  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - Long-term prescribing of new oral anticoagulants
    • Abstract: Chin, Paul KL; Doogue, Matthew P
      Warfarin and the new oral anticoagulants are licensed for non-valvular atrial fibrillation and venous thromboembolism.

      The choice of anticoagulant depends on the characteristics of the patient and the medicine. Key considerations include patient adherence, kidney and liver function, and potential interactions with concomitant drugs. Dosing should accommodate these factors.

      Patients should be regularly monitored for bleeding, adherence to treatment, and changing comorbidities and concomitant drugs. Renal function should be checked at least annually.

      Other than idarucizumab for dabigatran, there are no widely available antidotes for the new oral anticoagulants. In a patient with normal renal and hepatic function, drug concentrations and anticoagulant effect are expected to diminish by over 90% after stopping treatment for 48 hours.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - Pain management in the opioid-tolerant patient
           undergoing day surgery
    • Abstract: Hall, Charlotte
      The rate of ambulatory surgery is increasing worldwide and the rate of patients receiving opioids for chronic non-cancer pain and cancer pain is rising. There is also a percentage of the population who are receiving opioids as part of an opioid substitution programme and individuals who may be abusing prescribed and non-prescribed opioids, which means that personnel working in these areas are more likely to encounter a patient who is opioid-tolerant.

      Evidence has shown that these patients benefit most from a multi-modal approach to postoperative analgesia in the day surgery setting, with a clear pain management plan that involves the multidisciplinary team. This includes the utilisation of opioid and non-opioid analgesia and regional techniques which will enhance their recovery and reduce side effects such as nausea, vomiting and sedation, which may delay discharge home and subsequent recovery.

      Adequate discharge planning is essential with education of the patient and communication with the GP, pain specialist, drug/alcohol team or addiction specialist to ensure a return to baseline opioid use as soon as possible.

      Keywords: Opioid tolerance, day surgery, multimodal analgesia, non-opioid analgesia, opioid analgesia.

  • Volume 15 Issue 2 - An introduction to clinical mindfulness
    • Abstract: Sharma, Divya-Jyoti
      As health care workers, there are many reasons why our minds are full. Along with the usual work-life balance struggles, we have responsibilities towards our patients. Caring for our patients when they are at their greatest periods of vulnerability is an absolute privilege. Sometimes we can forget, that in order to be able to look after our patients responsibly, we need to find coping mechanisms for our stress.

    • Abstract: Leggett, Gaye
      ADSNA chose a wonderful venue for its inaugural conference at Melbourne's Convention Centre South Wharf. Being successful with my scholarship application afforded me to stay at the luxurious Hilton South Wharf, which was connected to the Convention Centre so it made navigation (which is not my strongest point) very easy.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Showcasing the Flinders medical centre day of surgery
           admission unit
    • Abstract: Glitheroe, Bronwyn
      The Day of Surgery Admission Unit (DOSA) at Flinders Medical Centre (FMC), South Australia, has recently undergone redevelopment with the aim of providing a welcoming and patient-focused environment. The redesign followed the principles of lean thinking which focused on the 'value added' steps for the patient and flow through the unit while removing the unnecessary steps. The aim was to make the patient journey as smooth and safe as possible. Our unit caters for patients coming in for elective surgery. For patients in for day surgery, DOSA may be the only place they'll see at the hospital. For other patients, our unit is just the start of their admission: we provide the initial point of contact and prepare them for surgery. After surgery, they are recovered in the Post Anaesthetic Care Unit 1 (PACU 1), before being moved to either a short-stay or long-stay ward.

    • Abstract: Leary, Celia
      How nice it was to attend the 10th IAAS Congress on Ambulatory Surgery in Budapest. I particularly enjoyed catching up with colleagues that I have not seen for a few years and re-establishing our friendship. It was only in January when I saw the abstract date had been extended that I made the decision to submit one and was delighted when it was accepted as I really wanted to share with colleagues my experience (before retiring) of being involved in the building of a new hospital within the Medica Centre complex.

  • Volume 12 Issue 2 - Chronic venous insufficiency: Current treatment
           modalities
    • Abstract: Sandison, Sheralee; Spark, JIan
      Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition of the venous system of the lower limbs with presentations ranging from unsightly varicose veins to venous ulceration. Traditionally sufferers of CVI with venous hypertension from superficial venous incompetence were treated surgically or managed conservatively with compression therapy. In recent times venous ablation techniques have developed, offering less invasive, safe, effective alternatives to surgery with comparable recurrence rates. Techniques conducted under local anaesthetic and ultrasound guidance include thermal, chemical and mechano-chemical ablation. One of the greatest benefits to come from the developments of endovenous ablation is the potential to treat previously untreatable superficial incompetence in the elderly population, those at greatest risk of venous ulceration.

