoring devices should be checked on a regular basis and control of function is mandatory before administration of each anaesthetic. • A simple checklist should be followed before each procedure, ensuring proper function of equipment, control of patient identification and procedure (site of surgery should be marked by the responsible surgeon). • Day case anaesthesia should have the same form of safety and risk management system as in-hospital care. • Control of equipment, preoperative assessment, intraoperative, and postoperative observations should be documented and stored in accordance to regulations. • Ventilation of the operating theatre should be in accordance with national regulations and adjusted in order to minimize the risk for contamination. Scavenging of waste gas should also adhere to national ...
Over the past decade, the percentage of elective surgical procedures performed on a day case basis has increased from 55% to over 70%. The current interest and focus on day surgery is a result of public demand and government-imposed targets.
Septoplasty is being increasingly performed on a day case basis. A good outcome in day case surgery depends on careful patient selection, careful surgery by experienced surgeons and a careful anaesthetic by experienced anaesthetists. The objectives of this study were to look at our results of day case septoplasty, specifically evaluating patients views on this procedure by patient questionnaire and case notes review. Three hundred and twenty five patients were included in this study. Of these 296 patients who underwent day-case septoplasty 25 patients (8.44%) had to stay in overnight. Of these, 16 patients were admitted due to post-operative bleeding (5.4%) and the rest 9 (3.0%) due to anaesthetic related complications. Most of the patients (252, 85.1%) reported symptomatic improvement and were satisfied at the first follow up appointment at 6 weeks. The majority of the patients (78.7%, 233) recommended that septoplasty should be done as day case surgery.. ...

The increasing demand for cataract surgery, combined with limited resources, has created renewed interest in daycase admission. We have audited the results of all daycase and inpatient cataract surgery in a large unit over a six-month period to determine the factors influencing daycase admission and surgical outcome; 34% of cataract patients were admitted as daycases in the study period. Neither distance travelled by the patient nor age appear to influence daycase admission. However, the differing policies of the individual consultant surgeons resulted in a wide variation in the number of operations performed on a daycase basis by each firm. The rate of preoperative complications was unaffected by daycase admission, by the grade of surgeon operating, or by the type of anaesthetic employed. Only 2.1% of daycase admissions resulted in unplanned inpatient admission on the day of surgery, with another 2.1% being readmitted within six months of surgery. Late cancellation of surgery was much lower for ...

Hospitals have been advised by NHS England to defer outpatient appointments and day case surgery and extend an existing deferral on non-urgent surgery until the end of January in a bid to ease mounting pressure on services this winter.. The National Emergency Pressures Panel, chaired by NHS Englands medical director, Bruce Keogh, has also told hospitals to place consultants in emergency units to assess whether patients are presenting with a genuine medical emergency.. The measures were taken as the service struggled to cope with the volume of patients presenting to emergency departments. The panel noted that the NHS has been under "sustained pressure" since Christmas, with early indications of an increase in flu prevalence, high levels of respiratory illness, and limited bed capacity.. To help free up capacity NHS England has told hospitals to defer day case procedures … ...

Due to medical advances in surgery and anesthesia and cost of hospital stays, more elective pediatric surgical procedures are being performed in outpatient settings. One proposed advantage of outpatient surgery is decreased anxiety or a shorter period of anxiety for pediatric patients and their families because they are able to go home shortly after the surgery. A literature review was conducted to describe anxiety experienced by pediatric patients and their families in the outpatient surgery setting and to explore ways to decrease that anxiety. Both children and parents reported not feeling emotionally and educationally prepared for outpatient surgery. Developmentally appropriate pre-surgical educational programs and parental involvement in the surgical experience can help alleviate the anxiety of both children and parents during the pediatric surgical experience. Nurse practitioners (NPs) are currently being used in pre-operative outpatient settings to conduct physical examinations and provide ...

The indications for vitrectomy have changed dramatically over the last 10 years. Refinement of surgical technique, coupled with improved instrumentation and the development of superior viewing systems, has paved the way for a new generation of surgical procedures. From the original indications of dense non-clearing haemorrhage and severe diabetic retinopathy, for example, we have now moved to the era of vitrectomy for epiretinal membrane, vitreomacular traction, subretinal surgery and symptomatic floaters. A local anaesthetic approach with sutureless incisions makes day case surgery possible and rapid rehabilitation a reality for most patients.

