Brief Summary:
Recovery following general anesthesia and surgery is a complex issue confounded by the type of surgery, surgical care, inflammation, different anesthetic drugs and techniques, patient co-morbidities, and differing patient and clinician perceptions of what constitutes good recovery. In this observational study, quality of recovery and patient satisfaction will be measured using the Postoperative Quality Recovery Scale (PQRS). This tool includes six domains of recovery: physiological, nociceptive (pain and nausea), emotive (anxiety and depression), functional recovery (return of activities of daily living), self-assessed recovery, and cognitive recovery.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 200 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Measuring Recovery in Patients Undergoing Major Abdominal, Thoracic, and Arthroplasty Surgery Using an Enhanced Recovery Program.
Study Start Date : November 2013
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2015
Actual Study Completion Date : August 2015

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Elective major abdominal, thoracic, and arthroplasty surgery
All consenting patients scheduled for elective major abdominal, thoracic, and arthroplasty surgery will be followed for 8 weeks after surgery to measure the quality of recovering using the PQRS.
Other: Postoperative Quality Recovery Scale (PQRS)
The PQRS is completed prior to surgery to provide baseline values, and then repeated at different intervals: 15 minutes, 40 minutes, 1 and 3 days, and 4-8 weeks after the completion of surgery. Recovery is broadly defined as return to baseline or better.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of recovery (return to baseline or better) in the cognitive domain of the PQRS [ Time Frame: postoperative day 3 ]
