  10. 10. Problem dimension • Membership Audit, American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Inc., Spring 1993. • survey of members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) • 48.7 % of members perform their aesthetic surgery in an office surgical facility. • Office-based surgery (OBS) accounts for 10 million of all elective procedures performed in the United States double from a decade ago. Although there are no good national registries to accurately determine the amount of surgery done in office, the projections have ranged from 17-24% of all elective ambulatory surgery • AHA.Trends affecting hospitals and health systems May 2005. AHA TrendWatch ChartBook 2009. Available at:http://www.aha.org/aha/trendwatch/chartbook/2009/chart2-9.pdf. (Accessed May 12, 2009)

  14. 14. Specific conditions that warrant special care when providing anesthesia or sedation outside the operating room • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Patient unable to cooperate, e.g. severe intellectually disability Severe gastroesophageal reflux Medical conditions predisposing patients to reflux, e.g. gastroparesis secondary to diabetes mellitus Orthopnea Severe increased intracranial pressure Decreased level of consciousness/depression of protective airway reflexes Known difficult intubation Dental, oral, craniofacial, neck or thoracic abnormalities that could compromise the airway Presence of respiratory tract infection or unexplained fever Obstructive sleep apnea Morbid obesity Procedures limiting access to the airway Lengthy, complex or painful procedures Uncomfortable position Prone position Acute trauma Extremes of age
  15. 15. inappropriate OBA patients • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • unstable ASA 3 or greater recent MI in past 6 months severe cardiomyopathy uncontrolled HTN brittle or poorly controlled diabetes active multiple sclerosis acute substance abuse (drugs and alcohol) MH history severe morbid obesity (BMI >35, if equipment and stretcher size is limited), or morbid obesity (BMI >30 with poorly controlled comorbidities) severe COPD/ obstructive sleep apnea, pacemaker or AICD end-stage renal disease sickle cell disease patient on transplant list dementia (not oriented) psychologically unstable (rage/anger problems), Recent stroke within 3 months • • myasthenia gravis lack of adult escort
  16. 16. Location/space requirements for nonoperating room anesthesia • Adequate size with good access to the patient • Uncluttered floor space • An operating table, trolley or chair which can be readily tilted into Trendelenburg position • Adequate lighting including emergency lighting • Sufficient electrical outlets including clearly marked electrical outlets connected to an emergency back-up power source • Suitable clinical area for recovery of the patient which must include oxygen, suction, resuscitation drugs and equipment • Emergency back-up call system to summon assistance from the main operating room
  17. 17. LockAlert Automatic Relocking with a motion sensor prevents the cart from locking while in use but automatically relocks it when left unattended. The system includes an adjustable timer and rechargeable batteries Keypad with Display (LockAlert IV)* allows multiple operators to have unique entry codes and can be enhanced with keyless narcotic drawers and/or auditing. This comprehensive system includes automatic relocking and keypadaccessible manager and diagnostic routines
  18. 18. • Lightweight aluminum construction, proprietary self-closing drawer slides and multiple caster options. • Complete customization available, including multiple colors, drawer sizes and accessories. • Available Entry Management system including AutoRelock, Audit Trail, ID Card Reader, Proximity Reader, Keyless Narcotic Drawer, 250 Users/ Supervisors. • Extended base for maximum stability
  19. 19. FSC Handbook Shands Florida Surgery Center: instructions for residents • Anesthesia Carts • Take a minute to review the cart and supplies. • All carts are set up with the same supplies in the same place in each room. • Anesthesia carts are stocked nightly by an anesthesia tech and NOT in between every case. • Keys can be obtained from Tammy Thomas, the FSC anesthesia tech. You can also ask the charge nurse or another CRNA to open the cart for you in the morning so you can set up. • Laryngoscope blades are stored in the carts in the rooms and additional blades can be found in the anesthesia work room. There is a container for used laryngoscope blades and reusable LMAs on the sides of each anesthesia cart. Limit opening multiple ETT’s, LMA’s. If you end up not using an opened, nonlubricated ETT, please place a date and time on the package and store in cart.
  20. 20. DEPARTMENT OF ANESTHESIOLOGY University of Florida • Stocking Anesthesia Carts and/or Emergency Carts • Anesthesia carts are standardized throughout the operating suite, radiology suite, and labor and delivery. • A list of all items to be included on these carts is used to restock them each day. • The drugs are checked once a month and outdated drugs are replaced. • Sharps disposal containers with small openings in the top, are well marked and • • • everyone is instructed to use them. They are easily accessible on the top of each cart. Florida law requires sharps containers be dated and not in service for more than 30 days. The containers on the anesthesia carts are exempt from the dating requirement because of frequent turnover. There are no emergency carts, per se, in the operating room area since an anesthesia cart from the involved room would be utilized. There are special carts for pediatric, cardiac, burn unit, MRI, OB, X-ray and cysto.
  21. 21. FSC Handbook Shands Florida Surgery Center: II • Many cases are done with an LMA. • Each OR should have one size 3, 4, and 5 LMA. • Additional LMAs are located in the anesthesia workroom and on the side of the anesthesia supply cart. • Difficult Airway Cart • This cart is located outside of OR 1 and 2 near the OR code cart. It is different from the typical Shands UF difficult airway cart. In addition, a glidescope is available next to the difficult airway cart. • Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this equipment.