Patients who undergo an outpatient procedure should have someone to drive them home and stay with them following the procedure. Most patients are restricted from driving for 24 hours after surgery. Patients often experience drowsiness and minor after-effects, such as muscle aches, sore throat, and occasional dizziness and headaches. Occasionally nausea may also be present. There may also be fatigue and discomfort for a day or two following the surgery. This discomfort varies depending on the type of surgical procedure performed.. Once at home, the patient must be able to tolerate any pain from the procedure, with adequate pain management. Written and verbal instructions for proper pain management will be given and the patient must be able to follow these instructions. A nurse or the physician will generally follow up these instructions to make sure the patient is recovering normally. The patient will also receive telephone numbers to call if there are concerns or emergency help is needed.. Click ...

The Colorado filing and lawsuits in California detail an acrimonious and expensive battlefield littered with billion-dollar combatants. The insurance companies are the aggressors in California lawsuits claiming doctor-owned surgery centers there have cost them tens of millions in overpayments.. Aetna, for one, alleges fraud, unfair competition and unjust enrichment, "cherry-picking" of patients with the best insurance plans, and promises to doctor-investors of 800 percent annual returns on their money. The California suits focus on Bay Area Surgical Management.. An Aetna attorney said in an interview that the doctor-owned surgery centers method of doing business "shocks the conscience.". The Aetna suit lists multiple examples of the high charges. For breaking up a kidney stone, a California center charged $53,552, when Aetna paid in-network surgery centers only $4,269. Insurers realize they are no favorite of the consumer after years of premium hikes and scandals over dropping sick customers. ...

Remember that information on pain management gives you the appropriate expectations, resulting in a smoother, more comfortable recovery. It is important to follow instructions regarding your post operative pain medication closely. Many pain medications take 20 to 30 minutes to begin to work. For best results, the pain medication should be taken before the pain becomes too strong ...
You can expect to have varying degrees of discomfort from your incisions, your pelvis, and from your shoulder(s). The incision and pelvis because these are the sites where incisions and tissue manipulation actually took place. The shoulder pain is due to the small amount of gas (CO2) used to create space during the operation left in the abdomen. This will usually disappear the first or second day. It is felt in the shoulder area because the gas "floats" up irritating the diaphragm which shares the nerve supply from the same area of the spinal cord as the shoulder.. ...
A large number of elective surgical patients in Sweden and elsewhere have their surgical procedure performed in a day surgery context. The surgical care event, with its postoperative surveillance, is brief at the surgery unit and patients are discharged home with the intention that they should manage postoperative recovery mainly themselves. However, several patients attest to being in an exposed situation when assuming responsibility for recovery at home. The overall aim of this thesis was to attain comprehensive knowledge of postoperative recovery following day surgery from a patient perspective.. A questionnaire, the Post-discharge Surgical Recovery scale, was translated into Swedish and evaluated regarding its psychometric properties in a Swedish context. A sample of 607 day surgery patients who had undergone orthopaedic, general or gynaecological surgery self-rated their recovery at postoperative Days 1, 7 and 14 using the Post-discharge Surgical Recovery scale and the Quality of ...

Studies have demonstrated that, typically, the cost of a patient for a procedure performed in an accredited ambulatory surgery facility is only one-third to one-half of the cost for the same procedure performed in a hospital. But this is only part of the story. One of the factors contributing to lower cost is the outstanding safety record of accredited ambulatory facilities. It has been shown that the incidence of complications in an accredited outpatient facility is comparable to that of a hospital-based ambulatory surgery facility. Safety plus low cost make the accredited ambulatory surgery facility an attractive option.. The bottom line is that State accreditation is todays best assurance of safety, quality and efficiency in the outpatient surgery environment. It is a program that has achieved wide recognition from the medical community, state legislatures, state and national health care agencies, insurance companies and patients. So, for your plastic surgery in the Southern Oregon area, you ...
To investigate the incidence of pain following discharge from reproductive day surgery. Cross-sectional descriptive study. A public hospital for women in Melbourne. 315 women participated in phone interviews and 10 in face-to-face interviews. Self-reports of pain were assessed in relation to age, English and non-English speaking background, prior experience of day surgery, type of surgery, time in recovery, information provision prior to surgery, and access to significant others at home. Older women were less likely to report having pain immediately following discharge (regression coefficient = -0.72, 95% CI, 0.58 to 0.88, p , or = 0.01), or within 48 hours following discharge (regression coefficient = - 0.71, 95% CI, 0.57 to 0.88, p , or = 0.05). Women with a prior experience of day surgery were 1.9 times more likely to be in pain within 48 hours following surgery (regression co-efficient 1.88, 95% CI, 1.134 to 3.10, p , or = 0.05). Women who understood information were less likely to report ...

