Optimizing the Surgical Patient
In this session, we will review the evidence for preoperative optimization of the elective surgical patient. We will discuss the data behind BMI cut-offs, smoking cessation, frailty assessments, and other modifiable risk factors and their impact on postoperative outcomes. We will also review best practices for individual surgeons and institutional protocols regarding preoperative optimization.
- Identify clear relationships, using current data, between modifiable patient risk factors (such as weight, smoking status, diabetes) and postoperative outcomes.
- Describe best practices for effective pre-operative optimization for modifiable risk factors.
- Evaluate the role for institutional involvement in the implementation of preoperative optimization strategies in your practice.