  35. 35. Anesthesiologist(s) . . . and not only, other consultants as well • The National Confidential Enquiry into perioperative deaths (UK) found that the number of yearly procedures performed by some consultant endoscopists was too low to ensure proficiency and skill. It recommended that competency in endoscopy should be assured by national guidelines. – Scoping our practice 2004 ,pub. by the National Confidential Enquiry into Patient Outcome and Death(NCEPOD),Epworth House, 25 City Road, London EC1Y 1AA . • No such recommendations exist for anesthesiologists, however, whose competency is simply assumed by the specialist diploma…..think about the skills of many Direttori/Primari…………
  36. 36. NORA special skills • NORA requires special skills and attitudes – among 25 neuroanesthesiologists, only 3 were found to administer anesthesia with the magnet inside the operating room intrinsically recognizing the need for a higher level of technical skills. – Archer DP, McTaggart Cowan RA, Falkenstein RJ, et al. Intraoperative mobile magnetic resonance imaging for craniotomy lengthens the procedure but does not increase morbidity. Can J Anesth 2002; 49:420426 • Nontechnical skills are also important since NORA also stresses other qualities, like task management, team-working capability and coordination, situation awareness, and decision-making. – Fletcher, G.,Flin, R.,McGeorge, P et al. Anaesthetists' Non-Technical Skills (ANTS): evaluation of a behavioural marker system. Br. J. Anaesth. 2003; 90:580-588. • Since NORA involves special risks and difficulties, anaesthetists that are unsafe due either to a lack of knowledge and skills or old age need to be identified – Atkinson RS. The problem of the unsafe anaesthetist. Br J Anaesth 1994;73:29–30. – Katz JD. Issues of concern for the aging anesthesiologist. Anesth Analg 2001;92:1487–1492.