The surgery is a day case procedure usually under local anaesthetic and takes about 10 minutes. A tourniquet is not often used, as adrenaline ( a vasoconstrictor) is mixed with the local anaesthetic to reduce bleeding.. The surgery is performed through a 2cm transverse skin crease incision Local anaesthetic (with adrenaline) is infiltrated under the skin in line with the incision at the thumb side of the wrist. Once numb the skin is incised and the underlying fat is retracted. Care is taken not to injure sensitive nerves and blood vessels. At the base of the wound is the extensor compartment sheath. This structure needs to be released to allow the tendon and its nodule to glide in and out without catching. Occasionally multiple small sub compartments need to be released. The skin is sutured with absorbable stitches under the skin ( no need to be removed) and a bulky dressing is applied.. ...

Research into the treatment of pancreatic cancer in adults. Over 1,650 Australians are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer each year. In most cases surgery will remove the tumour but it is possible that the cancer will return as a result of undetectable disease (micrometastases). The cancer will return and be incurable in the majority of patients. More than 1600 Australians die of the disease every year. This study compares the impact of adding chemotherapy to surgery alone (the standard of care). The study will also compare the effectiveness of two different types of chemotherapy. It is possible that patients treated with chemotherapy after their tumour has been surgically removed may live longer before their disease returns and may live longer overall. This has been shown to be true in other cancers e.g. breast and bowel. The side effects of chemotherapy are important and can be severe in some people. Recent studies of advanced pancreatic cancer have suggested that the new drug gemcitabine may be ...
Last year, when Id gone to California, it was in my mind quite possibly a goodbye tour. This year, thanks to the won trip from the brainpower5k, it was more of a hello tour. I saw many of the same people but this time I had my own rental car instead of having to be driven around. I got to stay for a while instead of making it a whirlwind tour since I wanted to minimize the days off in case surgery went poorly (though Ill grant I may have worked the holiday on Monday before just because I still want to have maximum amount paid time off). I also had Kiana with me and we got to do all kinds of fun things in San Francisco which she looked at with the wonderment only children have. I dont know how long those memories will last for either of us but I am glad we get to keep making them. Many of the same friends showed up and of course, they had this question about the surgery and about the medical tests but without exception I tried to always move onto more important things about this persons new ...

Background: Day surgery has increased during recent decades in many countries and represents approximately 50% of surgical procedures performed in Sweden. Day surgery implies that the patient is admitted and operated on during the same day and discharged without an overnight stay at the surgery unit. Undergoing a day surgical procedure thereby means that the major part of the postoperative recovery takes place in the patients home, leaving the patient and his/her supportive network responsible for the postoperative care. Day surgery also implies that health care professionals have to adapt to outpatient care and find valid measurements for monitoring a patients recovery progress after discharge.. Aims: The aim of Study I was to evaluate the psychometric properties of a translated version of the Post-discharge Surgical Recovery (PSR) scale in a Swedish day surgery sample in terms of data quality, internal consistency, dimensionality and responsiveness. The aim of Study II was to describe ...
WHAT AGE IS RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM THE SURGERY? Children can perceive their ears are different and whether theyre being made fun of as young as 3 to 4 years old. By 6 six years old these hurtful comments can negatively affect their self esteem. I suggest the age of 6 for the surgery because the ear has achieved 90% of its adults size. By forming more streamlined ears at 6 years old, we can prevent psychological damage caused by teasing and the minimal amount of remaining ear growth wont affect the surgical correction.. WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE SURGERY? Otoplasty is a safe, simple and common procedure. It is performed in a state of the art outpatient surgery facility with all of the latest technology. For a small child, I normally use general anesthesia. For older children and adults, I use local anesthesia combined with sedation. Depending on the extensiveness of the correction, surgery takes from 2 to 3 hours. The incisions are well hidden behind the ears so theyre not detectible by the ...

