Improving Surgical Patient Outcomes Through A Cross-Training Program For The Hybrid Operating Room, Ana Chozet-Griggs

Master's Projects and Capstones

Abstract

Innovations in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms have resulted in the reduction of open surgical procedures and the increased use of minimally invasive procedures known as endovascular aortic artery repairs (EVAR) and thoracic endovascular artery repairs (EVAR). These hybrid procedures integrate the technical skills and resources used in surgical procedures with the technology used for radiological interventions. (Odle, 2011). These procedures are performed in a Hybrid Operating Room (HOR) within the Catheterization Laboratory (Cath Lab) microsystem. A HOR is a surgical operating room that is equipped with interventional radiology imaging and equipment (Taylor, 2017). These high-risk procedures demand ...

Master's Projects and Capstones

Surgical site infections (SSI) cause negative health care effects to patients and hospitals. SSI is one of the most common types of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) accounting for 31% among hospitalized patients (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2012). It is associated with prolonged length of stays (LOS), higher morbidity and mortality, and increased healthcare costs. The purpose of this quality improvement project is to decrease SSI rates by enhancing patient education and engagement in preoperative care and hygiene before surgery. In a metropolitan pediatric hospital, a microsystem analysis of the preoperative unit was conducted before generating the SSI Prevention ...

An Integrative Review Of Fluid Management In Cardiac Surgery, Beena George

Master's Theses, Dissertations, Graduate Research and Major Papers Overview

Adequate fluid administration during and after cardiac surgery is essential to ensure adequate oxygen delivery to the tissues, while simultaneously avoiding the dangers of hypervolemia and fluid overload. In both cardiac and non-cardiac surgery there has been debate on what the best approach to fluid management is, what hemodynamic parameters should be used to assess fluid requirements, and what type of fluids should be used. There are several studies in non-cardiac surgery that examine these issues, while they are fewer in the field of cardiac surgery. An integrative review design was used to examine the current evidence on fluid management ...