  38. 38. • Anesthesia is a discipline that requires the constant vigilance of well trained and experienced providers; safety derives from high-level dedicated care, teamwork,and rapid availability of physicians, especially during medical crises. • Clinical evidence supports the anesthesiologist-led anesthesia care team as the safest and most costeffective method of delivering anesthesia. – Death and failure to rescue were more frequent when care was not directed by anesthesiologists • However…….Sedation cannot be restricted to anesthesiologists.
  39. 39. Guidelines for sedation by non anesthesiologists • ASA practice guidelines for sedation and analgesia by non-anesthesiologists.American Society of Anesthesiologists Task Force on Sedation and Analgesia by NonAnesthesiologists. Anesthesiology 2002; 96:1004–1017.
  40. 40. MAC • Monitored Anesthesia Care does not describe the continuum of depth of sedation, rather it describes “a specific anesthesia service in which an anesthesiologist has been requested to participate in the care of a patient undergoing a diagnostic or therapeutic procedure.” • From Stand by to GA!
  41. 41. main questions • What would happen when a patient’s condition abruptly changes » or • the patient moves to another stage of sedation? • Who would be responsible for complications? • every patient may become unstable, every single sedation analgesic given outside the operating room should be done by • one anesthesiologist/patient/unit of time • the anaesthesiologist should be an experienced intensivist should a crisis occur.
  42. 42. Equipment in nonoperating room anesthesia • Old equipment is often kept in NORA areas – New anesthesiologists may be unfamiliar with it – Machines may no longer meet standards – Since such equipment is not used on a daily basis, it has to be carefully checked before each use and a program of maintenance should be instituted. The same considerations apply for monitors.
  43. 43. Equipment and machines in NORA • It is important that the equipment and machines used are maintained, tested and inspected on a regular basis and not become a repository for obsolete equipment (www.asahq.org/publicationsAndServices/ma chineobsolescense.pdf
  44. 44. Location and equipment • Wherever the sedation or anesthetic is performed, appropriate resuscitative equipment and medications for cardiopulmonary resuscitation must be immediately available • ASA.Guidelines for non operating room anesthetizing locations.Http:/www.asahq.org/publicationsAnd Services/sgstoc.htm • Capnography and pulse oximetry are invaluable in a setting where patient observation is limited (e.g. darkened room) or with limited access to the patient (e.g. radiation oncology,MRI…).
  45. 45. • the standard of anesthetic care does not decrease because of venue change
  46. 46. ASA guidelines for OBA • • • • 1.Adequate professional and administrative staff, as well as housekeeping and maintenance personnel. 2.Preoperative evaluation with necessary tests and consultations as medically indicated. 3.The development of an anesthesia plan acceptable to the patient, the administration or medical direction of same, as well as the discharge of the patient remain physician responsibilities. 4.Patients who receive other than unsupplemented local anesthesia must be discharged with a responsible adult and provided written postoperative and follow-up instructions. • Because the office facilities vary considerably, anesthesiologists must ensure that the facility is adequately equipped, with the following as a minimum: • 5.Sufficient space and electrical outlets plus adequate illumination must be provided, including backup power (this is listed first because space is something for which anesthesiologists frequently must fight in the office as well as the hospital or ASF). 6.A reliable source of oxygen adequate for the length of the procedure plus a backup supply, the latter to be at least equivalent to an E cylinder, and the ability to administer positive pressure ventilation. 7.Emergency cart with defibrillator and appropriate drugs. 8.A reliable source of motor-driven suction. 9.If inhaled anesthetics are to be used, an anesthesia machine equivalent to that of the hospital operating room and a system for scavenging waste anesthetic gas must be available. 10.Basic monitoring of oxygenation (pulse oximetry), ventilation (minute ventilation for general anesthesia and capnography for intubation), circulation (blood pressure every 5 min and continuous electrocardiogram display), and temperature (when clinically significant changes in temperature are intended, anticipated, or suggested) is essential. 11.All applicable building and safety codes and facility standards must be observed and federal, state, and local laws obeyed. • • • • • •
  47. 47. Equipment/monitoring requirements for nonoperating room anesthesia • Appropriate (for deep sedation, general anesthesia and a cardiorespiratory emergency) Immediately available • Regularly serviced (service date indicated on the equipment) • Same standard as in the operating room (minimum pulse oximetry, endtidal capnography, blood pressure, electrocardiogram and temperature) • Alarms activated (with appropriate settings) and sufficiently audible • Airway gas with the recognized safety devices (e.g. indexed gas connection system, reserve supply of oxygen, oxygen analyzer, oxygen supply failure alarm, multiple gas analyzer, a volatile anesthetic agent monitor, a breathing system disconnection alarm and a scavenging system) • Anesthesia work cart stocked to operating-room standard – – – – Including: appropriate anesthetic and resuscitation drugs, airway management equipment, a self-inflating hand resuscitator bag range of intravenous equipment • Suction ( be sure it reaches the patient….) • Ready access to a defibrillator and a fully stocked emergency cart

  55. 55. How to proceed • anesthetic and monitoring equipment check • Make a plan :sedation only.sedation+analgesia ,light,deep,GA • be prepared for a change in procedure. – It is my personal opinion that sedation and analgesia with spontaneous respiration requires greater skills and experience than GA with airway control. – Monitored anesthesia care for disabled children is much less expensive in the dental rehabilitation office than GA in the operating room, but more sentinel events have been reported • All data should be obtained during the procedure, especially when the anesthesiologist is away from the patient; • this may require remote monitoring, special extension tubing, among other means. • be prepared for bad surprises, including sudden movement of the patient, allergies, anaphylactic shock, need for vasopressors.
  56. 56. Pre prepared…..be prepared • Pre prepared syringes: – Atropine – Effortil – Midazolam – Fentanyl – Propofol?? – Clonidine(catapresan) – Electrolytes – ???specific for the procedure???
  57. 57. Special problems of NORA • • • • • • remote locations limited working space electrical interference with monitors and phones lighting and temperature inadequacies lack of skilled personnel, drugs, and supplies. Noises …..are unsettling for the patient and disturb the anesthesiologist. As alarm • recognition occurs 34% of the time under ideal conditions [76], noisy areas like MRI centers make sound recognition and alarm perception very difficult. A presumed reason is that many alarms have similar sounds [77]..

