This project aimed to determine if the use of simulation may be useful in training Student Registered Nurse Anesthetist in the management skills of a difficult airway. The proposed intervention of this project was the addition of simulation experience to didactic lecture covering difficult airway management techniques. As supported in the Adult Learning Principles of Medical Learners, by allowing the SRNA to actively participate in ...


Elevating The Head Of Bed During Preoxygenation For Obese Patients Undergoing General Anesthesia: A Clinical Policy Proposal, Brian F. Seymour Jr. 2018 University of Southern Mississippi

Elevating The Head Of Bed During Preoxygenation For Obese Patients Undergoing General Anesthesia: A Clinical Policy Proposal, Brian F. Seymour Jr.

Doctoral Projects

Preoxygenation plays a vital role in ensuring patient safety for all patient populations, especially those considered clinically obese. The negative pathophysiological effects obesity has related to body habitus and respiratory mechanics increases the risk of unexpected adverse events. Obese patients encounter a 50% decrease in functional residual capacity (FRC) when undergoing general anesthesia. Dixon et al., (2005) addressed the link between efficient oxygenation and improving oxygen storage by lessening atelectasis and intrapulmonary shunting via preoxygenation in a more upright position. Can standardizing preoxygenation techniques among anesthesia providers improve patient safety and decrease hospital system’s risk by implementing an evidence-based ...


Drug Diversion Reporting And Response: A Policy Analysis, Lauren Roberts 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Drug Diversion Reporting And Response: A Policy Analysis, Lauren Roberts

Doctoral Projects

Despite the significant improvements made to address addiction and drug diversion by healthcare personnel, the issue continues to be problematic for most healthcare facilities. Current literature suggests that healthcare institutions incorporate early drug diversion and addiction education, implementation of effective policies and procedures, and continuous drug screening will strongly aid in decreasing the prevalence of drug diversion by healthcare providers.

Among all the different types of healthcare providers, anesthesia providers continue to be at a disproportionately higher risk for addiction and drug diversion when compared to other providers (AANA, 2016). The stress of a demanding profession, personality, and easy access ...


Tools To Increase Compliance And Decrease Mortality Due To Sepsis, Cody F. Carr 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Tools To Increase Compliance And Decrease Mortality Due To Sepsis, Cody F. Carr

Doctoral Projects

Severe sepsis is a leading cause of death in the United States and is the most common cause of death among critically ill patients in non-coronary intensive care units (Mayr, Yende, & Angus, 2014). The incidence of severe sepsis is estimated to be 300 cases per 100,000 population and cost an estimated $14 billion in the United States (Mayr et al., 2014). This Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) project focused on identifying an early-assessment tool to identify sepsis and increase compliance when using the tool. Identifying sepsis early is important in starting a treatment plan to prevent morbidity and mortality ...


Best Practice Policy Recommendation For Neuraxial Anesthesia Skin Antiseptic Solutions, Kyle Adams 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Best Practice Policy Recommendation For Neuraxial Anesthesia Skin Antiseptic Solutions, Kyle Adams

Doctoral Projects

A clinical affiliate hospital in Mississippi lacked a best practice clinical policy regarding the most appropriate skin preparation solution to use prior to neuraxial anesthesia. The evidence showed that alcoholic chlorhexidine is the optimal solution due to advanced characteristics which help reduce infection. Reducing infections can potentially reduce further complications for the patient, hospitalization length, and cost. Also, chlorhexidine was found safe to use for neuraxial anesthesia if cross-contamination is avoided and adequate drying time is allowed. Lastly, alcoholic povidone-iodine is an appropriate alternate if 0.5% chlorhexidine is unavailable.

A best practice clinical policy was formulated and presented to ...


Following Epidural Pca Use, Do Obstetric Patients Feel Satisfied With Their Pain Control, James McRae 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Following Epidural Pca Use, Do Obstetric Patients Feel Satisfied With Their Pain Control, James Mcrae

Doctoral Projects

ABSTRACT

Pain is a source of anxiety for many patients, and uncontrolled pain can have deleterious effects on patient outcomes (Patak et al., 2014). Pain associated with labor is a particular concern of obstetric patients. Epidural analgesia is currently the frontline treatment for pain associated with labor, with epidural patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) often being utilized (Braveman, Scavone, Blessing, & Wong, 2013). Little evidence exists that details what factors of epidural PCA that patients considered important (Patak et al., 2014). In this project, a randomized questionnaire was administered to obstetric patients to assess satisfaction levels with their epidural PCA. The questionnaire also ...


Nurse Expectations As Compared To Perceived Reality, Kathryn McKelvy 2018 The University of Southern Mississippi

Nurse Expectations As Compared To Perceived Reality, Kathryn Mckelvy

Dissertations

Burnout and turnover in nursing have been well documented in nursing literature, but little is known about a nurse’s expectations of the profession compared to their perceived reality of the profession. Do these expectations meet the reality of the workplace, and does this cause the nurse to make a career change? What factors influence a nurse to leave the profession, job-hop, or return to school to further their education? The rate of nurse turnover is an ongoing issue with a lack of research regarding the foundation of nurse expectations compared to the realities of the profession.

The purpose of ...

Background: In mTNBC, anti-PD-1/L1 monotherapy is most effective when administered early in the course of disease, with recent trials demonstrating overall response rates (ORR) of 23-26% in the first-line setting and 5-6% in later lines. This may reflect iatrogenic lymphopenia from preceding cytotoxic chemotherapy. Furthermore, curative-intent chemotherapy is associated with prolonged suppression of naïve CD4+ cells, a T-cell subset that may play a critical role in the generation of de novo anti-tumor immune responses. We present the final clinical results of a pilot study evaluating the safety and efficacy of combining pembrolizumab plus standard-of-care capecitabine in the first/second-line ...

Background: Cytokines are being explored as a therapeutic strategy to modulate the tumor microenvironment and facilitate immunotherapy benefit in breast cancer. Here, we investigate a locoregional therapeutic approach whereby cytokines (IRX-2) are administered into the subcutaneous peri-areolar tissue (in an anatomic distribution similar to sentinel lymph node mapping) to facilitate immune cell recruitment/activation within the draining lymph nodes and tumor in ESBC. IRX-2 is derived from ex vivo phytohemagglutinin-stimulated lymphocytes and contains multiple cytokines including IL-1β, IL-2, TNF-α, IFN-γ, IL-6, IL-8, and GM-CSF, with stable concentrations from lot to lot. Preclinically, IRX-2 activates T-cells and natural killer (NK) cells ...

A Meta-Analytic Perspective On The Valid Use Of Subjective Human Judgement To Make Medical School Admission Decisions., Clare Kreiter, Marie O'Shea, Catherine Bruen, Paul J. Murphy, Teresa Pawlikowska

Medical Education/Health Professions Education Articles

While medical educators appear to believe that admission to the medical school should be governed, at least in part, by human judgement, there has been no systematic presentation of evidence suggesting it improves selection. From a fair testing perspective, legal, ethical, and psychometric considerations, all dictate that the scientific evidence regarding human judgement in selection should be given consideration. To investigate the validity of using human judgements in admissions, multi-disciplinary meta-analytic research evidence from the wider literature is combined with studies from within medical education to provide evidence regarding the fairness and validity of using interviews and holistic review in ...
