Reducing the Rate of Unplanned Extubation of Venous Access in Perioperative Patients


Quality control circle
Unplanned extubation




Objective: To investigate the application effect of quality control circle activities in reducing the rate of unplanned extubation of venous access in perioperative patients. Methods: The quality control circle method was used to analyze the causes, identify the actual causes of unplanned out-of-control, take corresponding measures, formulate corresponding countermeasures, implement standardized management, and carry out continuous improvement. Results: Following the implementation of quality control circle activities, the rate of unplanned extubation of venous access in perioperative patients decreased from 27.35% before improvement to 3.42% after improvement. Conclusion: The use of quality control circle activities in the safety management of venous access in perioperative patients is conducive to reducing the rate of unplanned extubation of venous access in perioperative patients.
