The clinical information (department, anesthesia factor, operation factor) was acquired from the medical records. The time at which the patient entered the operating room, time at which anesthesia was administered, and time at which operation was started were obtained. The anesthesia factors were as follows: type of anesthesia, insertion of epidural catheters, insertion of peripheral venous catheter (1st), insertion of peripheral venous catheter (2nd), insertion of arterial catheter insertion, and insertion of central venous catheter. The surgical factors were use of endoscope, surgery position, use of preoperative mobile biplane X-ray imaging, use of preoperative ultrasound diagnostic device, and use of preoperative surgical navigation systems. To address bias sources, researchers audited the accuracy of data input.


Steps to reproduce

The inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) patients of all ages and all backgrounds that were scheduled for surgery; (2) all types of anesthesia (general anesthesia, spinal anesthesia, local infiltration anesthesia, intravenous sedation, epidural anesthesia, nerve block anesthesia); (3) all departments (Cardiology, Cardiovascular Surgery, Cranial Nerve Surgery, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Nephrology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedic Surgery, Otorhinolaryngology, Plastic Surgery, Psychiatry, Thoracic Surgery, Urology).
