BI-WEEKLY FOCUS: SIZE OF BLEED
To help get a better SASI score for AN cases, I need to know the size of the bleed.
I must be able to answer these questions:
Glasgow Outcome Scale will now be reported as:
5. Good Recovery - Resumption of normal life despite minor deficits.
4. Moderate Disability - disabled but independent, no assistance with ADLs.
3. Severe Disability - Conscious but disabled, needing assistance with ADLs.
2. Persistent Vegetative State - Unresponsive & speechless after several weeks
FYI: N2QOD is Coming!
The National Neurosurgery Quality & Outcomes (N2QOD) REDCap data base is almost here at UTSW for our Neurosurgery Department. There are 3 components of this National Database: Cervical Spine, Lumbar Spine & Cerebrovascular. I will be maintaining this database along with the others we currently utilize. I am getting excited to learn about Cervical and Lumbar procedures!
