SBI was founded around one fundamental question:
How are your patients doing after surgery and anaesthesia?
Perioperatively, patients experience an unnecessarily high level of side effects associated with their treatment. These side effects include nausea, severe pain, anxiety, and stress. Moreover, many patients develop postoperative delirium (POD) and neurocognitive dysfunctions, often resulting in long-term cognitive impairment, decreased quality of life, and increased mortality.
However, physicians, nurses and their institutions do not receive structured feedback regarding these aspects of each patient's well-being. They may therefore be unable to engage in the essential cause-and-effect learning necessary to evaluate and consecutively reduce such side effects.
