Patient Safety Highlights 2015 - Perioperative Pathways for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Avoiding Complications After Ambulatory Surgery

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

Screening tools have become more accurate in prediction of postoperative complications based on disease-entity (sleep apnea and comorbidities) and procedure-specific aspects.  Through a review of key elements of preoperative polysomnography and CPAP testing, learners will be able to develop a process for fast-track sleep apnea testing process. The effectiveness of preoperative CPAP on avoiding complications will be reviewed. The effectiveness of opioid sparing techniques, specific anesthetic agents, neuromuscular monitoring and reversal agents will be reviewed.  In summary, the learner will be able to identify the SLEEP APNEA PERIOPERATIVE PATHWAYS that take into account the preoperative screening or polysomnography results as well as the respiratory consequences of intraoperative interventions. Additionally, the clinician will review the limitations and effectiveness of postoperative monitoring and CPAP therapy in reducing complications in sleep apnea patients.
