Appendices to the Guidelines of the Practice of Anesthesia. Poor communication between the patient and health care staff were some of the reasons for the above findings. Liberal pre‐operative fasting routines have been implemented in most countries. However, its high lipid content slows gastric emptying in comparison with clear fluids. Several long-standing anaesthetic practices (preoperative patient fasting, rapid sequence induction of general anaesthesia, and the application of cricoid force following induction) owe their origin to the prevention of such an event. Adequate knowledge of nurses about fasting ensures quality nursing care during the preoperative period. (2017). When patients receive anesthesia for surgery, they become very relaxed and sleepy. This is why it requires a 6 h fast in common with other solids. Preoperative fasting is a requirement to be made by anesthesiologists, but they generally depend on nurses to ensure it is carried out by patients. For the preparation of infants and children for general anesthesia and surgery, it is extremely important to properly instruct the family in regard to preoperative food and fluid … Their work was based on preliminary unpublished data from a single Rhesus monkey which had neither vomited nor regurgitated, but whose right main bronchus was instilled with 0.4 ml kg−1 of acid.5 A relationship between the residual gastric volume and the volume of fluid instilled into the lungs was never established but rather extrapolated to the average weight of a pregnant woman. A model-based meta-analysis of data from premature neonates through to adults, Are you hungry? The duration of the first phase is related to the caloric content of the food. PREOPERATIVE FASTING. This survey conveyed to the authors that the nurses of our hospitals were knowledgeable but required further training to update them. Preoperative fasting is defined as fasting for a prescribed period prior to any procedure (American Society of Anesthesiologists, 2011; “Practice Guidelines,” 2017). The goal of fasting is to empty the stomach, thereby reducing the risk of aspiration of stomach contents during the anesthetic period. A nurse may voice a concern should duration of fasting be more than necessary (e.g., in diabetic patients with autonomic dysfunction, internal obstruction and congestive heart failure), to prevent hypovolemia and its related complications in a pediatric subsect. Despite this, there may be paucity of knowledge and a lack of application in practice. Also, 1 h clear fluid fasting may not significantly influence gastric volume or pH compared with 2 h,22 with gastric emptying occurring with a median half-life of <30 min when measured by MRI.23 Furthermore, fasting status may not be an independent predictor of aspiration or related adverse events such as unplanned admission, cardiac arrest, or death according to a prospective analysis of 139 142 children anaesthetized or sedated outside the main operating complex by different practitioners, including anaesthetists, emergency physicians and paediatric intensivists.20, Finally, compliance with preoperative fasting by children and parents is incomplete due to a variety of reasons such as misunderstanding what fasting entails, the reason for fasting, inadequate supervision, or deliberately misleading to avoid delays. He subsequently promoted preoperative fasting, alkalization of stomach contents, and the greater use of regional anaesthesia.4. Beach ML, Cohen DM, Gallagher SM, Cravero JP. Nil by mouth: best practice and patient education. The nurses in our survey appear to be varied in their knowledge about this. Ljungqvist O. Preoperative fasting and carbohydrate treatment. Not intended for women in labor. Premature and full-term neonates are often reported to have slower gastric emptying in comparison with older children and adults due to immature neuromodulation of gastric motility. Drinks higher in calories and osmolality delay emptying; however, these differences do not seem clinically relevant. Institutional review board approval was obtained prior to deployment. Gastric physiology is under a complex set of control factors that combine to ensure a steady release of nutrients to the small bowel and beyond. The guideline development group recommends that up to 30 mL of clear fluid could be taken at any time preoperatively to help adult patients take their medications and up to 0.5 mL/kg of water orally in children (Royal College of Nursing, 2005). The nurses opined that additional training regarding preoperative fasting might benefit them. It is necessary that nurses involved in pediatric surgical care must be thorough about not only the duration of fasting but also other requirements, such as changing fasting duration for various types of feeds and the amount of water allowed while consuming their regular oral medications. Pre-operative fasting, which is defined as the restriction of food and fluid intake for few hours before general anaesthesia or sedation, is one of the cornerstones of perioperative patient safety. This process recurs every 2 h and may take up to 6–12 h to complete.7,8. Additional fasting time ( e.g., 8 or more hours) may be needed in cases of patient intake of fried foods, fatty foods, or meat. However, he noted that those patients that aspirated fluid were critically ill, with an acute ‘asthma-like’ attack, and mottling on chest X-ray, which cleared in 7–10 days. Optimized preoperative fasting times decrease ketone body concentration and stabilize mean arterial blood