NEW COLUMN! Checklists in Bariatric Surgery

| September 18, 2012

Welcome to “Checklists in Bariatric Surgery.” This column’s aim is to help bariatric surgeons quickly review the reasons for potential problems when caring for bariatric patients.

In this first installment of the column, we discuss emesis after gastric bypass, which is a common event. Specifically, we address patients with unusual intractable vomiting.

We hope you clip and save this convenient checklist and find it useful as a reference tool in your everyday practice.
Please stay tuned for more checklists in upcoming issues of Bariatric Times.
