Title:
Use of a pathway quality improvement care bundle to reduce mortality after emergency laparotomy.
Authors:
Huddart, S; Peden, C J; Swart, M; McCormick, Bruce; Dickinson, M; Mohammed, M A; Quiney, N
Abstract:
Emergency laparotomies in the U.K., U.S.A. and Denmark are known to have a high risk of death, with accompanying evidence of suboptimal care. The emergency laparotomy pathway quality improvement care (ELPQuiC) bundle is an evidence-based care bundle for patients undergoing emergency laparotomy, consisting of: initial assessment with early warning scores, early antibiotics, interval between decision and operation less than 6 h, goal-directed fluid therapy and postoperative intensive care.
