Causes of nitrous oxide contamination in operating rooms. (1/424)

BACKGROUND: To reduce the ambient concentration of waste anesthetic agents, exhaust gas scavenging systems are standard in almost all operating rooms. The incidence of contamination and the factors that may increase the concentrations of ambient anesthetic gases have not been evaluated fully during routine circumstances, however. METHODS: Concentrations of nitrous oxide (N2O) in ambient air were monitored automatically in 10 operating rooms in Kagoshima University Hospital from January to March 1997. Ambient air was sampled automatically from each operating room, and the concentrations of N2O were analyzed every 22 min by an infrared spectrophotometer. The output of the N2O analyzer was integrated electronically regarding time, and data were displayed on a monitor in the administrative office for anesthesia supervisors. A concentration of N2O > 50 parts per million was regarded as abnormally high and was displayed with an alarm signal. The cause of the high concentration of N2O was then sought. RESULTS: During the 3-month investigation, N2O was used in 402 cases. Abnormally high concentrations of N2O were detected at some time during 104 (25.9%) of those cases. The causes were mask ventilation (42 cases, 40.4% of detected cases), unconnected scavenging systems (20 cases, 19.2%), leak around uncuffed pediatric endotracheal tube (13 cases, 12.5%), equipment leakage (12 cases, 11.5%), and others (17 cases, 16.4%). CONCLUSIONS: N2O contamination was common during routine circumstances in our operating rooms. An unconnected scavenging system led to the highest concentrations of N2O recorded. Proper use of scavenging systems is necessary if contamination by anesthetic gas is to be limited.  (+info)

Radiation dose to patients and personnel during intraoperative digital subtraction angiography. (2/424)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The use of intraoperative angiography to assess the results of neurovascular surgery is increasing. The purpose of this study was to measure the radiation dose to patients and personnel during intraoperative angiography and to determine the effect of experience. METHODS: Fifty consecutive intraoperative angiographic studies were performed during aneurysmal clipping or arteriovenous malformation resection from June 1993 to December 1993 and another 50 from December 1994 to June 1995. Data collected prospectively included fluoroscopy time, digital angiography time, number of views, and amount of time the radiologist spent in the room. Student's t-test was used to assess statistical significance. Effective doses were calculated from radiation exposure measurements using adult thoracic and head phantoms. RESULTS: The overall median examination required 5.2 minutes of fluoroscopy, 55 minutes of operating room use, 40 seconds of digital angiographic series time, and four views and runs. The mean room time and the number of views and runs increased in the second group of patients. A trend toward reduced fluoroscopy time was noted. Calculated effective doses for median values were as follows: patient, 76.7 millirems (mrems); radiologist, 0.028 mrems; radiology technologist, 0.044 mrems; and anesthesiologist, 0.016 mrems. CONCLUSION: Intraoperative angiography is performed with a reasonable radiation dose to the patient and personnel. The number of angiographic views and the radiologist's time in the room increase with experience.  (+info)

Total joint replacement: implication of cancelled operations for hospital costs and waiting list management. (3/424)

OBJECTIVE: To identify aspects of provision of total joint replacements which could be improved. DESIGN: 10 month prospective study of hospital admissions and hospital costs for patients whose total joint replacement was cancelled. SETTING: Information and Waiting List Unit, Musgrave Park Regional Orthopaedic Service, Belfast. PATIENTS: 284 consecutive patients called for admission for total joint replacement. MAIN MEASURES: Costs of cancellation of operation after admission in terms of hotel and opportunity costs. RESULTS: 28(10%) planned operations were cancelled, 27 of which were avoidable cancellations. Five replacement patients were substituted on the theatre list, leaving 22(8%) of 232 operating theatre opportunities unused. Patients seen at assessment clinics within two months before admission had a significantly higher operation rate than those admitted from a routine waiting list (224/232(97%) v 32/52(62%), x2 = 58.6, df = 1; p < 0.005). Mean duration of hospital stay in 28 patients with cancelled operations was 1.92 days. Operating theatre opportunity costs were 73% of the total costs of cancelled total joint replacements. CONCLUSION: Patients on long waiting lists for surgery should be reassessed before admission to avoid wasting theatre opportunities, whose cost is the largest component of the total costs of cancelled operations.  (+info)

