Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Research provides support for unplanned perioperative hypothermia correlating with adverse events involving wound healing, mental status changes, pathophysiologies of cardiac and coagulopathy origin, and altered drug metabolism (ASPAN, 2004). Patient safety and quality care are the implied foci of this study whose purpose is to compare the effectiveness of the American Society of Peri-Anesthesia Nurses (ASPAN) Hypothermia Guideline in an adult receiving general anesthesia in an outpatient surgery setting with the current, usual treatment. The design is a before-after guasi-experimental design testing the hypotheses: (1) Implementation of the ASPAN Hypothermia Guideline will achieve a discharge tympanic temperature of 96.8F in equal to or less time than current "treatment as usual" achieves the present discharge temperature goal of 95F, (2) Implementation of the ASPAN Hypothermia Guideline will achieve a discharge tympanic temperature of 96.8F for equal to or less cost than current "treatment as usual" achieves the present discharge temperature goal of 95F. The methodology consists of two stages. During Stage I (pre-test) the tympanic temperatures of study participants will be measured and recorded at six points in time over the course of their outpatient surgery stay. Apart from the increased frequency of tympanic temperature measurement (two additional times) treatment as usual will be maintained during Stage I. During Stage II tympanic temperatures will continue to be measured as in Stage I. Additionally, the ASPAN Hypothermia Guideline will be implemented. Preliminary study findings are supporting the proposed hypotheses. Data analysis have been completed and reporting will be finalized prior to October 2006. The study conclusion being that in outpatient surgery patients receiving general anesthesia, implementation of the ASPAN Hypothermia Guideline will achieve a discharge tympanic temperature of 96.8F in equal to and less time and cost than current "treatment as usual" achieves the present discharge tympanic temperature goal of 95F.
