Coordinating perioperative care for the 'high risk' general surgical patient using risk prediction scoring (PDF 250 Kb)

Published- Jan 2016. Author - Shazia Hafiz.

Identifying 'high risk' (>5% mortality score) emergency general surgical patients early, allows appropriate perioperative care to be allocated by securing critical care beds and ensuring the presence of senior surgeons and senior anaesthetists intraoperatively. Scoring systems can be used to predict perioperative risk and coordinate resources perioperatively. Currently it is unclear which estimate of risk correlates with current resource deployment. A retrospective study was undertaken assessing the relationship between deployment of perioperative resources: senior surgeon, senior anesthetist and critical care bed.

Development and efficiency of dedicated upper limb trauma lists in a district general hospital (PDF 540 Kb)

Published- Jan 2016. Author - Daoud Makki.

The aim of this audit was to assess the impact of dedicated upper limb trauma lists on the hospital stay and satisfaction of patients treated operatively for upper limb injuries. In the first audit, we reviewed the date of 52 consecutive patients with upper limb injuries treated on the routine trauma lists. Accordingly, a new pathway of dedicated upper limb trauma lists was introduced whereby patients presenting with injuries were safely discharged home with written instructions regarding arrangements for surgery. The audit loop was then closed by collecting data of 78 consecutive patients treated using the new scheme. Dedicated upper limb trauma lists have reduced our in-patient stay without affecting the care and outcomes for our patients.
