Development, Psychometric Evaluation and Validation of a Brief Measure of Emotional Preoperative Stress (B-MEPS) to Predict Moderate to Intense Postoperative Acute Pain British Journal of Anaesthesia. | Pubmed ID: 27799179 Preoperative stress might influence postoperative pain, thereby, it is desirable to assess it more precisely. Thus, we developed and evaluated the psychometric properties of a brief measure of emotional preoperative stress (B-MEPS) index using Item Response Category Characteristic Curves. We validated and assessed whether the B-MEPS can predict moderate to intense acute postoperative pain (MIAPP).
Perioperative Mortality Related to Anesthesia Within 48 h and Up to 30 days Following Surgery: A Retrospective Cohort Study of 11,562 Anesthetic Procedures Journal of Clinical Anesthesia. | Pubmed ID: 29909205 Studying postoperative in-hospital mortality is crucial to the understanding of the perioperative process failures and to the implementation of strategies to improve patient outcomes. We intend to classify the causes of perioperative deaths up to 30 days after procedures requiring anesthesia and to evaluate the risk factors for early (48 h) or late (30 day) mortality.