The most common conditions that altered care were insulin-dependent diabetes, asthma, gastroesophageal reflux, and probable difficult airway. ...
It kind of hit me yesterday that no matter how much I try to downplay it I have to hand Eli over for surgery tomorrow. He is on antibiotics for an ear infection and I think part of me was hoping that they would delay the surgery (I like to think I can procrastinate away all my problems. It is a gift ;) ) unfortunately, anesthesia said the surgery is a go and that he will be unaffected by the antibiotics. Please pray for him. It is an outpatient surgery it is one that these amazing surgeons can do in their sleep but I am his Mommy and he is my precious baby so it is difficult for me today. The worst part of his last surgery was the part where they said "Mam (yes, they made me feel 95 by saying this) we are ready for him". This is the part where they take your baby from you and you let them. I would like to not let them but I figure that is a quick way to get on the news as the crazy lady who wouldnt give up her baby and fight and kicked so they wouldnt take him. So, I will give him over to the ...
Some Food & Drug Administration (FDA) advisors are pushing for new warnings on the labels of <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/defective_drugs">Suprane and Colazal because of potential risks these drugs may pose when used in children. An FDA safety panel is scheduled to meet tomorrow to discuss the safety of Suprane and Colazal, as well as other medications used in children.. Suprane, an anesthetic manufactured by Baxter International, has been associated with instances of cardiac arrest when it has been used in children. According to Baxters website, Suprane is indicated as an inhalation agent for induction and/or maintenance of general anesthesia for inpatient and outpatient surgery. On December 15, 2006, the FDA approved an expanded indication of Suprane, allowing its use for the maintenance of anesthesia in infants and children, after induction with other agents and tracheal intubation.. According to documents posted on the FDA website, the agency has received three reports ...

Not only is it a disgrace that there is neither the funding nor staff available to ensure the operation of the theatre, but it also means that the equipment in the theatre could become obsolete without it ever even being used once. "In the midst of the worst waiting list crisis in the history of the State there are acute medical facilities which could be reducing inpatient and outpatient surgery waiting times but are instead closed because of staffing and funding deficits. "At the Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise an Endoscopy Room lies closed. This is in spite of the fact that there are over 200 people on a waiting list for gastrointestinal endoscopy procedures in that very hospital.. "The final closed key acute medical facility was at Naas General Hospital where the HSE informed me that a state of the art operating theatre had not been commissioned since the hospital opened in 2002 due to staffing and funding deficits. "The Operating Department at the hospital is of huge significance for ...
The head of general surgery at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center had a remarkably simple idea not long ago: What if the department suggested that surgeons limit prescriptions of narcotic pain pills to a specific number for different kinds of operations?. Even veteran surgeons really had no idea how many opioids to send home with their patients. The results were dramatic: The number of pills prescribed by doctors for five common outpatient surgeries dropped by 53 percent, and patients didnt consume all the pills they were given. The total number of pills prescribed dropped from 6,170 before the education initiative to 2,932 afterward.. Read more : The Washington Post Mar 7, 2017. ...
Tubes can be inserted in an outpatient surgery clinic. Children usually recover quickly and have little pain or other symptoms after surgery. Children can usually go home within 1 to 2 hours after the surgery. Your child will probably be able to return to school or child care the next day.. Follow-up visits to the doctor after a child has tubes inserted are very important. The doctor checks to see whether the tubes are working and whether the childs hearing has improved. Ask your doctor if your child needs to take extra care to keep water from getting in the ears when bathing or swimming. Your child may need to wear earplugs. Check with your doctor to find out what he or she recommends.. Tubes normally remain in the ears for 6 to 12 months. They often fall out on their own. If the tubes dont fall out on their own, your child may need surgery to remove them. After the tubes are out, watch your child for signs of ear infection or fluid behind the eardrum.. ...

A week later I got a call from a doctor who was rather angry and accusatory. I told him the truth about my mother-in-law giving me the pill and he requested I provide him with the prescription within 24 hours. I told my boss and he told me to see if I had that prescription in my name so I went home and looked and didnt have anything like that but did have a full bottle of Vicodin which was given to me in 9/2009 after a outpatient surgery. I told my boss that it was the only prescription I had and that I wasnt going to lie to cover up the truth which is that my mother in law gave me the acetaminophen with codeine. I took it without questioning her as she is like a mother to me ...
Why is this important?. In October 2008, the U.S. News and World Report published an article by Bernadine Healy, former head of NIH. The tag line "understanding the genetic underpinnings of cancer is a giant step toward personalized medicine," (1) underscores how the popular press views the promise of recent advances in genomics technology in general, and the progress toward understanding the molecular basis of cancer. In the article, Healy presents a scenario where, in 2040, a 45-year-old woman, who has never smoked, develops lung cancer. She undergoes outpatient surgery, and her doctors quickly scrutinize the tumors genes and use a desktop computer to analyze the tumor genomes, and medical records to create a treatment plan. She is treated, the cancer recedes and subsequent checkups are conducted to monitor tumor recurrence. Should a tumor be detected, her doctor would quickly analyze the DNA of a few of the shed tumor cells and prescribe a suitable next round of therapy. The patient lives a ...

