Introduction: Postoperative hypothermia is a common complication of orthopaedic surgery associated with increased morbidity. We identified the incidence and risk factors for postoperative hypothermia across orthopaedic surgical procedures. Methods: A total of 3,822 procedures were reviewed. Hypothermia was defined as temperature <36.0°C. Inciden...

A keystone of operating room (OR) management is proper OR allocation to optimize access, safety, efficiency, and throughput. Access is important to surgeons, and overlapping surgery may increase patient access to surgeons with specialized skill sets and facilitate the training of medical students, residents, and fellows. Overlapping surgery is comm...

While a number of studies have examined efficiency metrics in the operating rooms (ORs), there are few studies addressing non-operating room anesthesia (NORA) metrics. The standards established in the realm of OR studies may not apply to ongoing investigations of NORA efficiency. We hypothesize that there are significant differences in these common...

The operating room (OR) management literature tends to view management problems as having finite solutions and assumes that equilibrium exists in the intricate encounters that occur every day. In this article, we review complexity theory and assess its applicability to the strategic, tactical, and operational issues facing OR managers. By building...

Although transesophageal echocardiography is routinely performed at our institution, there is no easy way to document the procedure in the electronic medical record and generate a bill compliant with reimbursement requirements. We present the results of a quality improvement project that used agile development methodology to incorporate intraoperat...
Article
Some research has found increased incidence of medical errors in teaching hospitals at the beginning of the academic year and have termed this the “July Phenomenon.”Background Our primary hypothesis was that the “July Phenomenon” for anesthesiology and surgical residents might manifest itself as operational inefficiency, measured by monthly total...
Article
The goal of this study was to document the relationship between BMI and the components of bariatric surgical operating room (OR) time. The Stanford Translational Research Integrated Database Environment identified all patients who underwent laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass procedures at Stanford University Medical Center between May 2008 and N...