Surgical subspecialty block utilization and capacity planning: a minimal cost analysis model. (4/424)

BACKGROUND: Operational inefficiencies in the use of operating rooms (ORs) are hidden by traditional measures of OR utilization. To better detect these inefficiencies, the authors defined two new terms, underutilization and overutilization, and illustrated how these measures might be used to evaluate the use of surgical subspecialty ORs. The authors also described capacity planning (optimizing surgical subspecialty block time allotments) using a minimal cost analysis (MCA) model. METHODS: The authors evaluated post hoc all surgeries performed over 6 yr at a large teaching hospital. To prepare utilization estimates, surgical records were categorized relative to budgeted OR block time for each subspecialty. Surgical cases beginning and ending during budgeted OR block time were categorized as budgeted utilization, budgeted time not used for surgery was underutilization, and cases beginning before/after budgeted block time were classified as overutilization. Cases that overlapped budgeted and nonbudgeted OR block time were parsed and the portions were assigned appropriately. Probability distributions were fitted to the historical patterns of surgical demand, and MCA block time budgets were estimated that minimized the costs of underutilization and overutilization for each subspecialty. To illustrate the potential savings if these MCA budgets were implemented, the authors compared actual operational costs to the estimated MCA budget costs and expressed the savings as a percentage of actual costs. RESULTS: The authors analyzed data from 58,251 surgical cases and 10 surgical subspecialty blocks. Classic utilization for each block-day by surgical subspecialty ranged from 44-113%. Average daily block-specific underutilization ranged from 16 to 60%, whereas overutilization ranged from 4 to 49%. CONCLUSIONS: Underutilization and overutilization are important measures because they may be used to evaluate the quality of OR schedules and the efficiency of OR utilization. Overutilization and underutilization also allow capacity planning using an MCA model This study indicated that the potential savings, if the MCA budgets were to be implemented, would be significant.  (+info)

Emergency surgery: half a day does make a difference. (5/424)

The emergency operating patterns in a district general hospital were significantly altered by the introduction of an afternoon emergency theatre list co-ordinated by a consultant anaesthetist. Before the introduction of the list, 88% of emergency operations were carried out after 17.00, with 40% of cases waiting until after 22.00. Introduction of the emergency session significantly reduced the operations performed after 17.00 to 53%, with only 12% being delayed until after 22.00.  (+info)

Impact of the introduction of a daily trauma list on out-of-hours operating. (6/424)

The British Orthopaedic Association have recommended that all hospitals should have daily, consultant-led, trauma lists. We have prospectively examined the introduction of a daily trauma list on the out-of-hours operating and the management of trauma in one district hospital. The data collected were compared with a corresponding 6-month period in 1996. It was found that the mean usage of the list was 2 h 38 min; 10% of lists were not used. There has been a significant reduction in the number of operations performed out-of-hours, and also a significant reduction in the amount of out-of-hours operating after midnight. More complex cases have also been operated on in normal working hours. The initial introduction of a daily trauma list has had a significant impact on the total amount of out-of-hours operating and has increased consultant supervision of the management of trauma, thereby increasing the quality of care for these patients.  (+info)

Teleradiology in the operating room of the future. (7/424)

Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are rapidly making this modality the imaging method of choice for image-guided neurosurgical operations. However, to be ready for its prime time in the operating room (OR), utilization of MRI in the OR requires development of better techniques for image-guided navigation, as well as interactive real-time teleradiologic methods that will allow tele-collaboration between the surgeon and the radiologist. This presentation describes our work in progress toward achievement of teleradiology in the OR.  (+info)

Early experience with simulated trauma resuscitation. (8/424)

Although trauma resuscitation is best taught through direct exposure with hands-on experience, the opportunities for this type of teaching in Canada are limited by the relatively low incidence of serious injury and the consolidation of trauma care to a small number of centres. Simulators have been used extensively outside the health care environment and more recently have been used by anesthetists to simulate intraoperative crises. In this paper early experience using a realistic mannequin, controlled by a remote computer, that simulates a variety of physiologic and injury specific variables is presented. The resource implications of simulated resuscitation are reviewed, including one-time and operating costs. Simulated trauma resuscitation may be an educational alternative to "real-life" trauma resuscitation, but careful evaluation of the benefits and resource implications of this type of teaching through well-designed research studies will be important.  (+info)