pressure during induction of anesthesia in children younger Brady MC, Kinn S, Ness V, O’Rourke K, Randhawa N, Stuart P. Preoperative fasting for preventing perioperative complications in children. Reducing preoperative fasting time: A trend based on evidence. Retrieved from. Nursing Experience of the Survey Respondents (N = 628). For clear fluid, there is good evidence in children that emptying can occur well within the advocated 2 h guidelines. & Dock-Nascimento, D.B. The healed wound left a permanent gastric fistula through which Beaumont made direct observations of gastric emptying times, noting that for easily digested food, such as meat, potatoes, and bread, these varied from 1.5 h to 5 h, whereas most fluids passed from the stomach almost immediately. • Fried foods, fatty foods, or meat- Additional fasting time (e.g., 8 or more hours) * These recommendations apply to healthy patients who are undergoing elective procedure requiring general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, or procedural sedation and analgesia. They are not intended for women in … email@example.com. Subsequent studies challenged these findings by demonstrating gastric volumes >25 ml and pH < 2.5 in 40–80% fasted healthy patients.2 Given the confusion over what constitutes a significant residual volume or pH in adults, it is unsurprising that in the heterogeneous paediatric population the situation is even less clear. However, the years following World War II saw the widespread adoption of the ‘Nil per os (NPO) from midnight’ regimen, especially in North America, ignoring the previous distinction between solids and liquids. After a meal, gastric distension stimulates a vago-vagal excitatory reflex that enhances antral activity both directly and by the stimulation of gastrin. In this survey, the responding nurses were aware of issues concerning preoperative fasting, and the adverse effects of nonadherence, but only a minority knew the guidelines accurately. The rate of gastric emptying is a function of the pressure gradient between the stomach (mainly antral contraction) and duodenum (pyloric resistance). Minimum preoperative fasting time of 6 h recommended Yet another survey concluded there is a need for nurses to coordinate instructional practices to involve patients more in their own care with consistent information and comprehensive education and assist them in reducing fasting on clear fluids after hospital admission (Ingadottir et al., 2016; Lee & Lee, 2000). The duration of fasting of children before anesthesia has traditionally followed the 6-4-2 rule: 6 h for light food and milk, 4 h for breast and formula milk, and 2 h for clear fluids. The guidelines are largely based on scientific evidence, as noted in the document. Avoid short-acting benzodiazepines in the elderly. For these Guidelines, preoperative fasting is defined as a prescribed period of time before a procedure when patients are not allowed the oral intake of liquids or solids. All studies considered aspiration to have occurred if non-respiratory material was visualized in the larynx or tracheobronchial tree on laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, or suctioning or, alternatively, if clinical and/or radiological signs of aspiration developed. RATIONALE FOR PREOPERATIVE FASTING. It appeared from our study that a majority of the nursing colleagues educated the patients about the requirement of preoperative fasting, but they did not elaborate on the consequences of aspiration pneumonitis. Smith, I., Kranke, P., Murat, I., Smith, A., O'Sullivan, G. & Søreide, EEuropean Society of Anaesthesiology. Do you instruct patients about nil by mouth (NBM) or wait for the orders by doctor? In a review of 10 015 children allowed unlimited intake of clear fluids up to the time of general anaesthesia, Andersson et al.19 found the incidence of pulmonary aspiration to be 0.03% with an average fasting time of 1.7 h. This compares very favourably with the aspiration incidence for the less liberal regimens quoted above and allows greater flexibility in the operating list. Responsible individuals were described in descending order: nurses, anesthesiologist, surgeons, and hospital administration. More than one respondent from the same facility was al-lowed. During this phase, solids are digested in the fundus into particles <2 mm to facilitate passage through the pylorus during the second phase. Lack … Patients' understanding of preoperative fasting. Parents also seem understandably reluctant to wake children for drinks and are anxious about delaying the start of the anaesthetic so err on the side of caution and avoid any intake. The objective of this study was to understand the knowledge of nurses about preoperative fasting. However, gastric motility differs between the fed and fasting states. The composition of duodenal chyme further affects the rate of gastric emptying by influencing the release of inhibitory gut hormones. Most (98%) of the respondents were aware of fasting guidelines. This distinction carried on into the 1960s with paediatric instructions favouring sweetened liquids up to 2 h before operation. The nurses appreciated the concern of the anesthesiologists about fasting. Liberalizing preoperative oral intake may reduce these breaches.24. Respondent information and identity were not sought, and the survey responses were saved on a password-protected server accessible only to key study personnel. Less than half of the respondents correctly knew that infants could be breast fed up to 4 hours. Three reminders approximately 1 week apart were sent during this duration. The survey was created using SurveyMonkey™ and was e-mailed to all the nursing staff of all the units of Fortis hospitals of India after testing its viability via a pilot study. Ljungqvist, O. (2016). The response rate was 12.56% (628 of 5,000). American Society of Anesthesiologists Committee on Standards and Practice Parameters.