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 2012-2014 edition of the ASPAN Standards sports a new title: Perianesthesia Nursing Standards, Practice Recommendations and Interpretive Statements. This updated text contains principles of perianesthesia practice, perianesthesia practice standards, evidence-based clinical practice guidelines, position statements, practice recommendations, resources from partnering organizations and interpretive statements which provide clarity and definition to key elements of the standards.
New content in this publication includes principles of safe perianesthesia practice, a practice recommendation for care of the adult patient with obstructive sleep apnea, a revised practice recommendation for family visitation in perianesthesia care unit and a position statement on substance abuse in the perianesthesia setting.
