Perioperative fever has multiple possible etiologies, including infections such as pneumonia, fungal infections, central-line associated infections, and urinary infections. By understanding the typical time frame and common risk factors for each etiology, hospitalists and other perioperative consultants can develop a differential diagnosis for perioperative fever. The following module will provide a general approach for determining the differential diagnosis in patients with a perioperative fever, as well as an outline of the diagnostic and treatment modalities.

Although general internists and subspecialists are familiar with prescribing and managing medications in typical outpatient and inpatient venues, the perioperative period represents a challenging and often unfamiliar setting.

Anticoagulant medications are commonly prescribed to patients in the United States for a number of medical problems. Interruptions in anticoagulation can result in severe adverse outcomes, including permanent disability and death, from arterial and venous thromboembolism. These medications, however, can also be associated with serious perioperative bleeding events. In fact, both bleeding and thromboembolic risks are amplified in the periprocedural period. This module addresses the risk of thromboembolism associated with periprocedural interruption of anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation, a mechanical heart valve, or a history of venous thromboembolism.

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.
