Synopsis:
Since its inception in 1984, the American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses (ASPAN) Standards of Perianesthesia Nursing Practice has provided a framework for the expanding scope of care for a diverse patient population across all perianesthesia settings. The Standards are reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis and are republished biennially. Each revised edition incorporates current evidence-based practice, emerging regulatory requirements and reflects changing technology and nursing practice. The 2017-2018 edition of the ASPAN Standards contains principles of safety and ethics in perianesthesia practice, perianesthesia practice standards, practice recommendations, position statements, resources from partnering organizations and interpretive statements which provide clarity and definition to key elements of the standards. New content in this publication includes an updates to the practice recommendation for care of the adult patient with obstructive sleep apnea, as well as the prevention of unwanted sedation in the adult patient. New position statements include a position statement on alarm management, a position statement on acuity based staffing for Phase I and a position statement on air quality and occupational hazard exposure prevention. A new resource has been added to provide guidance for a perianesthesia orientation timeline. Each edition of the ASPAN Standards serves perianesthesia nurses as an invaluable resource and provides guidance and support for the expanding scope of perianesthesia nursing practice across the care continuum.