      I have not attended an IAAS meeting since my report in the last ADSNA Journal. However, I do want to take this opportunity to remind everyone about the International Congress in Budapest from 5 to 8 May 2013 with a registration fee for nurses of only 200 euros and accommodation ranging from 45 to 180 euros per night. The social program is fantastic, with dinner at the Opera House and a banquet with horse show and a band made up of doctors (Dr Rock).

      Perioperative hyperglycaemia is a common phenomenon affecting patients both with and without a known prior history of diabetes. Hyperglycaemia confers an increased risk of perioperative morbidity and mortality, mostly from infection and cardiovascular events. Silent ischaemia, coronary artery disease and autonomic neuropathy are common among patients with diabetes. These are important considerations as nearly one-fifth of surgical patients have diabetes or glucose impairment and a person with diabetes has a 50% chance of undergoing surgery at some point in his or her lifetime.

  • Volume 12 Issue 1 - Conducting research off the side of your desk: A case
           study
    • Abstract: Jong, Ann; Shaw, Elissa; Behrens, Heidi; Ellis, Isabelle
      Clinical nursing research is one of the core elements on which evidence-based nursing is founded1. As nurses we are expected to be familiar with the concept of research, know how to read a research paper and know how to incorporate the research evidence into our clinical practice. The "ANMC Competency Standards for Registered Nurses" Critical Thinking and Analysis domain element "Practices within an evidence-based framework" give us an unequivocal imperative to participate in research. However, for many nurses, the thought of conducting their own clinical research is daunting and so it was for us: two novice nurse researchers.

           change
    • Abstract: Latham, Gail; Finch, Beth
      The conference was held in Sydney's Masonic Centre on 25 August, with approximately 240 delegates attending from all over New South Wales. Sydney turned on a lovely, end-of-winter, sunny day. As always, the venue was great with a welcome 'cuppa' and friendly greetings upon arrival for an early morning registration. There was lots of talk and laughter as many of the delegates met up with both colleagues and old friends.

  • Volume 11 Issue 3 - Clinical paper: Management of acute postoperative pain
           in Australian hospitals - room for improvement
    • Abstract: Taylor, Donna R; Loh, Shwu Fen; Mulligan, Kathleen T; Pulver, Lisa K; Tompson, Anna J; Wai, Angela
      Objective: To describe a quality improvement initiative in the management of acute postoperative pain (APOP )in Australian hospitals. Design: Multicentre, cross-sectional, retrospective inpatient medical record review and post-discharge surveys of patients and their general practitioners (GPs), conducted between October 2006 and October 2007, before and after targeted educational intervention. Setting: Sixty-two Australian hospitals, representing the spectrum of regional/remote to principal referral and including private and specialist hospitals. Participants: Up to 50 adults undergoing emergency/elective surgery per hospital, in each of baseline and follow-up phases. Outcome measures: Documented preoperative education; pain and sedation assessment; safe and effective analgesic prescribing and communication of a pain management plan to patients/carers and their GPs at discharge. Results: Two thousand, seven hundred and four baseline (2780 follow-up) patients were included. Documentation of preoperative education regarding postoperative pain was noted for 31% (44%) of patients. Fifty-seven per cent (76%) of patients had at least one pain score documented in the postoperative data collection period. Of patients prescribed analgesia, 68% (74%) were prescribed regular paracetamol and 23% (18%) only "as needed" analgesia. Of patients prescribed opioids, 50% (61%) had at least one documented sedation score and 87% (90%) were prescribed an antiemetic agent. Discharge pain management plans were documented for 26% (40%) of patients and of these, 86% (87%) were communicated to patients and 71% (77%) to GPs. Conclusions: Targeted interventions including one-on-one educational visiting and feedback of comparative data improved some key outcome measures: performance and documentation of preoperative education, postoperative pain and adverse event assessment and discharge communication with patients and GPs.

  • Volume 11 Issue 3 - Understanding normal and abnormal colonic motility
    • Abstract: Dinning, Phil G; Arkwright, John W
      Functional colonic disorders of the human digestive tract, such as irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and faecal incontinence, cause significant societal burdens because of their impact upon quality of life and health care systems. While abnormal gut motility is often associated with the functional disorders, monitoring, defining and interpreting such activity is difficult. This report highlights some recent developments that have been made in the field of colonic manometry for monitoring contractile activity throughout the entire length of the human colon in both health and disease.
