Patient Q&A Section

What are the signs of surgery?

"The signs and symptoms from surgery can range from mild to life threatening. These include post operative nausea, vomiting, loss of breath, nausea, dizziness, inability to breathe, fever, blood clots, prolonged bleeding and confusion. All of these symptoms can have many causes including infection. Careful history and physical examination can help to confirm whether these symptoms are surgery related.\n\n- "

What causes surgery?

"People who go through surgery may have a higher risk of developing complications. Diabetes mellitus and hypertension are the major risk factors influencing post-operative morbidity.

What is surgery?

"Surgery can be helpful to many patients with obstructive [sleep apnea]( as a means of curing or treating the main cause of their sleep disorders. It can be combined with other effective sleep-loss techniques to make surgery easier, which has also resulted in improved quality of life in patients. A number of surgical procedures can effectively treat obstructive sleep apnea and the related symptoms. As obstructive sleep apnea is an ever-increasing problem globally, the demand for effective and practical measures to tackle sleep breathing disorders is increasing drastically." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What are common treatments for surgery?

"More than 50,000 people are newly diagnosed with [lung cancer]( each year in North American. Surgery is used to treat lung cancer, with an increasing percentage of patients undergoing resection. In a contemporary randomized study, post-operative cancer recurrence and cancer-specific mortality was lower among patients receiving adjuvant cancer therapy." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Who should consider clinical trials for surgery?

"A surgical multivariate analysis of this database indicated no influence on outcomes, suggesting that the addition of a surgical clinical trial to a standard of care may not improve outcomes in selected patients undergoing surgical referral." - Anonymous Online Contributor

Unverified Answer

Is artificial intelligence virtual assistant typically used in combination with any other treatments?

"Although AIVA is widely cited as being an effective therapy that in combination improves outcomes, it is unclear if AIVA is necessarily used in combination with other treatments. Given the large number of treatments currently recommended by a Cochrane review and the inherent heterogeneity of clinical trials, assessing and interpreting the effectiveness of AIVA in combination with a variety of other therapies may prove to be an overly simplistic task when it comes to clinical practice." - Anonymous Online Contributor

What is the latest research for surgery?

"This article discusses the latest research in surgery. Most of the articles were published in 2014, and, of the many surgical topics that have been covered in the past decade, only a few of them have yet to be investigated using randomized controlled trials. This emphasizes the need for further research into new surgical techniques. Also, this article discusses how to read a published surgical article—with the exception that the readers need to know how to read articles on the Internet. It is crucial to keep up with the changing literature to stay up to date." - Anonymous Online Contributor
