The goal of this online minimally invasive surgery (MIS) course is to provide the perioperative nurse with limited experience in MIS with the foundation knowledge required to become a contributing member of the MIS team. The goal of module 1 is to review and augment the perioperative RN's knowledge of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) patient risk factors that must be considered in the preoperative assessment. These risks include: positioning, fluid management, and intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The goal of module 2 is to review and augment the perioperative RN's knowledge of considerations in the intraoperative phase of minimally invasive surgery (MIS). The goal of module 3 is to provide the learner with knowledge regarding early recognition of the signs associated with the risks and potential complications of MIS procedures, including venous thromboembolism, CO2 embolism, fluid overload, inadvertent vascular and/or visceral injuries, burns, and unplanned hypothermia, and infection. The goal of module 4 is to provide the perioperative RN with knowledge regarding the postoperative care of the MIS patient, specifically the early recognition of the signs associated with the risks and potential complications of MIS procedures, including venous stasis, inadvertent vascular and/or visceral injuries, burns, unplanned hypothermia, nausea and vomiting, and potential fluid retention.

Medications and solutions are frequently administered to patients as they undergo operative procedures. The accurate administration of these medications and solutions is essential for safe patient care and for the promotion of patient healing. The perioperative nurse has an important and unique role in their preparation and administration. This module will assist the perioperative nurse in identifying patient care factors related to medication and solution preparation. Additionally, specific medication categories, their actions, dosages, routes of administration, adverse reactions, and other considerations will be discussed. Discussion of medications and solutions in this module is limited to those medications and solutions within the responsibility of the perioperative nurse. IV medications are not typically administered by the perioperative nurse in the circulating role. Therefore, IV medications are not discussed in this module with the exception of conscious sedation medications. Also, medications usually administered by the anesthesia care provider are discussed in the anesthesia module. Specific medications and solutions will be discussed later in this module. **Please note this one module is part of the "AORN Periop 101" series.

The skin is a major source of microbial contamination in the surgical environment and can never be sterilized. Transmission of these microbes to the surgical wound may result in an infection. This module will discuss the rationale for reducing the risk of postoperative surgical site skin infection by removing soil and transient microorganisms from the skin, reducing the resident microbial count to subpathogenic level in a short period of time and with the least amount of tissue irritation, and inhibiting rapid rebound growth of microorganisms. **Please note this one module is part of the "AORN Periop 101" series. If you wish to complete the whole series, we suggest that you enroll in "AORN Periop 101: A Core Curriculum™ - Bundled Learning Plan" to receive complete credit. You may need to contact your administrator to gain access.