N2 - The aim of this study was to determine if a relationship existed between some inhalation anesthetics airborne exposure levels (Cl) and the concentration of anesthetics in samples of urine produced throughout the exposure time (Cu). The concentrations of nitrous oxide (N2O), halothane (fluothane), enflurane (ethrane), and isoflurane (forane) in the ambient atmosphere were determined in 190 operating theaters of 41 hospitals in Italy. Nitrous oxide, halothane, enflurane and isoflurane were detected in the urine of 1521 exposed subjects (anesthetists, surgeons, and nurses). The environmental measurements were performed using personal passive samplers, and the biological measurements were performed using the head space method. Significant correlations were found between the anesthetics concentration ...
IRVING, Texas -- Operating rooms (OR) are important centers of patient care and hospital revenue, but a significant portion of OR time is consumed by non-operative activities. To improve care and enhance revenue opportunities, hospitals need to make improving operating room efficiency a high priority. In spring 2006, VHAs regional office in Indianapolis, launched an initiative to help hospitals improve clinical practices and patient care in the operating room. Twenty-nine hospitals from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio joined the VHA national initiative through the regional office.

Now the problem was to find a suitable place to carry out my surgical feats. Where do I operate without endangering the lives of other patients? But operate I must. Even in that toxic state, my patients faint smile spurred me on. I approached the Assistant Dean of the hospital explained my dilemma. He very rightly refused permission to use any room for my surgical prowess anywhere near the main hospital building. However, very magnanimously he offered the corridor of the Infectious Disease Ward next to the Post Mortem room, to be converted into an operation Theatre. This corridor was duly improvised as an Operation Theatre and a wooden table was thrown in to be used as the operation table. Now where was I to get the lighting in this newly improvised Operation Theatre? By now, the authorities had become more generous and I provided with an overhanging 100 watt bulb for illumination during the surgical exercise ...

A surgical suite scrub station is disclosed provided with means to adjust the spacing between the forearm ports of the device from the ground on which the user stands during the use. Only a small amount of the cleansing mixture is recirculated to improve the ambient conditions by reducing the volume of gases normally generated when working with antimicrobial substances. An air curtain is used in preventing escape of cleansing or rinsing substance out of the forearm inserting ports of the cleansing compartment. The device presents improvement in convenience and economy of operation of surgical scrub stations.
Results Median total errors per procedure in independently-observed prospective studies were 15.5, interquartile range (IQR) 2.0-17.8. Failures of equipment/technology accounted for a median 23.5% (IQR 15.0%-34.1%) of total error. The median number of equipment problems per procedure was 0.9 (IQR 0.3-3.6). From eight studies, subdivision of equipment failures was possible into: equipment availability (37.3%), configuration and settings (43.4%) and direct malfunctioning (33.5%). Observed error rates varied widely with study design and with type of operation: those with a greater burden of technology/equipment tended to show higher equipment-related error rates. Checklists (or similar interventions) reduced equipment error by mean 48.6% (and 60.7% in three studies using specific equipment checklists).. ...
To increase operating room (OR) efficiency, a new resource allocation strategy, a new policy for patient urgency classification, and a new system for OR booking was implemented at a tertiary referral hospital. We investigated the impact of these interventions. We carried out a before-and-after study using OR data. A total of 23 515 elective (planned) and non-elective (unplanned) orthopaedic and general surgeries were conducted during calendar year 2007 (period 1) and July 2008 to July 2009 (period 2). The Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test was used to calculate statistical significance. An increased amount of case time (7.1%, p | 0.05) was conducted without any increase in out-of-hours case time. Despite having three fewer ORs for electives, slightly more elective case time was handled with 26% less use of overtime (p | 0.05). Mean OR utilization was 56% for the 17 mixed ORs, 60% for the 14 elective ORs, and 62% for the 3 dedicated ORs. A 20% growth (p | 0.05) of non-elective case time was primarily absorbed

Background The operating room (OR) in an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) is what generates income for an organization, but it can also be costly if its improperly managed. The purpose of this project is to decrease OR turnover time (TOT) in order to increase OR efficiency, patient and staff satisfaction, as well as be cost effective. As defined by Gottschalk et al. (2016), OR turnover time is