(2011). Improving the quality of web surveys: The Checklist for Reporting Results of Internet E-Surveys (CHERRIES). Several anaesthesia societies now recommend a 2‐h preoperative fast for clear fluids and a 6‐h fast for solids in most elective patients. Residual gastric volume is a poor surrogate for the risk of aspiration, and there appears to be no causal link or critical volume threshold. Lack of updated knowledge among nurses may cause complications. Most of the respondents were aware of the preoperative fasting guidelines. Preoperative teaching: How does a group of nurses do it? The literature supporting such … Approximately two thirds of the respondents were aware that adults could be allowed milk up to 6 hours prior to surgery. Full meals, with high fat content, may not empty fully even at 8–9 h. Paediatric fasting guidelines are intended to reduce the risk of pulmonary aspiration and facilitate the safe and efficient conduct of anaesthesia. In addition to these neural and hormonal regulatory mechanisms, blood glucose also affects emptying. Eysenbach, G. (2016). We wish to provide further education about preoperative fasting in our nursing conferences and reassess at a later date. The anesthesiologists may teach their nursing colleagues because this issue actually concerns their patient safety, quality, and reputation. Hence, it becomes the responsibility of anesthesiologists, surgeons, and the nurses to educate patients about the importance of preoperative fasting. Preoperative medication given before anesthesia Anesthesiologists may prescribe or administer a premedication prior to administration of a general anesthetic. Therefore, the main objective of preoperative carbohydrate drinks is to stimulate an insulin response similar to that of a regular meal and therefore switch the preoperative fasted state described above into a fed state with normal postprandial insulin levels and minimal glycogen store depletion. Respondents' knowledge was inconsistent regarding the amount of water that could be allowed to facilitate swallowing of regular medications (among adult and pediatric patients) (Tables 3–4). None of 30 dogs fasted 2-4 hours refluxed, whereas 4/30 (13.3 %) dogs fasted 12-18 hours had a reflux episode during anaesthesia (p=0.112) (Galatos … These children were also less thirsty, less hungry, and less irritable than those who fasted for more than 6 h.21, Studies examining the incidence of paediatric aspiration and its complications. The participation in the survey was voluntary and no incentives were offered to respondents. Risk due to inadequate fasting during induction of general anesthesia. No deaths were reported in any study, From a practical perspective, the 6-4-2 fasting regimen is only possible for the first child on the list as the subsequent children are given only approximate fasting times. Whey-predominant formulae empty faster than casein-rich formulae and both are significantly faster than cow’s milk. In: Feldman LS, Delaney CP, Ljungqvist O, Carli F, ed. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the British Journal of Anaesthesia. Ahmed Mesbah, MB BCh FCAI FRCA, Mark Thomas, BSc (Hons) MB BChir FRCA FFFPM FAoMEd, Preoperative fasting in children, BJA Education, Volume 17, Issue 10, October 2017, Pages 346–350, https://doi.org/10.1093/bjaed/mkx021. Sir Joseph Lister was the first to make the distinction between fasting from food and fluids and in 1883 recommended no solid matter in the stomach and ‘a cup of tea or beef-tea 2 h previously’. The majority (91.6%) of the respondents correctly considered water as clear liquid, whereas a varying percentage of them considered fruit juice with or without pulp, black tea or coffee, carbonated aerated drinks, and milk as clear liquids (Figure). For example, acidic, hyperosmolar contents stimulate secretin, which directly inhibits gastric muscle contraction; fat and protein by-products stimulate cholecystokinin which inhibits the stimulatory effects of gastrin on the antrum and carbohydrates stimulate gastric inhibitory polypeptide. These guidelines are aimed at ensuring acceptable health of pediatric patients and optimizing the experience of … (2011). As with clear fluids, an increase in acidity, osmolality, and fatty acid concentration will slow emptying.9,10. 2 Pediatric hospitals have recently enacted more liberal preoperative clear fluid fasting guidelines. This article will review the historical context within which preoperative fasting guidelines have evolved, the physiology … The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise. All rights reserved. Sweetened drinks are slower depending upon the type of sugar—fructose, sucrose, and galactose empty faster than glucose. A light meal or nonhuman milk may be ingested for up to 6 h before elective procedures requiring general anesthesia, regional anesthesia, or procedural sedation and analgesia. A key feature of this perioperative shift of metabolism has been found to be the development of insulin resistance, the severity of which is proportional to the degree of surgical trauma.15 The development of insulin resistance impairs its anabolic effects