  Purpose
Prospective Evaluation of a RIsk Score for postoperative pulmonary COmPlications in Europe (PERISCOPE) is a multi-centre, international observational study of a random-sample cohort of patients undergoing a nonobstetric in-hospital surgical procedure under general or regional anaesthesia during a continued 7-day period of recruitment.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The main outcome, defined as a postoperative pulmonary complications (PPC), will be a composite of the in-hospital fatal or non-fatal postoperative events. [ Time Frame: Postoperative in-hospital stay up to 5 weeks ]
    Will include:Mild respiratory failure;Severe respiratory failure;acute lung injury(ALI)/Acute respiratory distress syndrome(ARDS);Suspected pulmonary infection;Pulmonary infiltrate;Pleural effusion;Atelectasis;Pneumothorax;Bronchospasm;Aspiration Pneumonitis;Cardiopulmonary edema.Investigators will not modify centre usual patient management. Patients with PPCs will identify by consulting medical records and looking for events fulfilling PPCdefinition. Diagnosis date for every complication will be recorded.Participants will be followed during in-hospital stay up to 5 weeks.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • a) Postoperative length of stay [ Time Frame: Postoperative in-hospital stay up to 90 days ]
    Participants will be followed for the duration of in-hospital stay up to 90 days

  • b) In-hospital mortality [ Time Frame: Postoperative in-hospital stay up to 90 days ]
    Participants will be followed for the duration of in-hospital stay up to 90 days

Groups/Cohorts
In-patient Adult Non-obstetricSurgical

Consecutive patients admitted to participating centres undergoing surgery Non-obstetric in-hospital surgical procedure, elective or emergent, under general anaesthesia (alone or in combination with regional/neuraxial anaesthesia), neuraxial anaesthesia or plexus block (with and without sedation).

All eligible patients undergoing surgery within the seven day study period will be recruited wherever possible.


Detailed Description:

Prospective Evaluation of a RIsk Score for postoperative pulmonary COmPlications in Europe (PERISCOPE) is a multi-centre, international observational study of a random-sample cohort of patients undergoing a nonobstetric in-hospital surgical procedure under general or regional anaesthesia during a continued 7-day period of recruitment.

Participating centres throughout Europe will contribute routine clinical data describing all eligible patients who undergo surgery during a continuous week (7-days) at convenience of every department within a period of two months from May 1st to July 1st 2011. A questionnaire of around 50 items will be filled during the pre, intra and postoperative periods. The follow-up will end at discharge. The aim of the PERISCOPE study is to validate a simple score to predict postoperative pulmonary complications(PPCs). This score has recently been published in Anesthesiology and you can access linking to: http://journals.lww.com/anesthesiology/Fulltext/2010/12000/Prediction_of_Postoperative_Pulmonary.20.aspx

TIMEFRAME Participants will be followed for the duration of in-hospital stay, an expected average of maximum 5 weeks.
