Only in the 20th century did the increasing scope of surgery and unremitting efforts to reduce the number of deaths and complications to a minimum lead inevitably to the realization that a sound understanding of physiology is as important as a thorough grounding in anatomic relationships. In the 21st century, there is increasing interest in evidence-based preoperative and postoperative care and the application of scientific knowledge and compassion to restore the patient to a normal physiologic state and equilibrium as readily as possible after minor or major surgery. The discipline of surgical critical care represents the ultimate merging of the art of surgery with the science of physiology.
Professional Reference articles are designed for health professionals to use. You may find the Common Postoperative Complications article more useful, or one of our other health articles. NICE has issued rapid update guidelines in relation to many of these. This guidance is changing frequently. Postoperative complications may either be general or specific to the type of surgery undertaken and should be managed with the patient's history in mind. Common general postoperative complications include postoperative fever, atelectasis, wound infection, embolism and deep vein thrombosis DVT. The highest incidence of postoperative complications is between one and three days after the operation.
Ensure continuous monitoring is maintained and recorded hourly of: Cardiorespiratory; Blood pressure; SpO2; Skin temperature. Administer IV fluids as prescribed. If an arterial line is present, fluids must be continued during transfer to theatre. Check consent form has been completed for surgery and the administration of blood and blood products.

Theatre will phone NICU when they are ready for the baby and will also offer to provide an escort with an orderly. This avoids unnecessary waiting time in theatre reception.

Preoperative care refers to health care provided before a surgical operation. The aim of preoperative care is to do whatever is right to increase the success of the surgery. At some point before the operation the health care provider will assess the fitness of the person to have surgery. This assessment should include whatever tests are indicated , but not include screening for conditions without an indication.