and is a known risk factor for the development of postoperative complications and increasing length of hospital stay.15,16, Providing non-caloric clear fluids, such as water, 2 h prior to surgery does not provide the substrates required to change the metabolic effects of fasting and surgery. §§. Practice guidelines for preoperative fasting and the use of pharmacologic agents to reduce the risk of pulmonary aspiration: Application to healthy patients undergoing elective procedures: An updated report by the American Society of Anesthesiologists Committee on Standards and Practice Parameters. This may result in surgeries getting rescheduled, causing inconvenience to all concerned. Scintigraphy using radiolabelled meals represents the gold standard for the measurement of gastric emptying either directly or via breath tests; however, differing protocols between centres hamper its interpretation. preoperative fasting was associated with increased gastric acidity and an increased occurrence of reflux. Approximately 80% incorrectly responded that clear fluids could be allowed for up to 6 hours, and 13.6% thought fasting for 4 hours prior to surgery was adequate; only 6% correctly knew that clear fluids could be allowed up to 2 hours prior to surgery. These same guidelines, when strictly adhered to, often result in much longer clear fluid fasting times than are desirable. Does my child have to fast before surgery? They ought to mention the number of hours of fasting prior to any surgery or procedure and the complications resulting from inadequate fasting. It is during these latter contractions that the stomach empties particles > 2 mm. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been used to evaluate gastric residual volume, but its use is limited by expense and availability. Preoperative fasting is a routine that aims to secure an empty stomach by the time of induction of anesthesia in order to reduce the risk of regurgitation of acid gastric content that may flow into the lungs and cause dangerous chemical pneumonia. During fasting, metabolism slows and the primary source of glucose gradually becomes hepatic glycogenolysis. At levels in excess of 8 mmol l−1, the delivery of caloric contents is reduced by a negative feedback mechanism from duodenal receptors to maintain a constant rate of delivery of 1–4 kcal min−1.7, There is a considerable difference in how liquids and solids leave the stomach. Lee, D.S. Ingadottir, B., Olafsdottir, A.M., Sveinsdottir, H., Asmundsdottir, L.B., Torp, M.S. Most (73.7%) of the nurses agreed that they required additional training regarding fasting, the hazards of aspiration pneumonitis, and the nurses' role in preventing it. He reported that surgical patients who ingested food shortly before their procedure were more likely to aspirate their stomach contents with severe consequences. 9 Surveys at 2 US hospitals in 2004 and 2008 reported … Recently, this has changed to the 6-4-1 rule in many countries and is discussed below. The intention of conducting this survey was to assess the knowledge of preoperative fasting among nurses. It may, therefore, be better to advise parents to give their children food and drink at specific times rather than instructions for fasting at 2 h and 6 h before operation, accepting that this may reduce list flexibility. In 1948, Digby Leigh, in his textbook Pediatric Anesthesia, suggested that children should fast from clear fluids for 1 h prior to surgery. The latest guidelines do not support preoperative fasting, as there is no difference in residual gastric fluid volume, pH or gastric emptying rate following semi-solid meals or … However, a meta-analysis of 1457 patients, from premature neonates to adults, found that age was not a significant determinant of gastric emptying.11. Association of Paediatric Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland. Gastric volume is influenced by several factors: Saliva and gastric secretions: During fasting, salivary secretions contribute 1 ml kg−1 h−1 and gastric secretions 0.6 ml kg−1 h−1 to gastric volume.10, The rate of gastric emptying: Factors affecting emptying are summarized in Table 1. Two guidelines recommend using the Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) to assess the risk of cardiac complications after noncardiac surgery 4,7 (Table 210). 1 Yet, in the intervening years, fasting times have increased in the belief that this may reduce the risk of pulmonary aspiration of gastric contents. While there are physiological data to support preoperative carbohydrate drinks, studies investigating the type of drink and its clinical impact in children are limited.16, Perioperative pulmonary aspiration in children remains infrequent, is more likely in emergency rather than elective surgery, and serious respiratory complications are rare (Table 2).3,6,17–20 An updated Cochrane review of 25 trials involving 2543 children found only one reported incidence of perioperative aspiration. Response indicating awareness about clear fluids. Preanesthesia fasting guidelines apply to patients having elective surgery and are intended for procedures performed under … The importance of a preoperative fast was acknowledged early in the evolution of anesthesia as a discipline of medicine. Yes. The understanding regarding preoperative fasting appeared to be insufficient among nurses. Clear fluids rapidly empty from the stomach within 30 min. Descriptive analysis was performed based on survey questions, and subgroup analysis was done to describe the salient points.
