Other predictive factors were: contaminated surgical site (OR 2.1, 95% CI 1.2–3.7) and anaemia (OR 1.8, 95% CI 1.1–2.8). Predictive factors of individual procedures included: urine retention (transurethral resection of the prostate); extended duration of operation and asthma (hysterectomy); acute admissions and extended duration of operation (cholecystectomy); and warfarin type drugs, ethanol abuse, failed prostheses, GI ulcer/ inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, and ischaemic heart disease (hip and knee joint arthroplasty). Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that five factors should be routinely monitored for patients undergoing these procedures: age >70 years, type of procedure, duration of operation >2 h, contaminated surgical site and anaemia.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:47:01 AEDT ]]> Cancer incidence and mortality in aircraft maintenance workers https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:4616 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:21:54 AEDT ]]>