Postoperative surveillance/transportation • Almost all the potentially preventable office-based injuries result from adverse respiratory events in the recovery or postoperative periods; therefore, strict surveillance should be exercised until full recovery. • During transportation all the equipment necessary for a safe journey should be at hand. • The ideal recovery area should be ‘near’ the location where the patient was treated. The safe solution is to place patients in the postanesthesia care unit (PACU) or recovery room, as for surgical patients.
  60. 60. Measures of outcome • Critical incidents may be more frequent in NORA; emergency treatment of airways is paradigmatic [90]. • The availability of a difficult intubation cart in the ICU or PACU that can be called upon for rescue would be optimal, but distant locations should have their emergency trolley with a reasonable choice of airways. • Since outcome is influenced by care quality specific protocols should be adopted for NORA and personnel organized accordingly. • NORA activities require time, which means adequate staffing: consider how many NORA activities should be covered every day. • An invitation is being made to schedule fixed days for different tasks in order to organize the anesthesia services.
  61. 61. Some quality indicators • a. death, cardiac or respiratory arrest • b. unplanned re-intubation • c. central nervous system or peripheral nervous system deficit appearing within two days of anesthesia • d. myocardial infarction within two days of anesthesia • e. pulmonary edema within one day of anesthesia • f. aspiration pneumonia • g. anaphylaxis or adverse drug reactions • h. post dural puncture headache within four days of spinal or epidural anesthesia • i. dental injury • j. eye injury • k. surgical infection rate • l. excessive blood loss • m.unplanned admission to a hospital or other acute care facility
  62. 62. Quality indicators II Review of quality indicators, to include measures of patient satisfaction. • The quality improvement plan should include at least an annual review and check of anesthesia equipment to ensure compliance with current safety standards and the standards for the release of waste anesthetic gases. • For each office facility at which anesthesia is provided on a regular or ongoing basis, facility quality improvement reviews should be conducted. The reviews should be performed by a group that includes, at a minimum, the medical director, a representative of the anesthesiologists currently providing patient care and a representative of the operating room or recovery nursing staff. The frequency of the reviews would be appropriate for the number of procedures performed, but they should be conducted at least annually and result in written minutes and conclusions

  70. 70. Conclusion The risk and safety of anesthesia at remote locations: the US closed claims analysis .Julia Metzner, Karen L. Posner and Karen B. Domino.Current Opinion in Anaesthesiology 2009,22:502–508 • Analysis of closed claims suggests that administration of anesthesia and sedation at remote locations is associated with a significant risk of adverse effects. In spite of the relatively noninvasive nature of the procedures, our analysis suggests that anesthesia at remote locations, particularly those involving MAC, represents a growing area of liability for the anesthesiologist. Knowledge of the pharmacokinetic properties of sedative/analgesic drugs, careful monitoring using ASA standards, including continuous monitoring of respiration by capnography, and vigilance can aid in minimizing the risk of permanent injury to the patient. In addition, general anesthesia with endotracheal intubation may be safer than deep sedation in some patients and procedures
  71. 71. • These findings emphasize the seriousness of the preanesthetic assessment and the need to identify pts at risk for cardiac,respiratory and airway issues

Girshin M, Shapiro V, Rhee A, Ginsberg S, Inchiosa MA Jr. • Department of Anesthesiology, Metropolitan Hospital Medical Center, New York, NY 100129, USA. m_girshin@yahoo.com • A total of 47,389 anesthetics have been administered to pediatric patients in the Montefiore Medical Center between February 1998 and September 2007, of which 11,700 (25%) were administered for procedures performed outside the OR. • 3 deaths from general anesthesia occurring in the MRI suite, the resulting non-OR mortality rate at our institution was approximately 1 in 3900. Comparatively, in the same period, our mortality rate for procedures performed intraoperatively under general anesthesia was 1 in 7138. • Therefore, there is almost a 2-fold increased risk in mortality associated with non-OR versus OR anesthetics at our institution. • CONCLUSION: Our analysis shows that the administration of anesthesia in MRI suite possesses inherent risks that might be the same or even higher than those in the OR. .

  75. 75. Quality issues • Quality improvement should rely on raising the standards of every location where sedation and anesthesia are possible to operating room standards. • In the meantime, the recommendations taken from the ASA guidelines for NORA locations should be followed and implemented..
  76. 76. Conclusion • NORA means challenges • providing care for more medically complex patients while adapting to fewer resources, with lack of support system commonly available in the operating room • No anesthesia or sedation performed outside the operating room should be considered minor; it requires skill, experience, and organization. • Anesthetic needs should be evaluated from a safety point of view. • Patient preparation, consent, sedation, analgesia or GA should be performed utilizing the same standards as adopted for the operating room

  78. 78. Office-Based Surgery Practices in New York State • Effective July 14, 2009, physician offices that perform surgical or invasive procedures using more than mild sedation must be accredited by one of these agencies: • Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) • American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) • The Joint Commission (TJC) • Accreditation, though not the same as state regulation, is a way to ensure a level of standardization among office-based surgical practices with the goal of assuring quality of care and patient safety.
  79. 79. Consequences….. • Beginning July 14, 2009, a physician who is found to have operated in an unaccredited office is guilty of professional misconduct and risks his license. • “New York’s law has teeth,” …. • Some states that have mandated office oversight still don’t see much accreditation activity, but “in New York, people took notice because there was a penalty in the law,”
