Abstract

  • RESULTS Of 14 420 nonemergent operations with at least 2 postoperative inpatient days, 13 170 (91.3%) adhered to the original SCIP-BB measure, and 480 (3.3%) experienced a MACCE. Propensity score-matched analyses showed that adherence to the original SCIP-BB measure was not associated with MACCEs (odds ratio [OR], 1.00; 95%CI, 0.66-1.54) but was associated with increased cerebrovascular events (OR, 3.01; 95%CI, 1.00-10.07). Adherence to the revised SCIP-BB measure occurred in 11 597 (80.4%), and in matched analysis adherence was associated with decreased MACCEs (OR, 0.75; 95%CI, 0.57-0.95), cardiovascular events (OR, 0.66; 95%CI, 0.46-0.93), and 30-day mortality (OR, 0.74; 95% CI, 0.53-0.98). Adherence to the revised SCIP-BB measure was not associated with increased cerebrovascular events (OR, 1.22; 95%CI, 0.62-2.38).
