Orthopedic surgery patients are vulnerable to a number of complications, particularly pulmonary complications related to scoliosis surgery, embolic complications of joint arthroplasty, and complications related to the use of opioids and sedatives in an elderly population. They also are susceptible to transfusion-related complications such as transfusion-related acute lung injury and transfusion-associated circulatory overload. Specific strategies for management of these complex patients are identified.
