Bariatric Surgery

http://www.aps-web.com

Because it is one of the fastest growing surgical practices in the United States, bariatric surgery is one of the fastest growing areas of liability claims for surgeons and facilities that provide such surgery. The growth in bariatric surgery and the relative newness of the most common procedures-laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding has only been available in the United States since 2001-has made it difficult for experienced providers to keep up with the demand for surgery. As a result, more and more procedures are being performed by providers who do not meet the best practice recommendations for credentialing bariatric surgeons, or in facilities that cannot meet the special needs of bariatric patients. This course addresses common questions and issues surrounding bariatric surgery from both a clinical and a risk reduction perspective.

Inguinal Hernia

http://www.aps-web.com

Up to 50% of inguinal hernia patients present with pain or neuralgia at 1 year post operation. As many as 10% of these patients report their pain as moderate to severe. Pain experienced after an inguinal hernia repair may be appropriate, given the nature of the operation. Too often, however, chronic pain suffered by hernia patients is caused by technical errors such as nerve damage at surgery or nerve entrapment in scar tissue. It can also be difficult to analyze the chronic pain after an inguinal hernia if the patients presenting pain has not been sufficiently evaluated. Using detailed medical illustrations and an interactive learning design, this toolkit provides practical tips for both surgeons and their supporting clinical teams to reduce the errors commonly associated with malpractice claims after inguinal hernia repairs. It examines patient factors as well as injuries to the groin nerves, bladder/bowel, vessels, and vas deferens/testicles that can occur during an inguinal hernia repair. The toolkit also provides team communication tips and information on how surgical support teams, including nurses, can appropriately assess patient risk. It also outlines tips to help nurses draw on their powers of influence and persuasion to help a surgeon understand risk concerns around a procedure.

Laparoscopic Error

http://www.aps-web.com

Regardless of the surgical procedure, laparoscopy adds risks that are associated with the endoscopic technique and instrumentation. These risks are reflected in the vascular and organ injuries attributed to needle and trocar entry. Experts expected that the rate of these injuries would reduce as surgeons and hospitals built expertise through volume of operations performed. However, no such trend has yet been recognized. Why not? The quandary is clear: on one hand, laparoscopy provides many benefits to patients, including shorter recovery times but on the other hand, surgeons must assess the risks, based on their levels of expertise. Patient factors should weigh heavily in the decision: for a riskier patient, performing a riskier procedure may be inadvisable. Using detailed medical illustrations and an interactive learning design, this toolkit uses a systems view to frame the common technical errors associated with laparoscopy. It also provides practical tips for both surgeons and their supporting clinical teams to reduce the errors commonly associated with malpractice claims after laparoscopy. The toolkit also provides team communication tips and information on how surgical support teams, including nurses, can appropriately assess patient risk. It also outlines tips to help nurses draw on their powers of influence and persuasion to help a surgeon understand risk concerns around a procedure.

Operative Vaginal Delivery

http://www.aps-web.com

The use of operative vaginal delivery techniques - episiotomy, forceps-assisted delivery, and vacuum-assisted delivery has declined in recent years. However, despite controversy about their use, there are clinical situations where each of these procedures is the best method to effect safe and healthy delivery. Therefore, each of these techniques has a place in the obstetric providers toolkit. This course discusses best practices in operative vaginal delivery. The fundamental mechanics of labor and delivery are discussed, along with indications for operative vaginal delivery and the performance and repair of episiotomy. Separate discussions of forceps and vacuum delivery emphasize the relationship between the normal forces of labor and the forces applied using the forceps or vacuum.

Procedural Sedation With Propofol for the Non-anesthesiolgist Provider

http://www.sedationconsulting.com/index.php?option=com_jevents&task=icalrepeat.detail&evid=75&Itemid=135

As an increasing number of procedures requiring sedation are done in the outpatient setting, Sedation Consulting has developed this course to help physicians and nurses involved in sedation administration to minimize the risks associated with the anesthesia or analgesia being provided for procedural sedation. This course is designed to introduce non-anesthesiologist providers to techniques to safely incorporate the use of hypnotic agents for procedural sedation for ambulatory surgery and office based practices. Increase patient satisfaction and margin of safety by decreasing the amount of sedatives required and by virtually eliminating post operative nausea and vomiting. Patients are at less risk when recovery time is significately decreased from hours to minutes. *With the use of P/K anesthesia technique PONV (post operative nausea and vomiting) is decreased to less than 1% or 0.6% without the use of anti-emetics, 30% less anesthetic is required, outliers are eliminated, patient safety and satisfaction are dramatically improved. Course Objectives At completion of this course participants should be able to: Dispel the myths and misinformation surrounding propofol administration by non-anesthesiologists Oversee and delegate the sedation administration Describe the standards and regulations as related to office based anesthesia and analgesia Describe and utilize the necessary monitoring and emergency equipment required Demonstrate airway management using multiple devices Describe related pharmacology of sedatives, reversal agents and emergency medications Describe appropriate monitoring and documentation Develop acceptable recovery & discharge protocols Faculty Dr. Barry Friedberg, a board certified anesthesiologist, recognized as a medical expert in anesthesia by the California Medical Board in addition to the legal profession. His expertise has been lent to a number of peer-reviewed medical journals for review. Dr. Friedberg is also a contributor to the letters to the editor section in several anesthesia and surgery journals. Dr. Friedberg is considered a pioneer in propofol/ketamine or PK anesthesia techniques What Participants Are Saying: "The practice of medicine requires a lifetime commitment to learning and flexibilty to provide the best care for our patients. Unfortunately, the practice of plastic surgery tends to be inflexible and focused on the use of general anesthesia which in my opinion is more for the surgeon’s convenience rather than the patient’s in many cases. As it has been my focus to perform natural aesthetic procedures which are safe, under local anesthesia with light sedation and with a quicker recovery, Dr. Friedberg’s contribution to my practice through his experience is truly appreciated." Amiya Prasad MD, Cosmetic Surgeon New York, NY "Barry Friedberg, MD (Anesthesiologist) has masterfully developed the PK Anestheisa concept and he has honed this technique to perfection. Take his course!" Robert A. Shumway, MD, FACS San Diego, CA

Reducing Error in the OR

http://www.aps-web.com

Surgical error is responsible for an estimated one out of every four recorded medical errors, taking thousands of lives and costing patients and insurers approximately $1.5 billion annually. Clinicians at every point in their careers are vulnerable to committing surgical errors, with most occurring in routine operations with experienced surgeons and nurses. In technically demanding surgeries in particular, studies show an estimated three major safety-compromising events occur in each case. Most of these errors that cause patient harm occur as a result of multiple individual events, spanning multiple phases of care, and involve multiple clinicians. Fortunately, an estimated 54-74% of surgically-related adverse events are preventable. The aim of this course is to help clinicians reduce surgical error by building awareness of the most common types of errors and the conditions under which they occur. The course also helps clinicians identify flawed systems that create error-prone environments and provides practical guidelines for eliminating common errors, such as preoperative checklists and postsurgical material inventories. Clinicians who complete this course will be able to do the following: Identify the primary issues with technical error in surgery and how they lead to adverse events. Learn the 15 common procedures that account for the majority of adverse events, and understand the errors that trigger them. Identify the factors that contribute to complexity and/or systems failures. Comprehend and explain the benefits of applying systems theory in the context of surgery. Discuss possible interventions to combat technical error.
