Emergency laparotomy is associated with 6-10% of mortality rates in Australia, especially in elderly patients. In 2018, the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (RACS) and the Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) jointly piloted the ANZ Emergency Laparotomy Audit Quality Improvement (ANZELA-QI) and health service recruitment to the audit is increasing. In just three years, this project is estimated to have saved AUD$54 million per annum in bed days.
This session will explore:
Reduced risk of emergency laparotomy through measuring critical KPIs such as preoperative risk assessment, early recognition and treatment of sepsis, consultant surgeon and anaesthetist input, and greater
use of ICU
Results from Geelong, Victoria and ANZELA-QI audits throughout Australia
Utilising this data to reduce perioperative mortality by proactive management, risk assessment, greater recognition of when surgery is futile and can be avoided and optimization of end of life care
