Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Clinical Issue: There has been a significant rise in adolescent obesity which leads to many other health complications. Gastric banding, an alternative weight loss method, has proven effective in adults and is now being trialed in adolescents. If we can help decrease obesity at a younger age, further health issues may be avoided. Description of team: Weight management team, nursing staff, surgical staff, and anesthesia staff are all involved in this multidisciplinary approach. Preparation and Planning: Nemours weight management program evaluates each patient with strict adherence to guidelines regarding their history of morbid obesity. Fourteen to 17 year olds that are at least 100 pounds overweight and also have current co-morbidities are considered for the program. Implementation: After intensive medical, psychological, nutritional, and exercise evaluations are completed, patients undergo laparoscopic gastric banding to reduce the size of the stomach and decrease hunger. Outcome: A strict diet must be followed after surgery which slowly reintroduces solid food. Exercise is also very important. Weight loss occurs quickly and health risks are decreased. Implications for Perioperative Nursing: Patient safety is paramount to provide safe care in the pediatric setting. Special equipment to support the patients weight and ensure safe positioning must be available.
