KOL-Index: 35 BACKGROUND: The surgical safety checklist is widely used to improve the quality of perioperative care. However, clinicians continue to debate the clinical effectiveness of this tool. METHODS: Prospective analysis of data from the International Surgical Outcomes Study (ISOS), an international observational study of elective in-patient surgery, accompanied by a systematic review and ...

KOL-Index: 33 BACKGROUND: The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted routine hospital services globally. This study estimated the total number of adult elective operations that would be cancelled worldwide during the 12 weeks of peak disruption due to COVID-19. METHODS: A global expert response study was conducted to elicit projections for the proportion of elective surgery that would be cancelled or postponed ...

KOL-Index: 21 BACKGROUND: The Clavien-Dindo classification is perhaps the most widely used approach for reporting postoperative complications in clinical trials. This system classifies complication severity by the treatment provided. However, it is unclear whether the Clavien-Dindo system can be used internationally in studies across differing healthcare systems in high- (HICs) and low- and middle-income ...

KOL-Index: 19 BACKGROUND: Respiratory complications are an important cause of postoperative morbidity. We aimed to investigate whether continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) administered immediately after major abdominal surgery could prevent postoperative morbidity. METHODS: PRISM was an open-label, randomised, phase 3 trial done at 70 hospitals across six countries. Patients aged 50 years or older ...

KOL-Index: 10 BACKGROUND: Results from retrospective studies suggest that use of neuromuscular blocking agents during general anaesthesia might be linked to postoperative pulmonary complications. We therefore aimed to assess whether the use of neuromuscular blocking agents is associated with postoperative pulmonary complications. METHODS: We did a multicentre, prospective observational cohort study. ...

KOL-Index: 2 Incidence of Postoperative Pulmonary Complications (PPCs) varies from 2% to 19%, according to the population under examination and the criteria used to define pulmonary complications. There is no univocal definition of PPCs. Usually physicians associate atelectasis, respiratory insufficiency, pneumonia, bronchospasm, necessity to reintubate. Moreover the evaluation of risk factors has become ...

KOL-Index: 2 During general anesthesia, functional residual capacity (FRC) is reduced. If the FRC is lower than the minimum volume required to maintain the opening of the airways, there is a derecruitment of the lung parenchyma, leading to the phenomenon of expiratory flow limitation (EFL).The Driving Pressure (DP) is the difference between the plateau pressure (Pplateau) and the Positive End-Expiratory ...

KOL-Index: 2 INTRODUCTION: The application of novel technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and telemedicine in anesthesiology could play a role in transforming the future of health care. In the present review we discuss the current applications of AI and telemedicine in anesthesiology and perioperative care, exploring their potential influence and the possible hurdles. ...
KOL-Index: 2 During general anesthesia a reduction of Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) was observed. The reduction of FRC could imply that respiratory system closing capacity (CC) exceeds the FRC and leads to a phenomenon called expiratory flow limitation (EFL). Positive End-Expiratory Pressure (PEEP) test is a validated method to evaluate the presence of EFL during anesthesia. Aim of the study will be ...