Ill also bring up another point, more as an education thing. Since cancer is *not* one disease, approach to treatment is extremely specialized, so anyone thinking "If I got diagnosed with cancer, I wouldnt go through ______", not a good way to look at it. There are pediatric leukemias that have an 80-90% ten year survival rate. The kids lose all their hair, turn white, look like death, get scary pneumonias where theyre on a ventilator and youre absolutely certain theyre done, and two years later, boom. Hair back, rallied, good grades in school, no cancer. Breast cancer? Runs everything from "not a big deal" to "death sentence". If you ever get cancer, talk extensively with your doctor, look up articles, etc. Also, dont wait because you dont want to deal with it or you dont have the money. Often the only difference between outpatient surgery and stage four metastatic disease is time. Keep in mind, I am *not* saying cling onto the promise of life by your fingernails in the face of ...

Surgery brings plenty of that, said Dr. Carolyn Seib, a general and endocrine surgeon at the University of California, San Francisco. The effects of anesthesia and inflammation, the risk of blood clots or infection, muscle weakness caused by days in bed - all can take a toll.. "The more frail a patient is, the higher the risk of complications," Dr. Seib said.. Researchers have shown that after major operations - including cardiac and colon cancer surgery and kidney transplants - frail older patients are more prone than others to longer hospital stays, being readmitted within a month of a procedure and winding up in nursing homes after theyre discharged.. Theyre also more likely to die.. But a study that Dr. Seib and her colleagues published in JAMA Surgery this month shows that frail seniors face higher complications even after ambulatory surgery, outpatient procedures often considered routine.. Hernia repairs, thyroid or parathyroid surgery, operations for breast cancer - "patients and ...

Data source: Minimum Basic Data Set (MBDS) of hospital care episodes. Potential Day Surgery Episode (PDSE) was defined as the hospital episode with a surgical procedure (ICD-9-CM), programmed admission and home discharge. To be considered as PDSE, the selected procedure must appear in at least 50 day-surgery cases and be developed in at least 5 hospitals. The study database included: MBDS of 188 (85%) hospitals in the National Health System and 32 (15%) Spanish private hospitals in the year 2006 with 1,162,082 surgical admissions. From 1,770 procedures identified (ICD-9-MC), 798 fulfilled PDSE criteria that were finally grouped in 204 procedure groups. From the total number of surgical admissions, 931,630 episodes were considered as PDSE and 541,715 were observed as real day-surgery episodes (substitution index of 58.1%). A logistic regression model was applied to estimate the expected number of day-surgery episodes. The dependent variable was day-surgery case (yes/no). ...

When you swallow, a muscle called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) relaxes to allow food and liquid to flow down into your stomach, and then it closes again. Sometimes, however, this muscle relaxes abnormally or weakens causing stomach acid to flow back up into your esophagus. Some acid reflux symptoms include tasting regurgitated food or sour liquid at the back of your mouth or feeling a burning sensation in your chest, also known as heartburn. This backwash of acid can irritate the lining of your esophagus, causing it to become inflamed. Over time, the inflammation can erode the esophagus, causing complications such as bleeding or swallowing problems ...
PURPOSE: Rubber band ligation is a common office procedure for hemorrhoids. Triple rubber band ligation in a single session has been shown to be a safe and economical way of treating hemorrhoids. However, postligation discomfort after triple rubber band ligation is not uncommon. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of local anesthetic injection to the banded hemorrhoidal tissue in reduction postligation discomfort. METHODS: Patients attending an outpatient clinic for symptomatic hemorrhoids suitable for triple rubber band ligation were randomly assigned to two groups. In the treatment group rubber band ligation was performed at three columns of hemorrhoids, and 1 to 2 ml of 2 percent lignocaine was injected into the banded hemorrhoidal tissue. In the control group triple rubber band ligation was preformed in a similar manner, but local anesthetic was not given. Patients were followed up by telephone at the second week and in the clinic after six weeks. RESULTS: From April to ...
Laser photocoagulation and cryopexy are used to fix tears in the retina and prevent a retinal detachment. These methods work well to treat certain retinal tears. But some people will need future treatment for a tear in another part of the retina.. You can usually receive these treatments in a doctors office or an outpatient surgery center. They do not require a hospital stay or general anesthesia. You may need to limit your activity for a couple of weeks after treatment.. In laser photocoagulation, an intense beam of light travels through the eye and makes tiny burns around the tear in the retina. Over several weeks the burns form scars that prevent fluid from getting under the retina.. Cryopexy achieves the same result by using a probe to freeze and seal the retina around the tear.. Both methods keep fluid in the middle of the eye from passing through the retinal tear. If fluid gets under the retina, the retina can detach from the wall of the eye.. If you need retinal detachment surgery and ...