Another week passes and were done with the first round of development. In this round we worked to migrate the Operation Theater module to the current platform, and the last week focused on modifying the theater scheduler.. Weve finished modifying it, and the results are mind-boggling. No, seriously, its messed up. Right now it schedules activities one after the other on the same day, without looking at the open hours of the theaters. So not what we want.. Its got something to do with the timelines used when running the scheduler. The start and end times of a theater, and those of a procedure seem to be having an error in the way they get time zones. I need to take a deeper look at that.. Our main goal of migrating the module is complete. Correcting some errors is whats left of it.. The second round of development focuses on pre-theater data collection. This is the first part of the workflow of any procedure. We need to collect data about the patients condition, medications and things that ...

Surgical Department today! Was late by 1 minute today because I went to the school before going to hospital. :P 3 of us spent some time looking for where for we should go but barged into the Operation Theater door instead. But at last found Sister Wong at the Male Surgical Ward. She gave some briefing and let us follow the Dr Wong, Dr Suraj, Dr Tarek, Dr Kenneth and Dr Chong(houseman) round the ward. We walked from one cubicle to another. The environment in the ward is much calmer than E&T yesterday and most patients there are waiting for surgery or had done it. What the doctors did was to attend to each patient check on their condition upon referring to the previous diagnosis or reports from tests. We were quite confused with the doctors conversation actually but made an effort to listen anyway. (all those terms =.=) Then we went to the Female Surgical Ward. There were fewer patients there. Some with jaundice, gastritis, goitre and finally cancer. We witnessed how the surgeons told the ...
Sun, Aug 13 2017 Situation in Karnataka too is not much different. Live saving drugs are in short supply in Government hospitals. Health Minister has announced recently that government has arranged supply of all essential medicines and doctors giving prescription to outside will be suspended from service. Reports emanating from insiders are shocking and we are floating on a bubble. With dilapidated building, unhygienic operation theaters, lack of infrastructure, non-availability of essential life saving drugs, non functional equipment and shortage of funds makes our government hospitals next behind UP and any thing can happen at anytime. Government is slowly withdrawing from essential service sectors. Education is more or less privatized and the private universities has brought the standards to unspeakable levels. Health care system is gripped by PPP model and government will exit gracefully in the near future. Over a period of time, tax collection and fund management alone will be left under ...

N-Acylethanolamines, or NAEs,* are fatty acid derivatives that are amide-linked to an ethanolamine moiety (Fig. 1). They differ in their acyl chain length and number of double bonds, and they are present at trace concentrations in organisms throughout the eukaryotic domain. These lipids have been shown to have potent biological activities in the plant and animal kingdoms, but much of what is known about them pertains to their regulation of animal physiology and behavior.. Several NAE types act in the endocannabinoid signaling system of vertebrates by serving as endogenous ligands to the cannabinoid receptors (CB1 and CB2). Additional studies have shown that the complement of NAEs present in animal tissues, including those that are inactive as CB receptors, act either as entourage lipids or directly on targets other than CB receptors, such as vanilloid receptor ion channels and peroxisome proliferator activated receptor transcription factors (1). Regardless of NAE type, the bioactivity in ...

I have just spent six days in hospital after having four operations on my badly infected finger (I tried to amputate it in the side door of my van two weeks ago). All the staff on the ward from the cleaners and ancillary staff through to the ward sister along with the surgeon and theatre staff were all cheerful and positive. The care and professionalism they showed to me and the other patients on the ward was second to none. They did all this without any extra ppe gear and although many had families they carried on as normal even working extra shifts to cover absent staff. No doubt they are terrified inside but none I met outwardly showed it and I have nothing but praise for them. I only wish that when I return to work in a fortnight (I deliver medical supplies to pharmacies and hospitals) I can show the same level of kindness and professionalism to my customers. Edited ...

In 2012, Forum Theatre convened a symposium to investigate the gender imbalance in theatre and posed this question: Is there a female dramaturgy (ie. a specific point of view that female writers bring to theatre)? If so, what does it look, sound and feel like? Who holds the agency for it?. JL: Where do you live? How do you feel your community has addressed the issues of gender parity? How has this particular issue impacted you and your ability to practice your craft?.
