More and more hospitalists are now using point-of-care ultrasound as a bedside tool in the care of acutely ill patients, and the Society of Hospital Medicine is expanding its educational offerings to improve hospitalists’ point-of-care ultrasound skills. In addition to offering a hands-on workshop at the annual meeting, as well as a certification program, SHM has begun to offer online education. The Point-of-care Ultrasound Question bank provides an interactive online educational experience for learners to assess their ability to apply knowledge through a series of questions in the context of common clinical cases and image interpretation challenges.

Pain is probably the most common presenting or associated symptom in patients in the hospital, and patients are often more concerned about being in pain than they are about the primary reason for admission. Pain is a completely subjective experience that is the consequence of the filtering, modulating, and distorting of the afferent nerve activity (i.e., nociceptive input) through the affective (i.e., limbic system) and cognitive processes unique to each individual. The following educational module discusses why postoperative pain requires treatment, outlines methods for performing a proper assessment of pain, provides strategies for utilizing patient-controlled analgesia safely and effectively, and summarizes the use of opioid and non-opioid analgesics in the postoperative setting to help hospitalists improve patients’ quality of recovery and life.

The Society of Hospital Medicine’s Center for Quality Improvement offers a unique opportunity for hospitalists to learn about quality improvement successes their colleagues are realizing at their home institutions. SHM’s Center for Quality Improvement will host a panel of two quality improvement enthusiasts to present about their quality improvement projects. These presenters will share what they have learned, strategies they have employed to overcome impediments to realizing their quality improvement objectives and review best practices for hospitalists and QI enthusiasts.

Surgical site infections (SSIs) are a major cause of postoperative illness, longer hospitalization, and increased healthcare costs, making the prevention and treatment of SSIs an important aspect of patient care for hospitalists. The following module outlines patient and procedural factors that increase the risk of SSIs, examines the basic principles of antimicrobial prophylaxis for SSI, reviews nonantibiotic interventions to lessen the risk of SSI, and outlines evaluation for and treatment of an SSI. In addition, a discussion of the controversy surrounding preoperative decolonization of Staphylococcus aureus is provided.

Current estimates indicate that 2 to 3 million Americans take anticoagulants for prevention of thromboembolism from venous thromboembolism, atrial fibrillation, or prosthetic heart valves. Invasive procedures are performed in as many as 250 000 patients taking anticoagulants on an annual basis in the United States. Consequently, management of anticoagulants in the perioperative period is a common and vexing challenge for physicians. Because not all patients are at the same risk of thromboembolism and not all procedures are associated with the same risk of bleeding, it is important for hospitalists to know how to weigh these risks in their patients. The purpose of this module is to review risk stratification for thromboembolism and bleeding associated with different thromboembolic disorders and invasive procedures.

Preoperative testing can provide valuable information to identify patients who are at high risk for perioperative complications and reduce perioperative morbidity and mortality; however, there is little benefit from routinely testing patients who are known to be at low risk. The objectives of preoperative testing are to identify patients who are at high risk for perioperative complications, assess the severity or stability of existing medical problems, and evaluate abnormal symptoms or signs detected during the preoperative assessment. This module discusses the common challenges and pitfalls of preoperative testing, describes how pretest probability influences the decision to order preoperative tests, and identifies appropriate indications for laboratory, radiologic, and other forms of preoperative test screening. The selection of appropriate screening tools to identify patients at high risk for specific perioperative complications and the use of post-test probability to select and interpret preoperative diagnostic testing is also examined.

The goal of anesthesia is to facilitate a surgical procedure both for patient and surgeon. Not only does an anesthesia team relieve and prevent pain and anxiety due to surgical procedures, but it also expedites the conduct of procedures and optimizes surgical conditions by preventing patient movement and ensuring hemodynamic stability. While some procedures require a small amount of sedation, others require general anesthesia and/or regional anesthesia. This module discusses the basic types of surgical anesthesia as well as the indications and contraindications for each. Additionally, the most commonly used medications will be reviewed, including mechanism of action and side effects. An overview of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Physical Classification Status System is presented along with considerations that may prompt an anesthesiologist to delay or cancel a surgical procedure.
