Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Anesthetic agents were developed in the 1700s. The first research on exposure was not conducted until 1967. Exposure to anesthetic waste gases can be linked to minor issues, such as fatigue, or major issues, such as spontaneous abortion, congenital abnormalities, infertility, premature birth, cancer, renal disease, and liver disease. Perioperative staff members are exposed to anesthetic waste gases on a daily basis. They should be informed about their exposure, the facilities ability to manage their risk, anesthesia provider practice standards, clinical practice, and compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration Standards.
