  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    This is the first attempt to examine one of the key rationales for Operating room pressure.  The authors have made a clear and succinct presentation supported with data of the reality of patients persceptions rather than nebulous assumptions made by persons not involved in direct patient care.

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    This is the first real persentation of critical data on an important topic that has huge patient safety implications as well as hospital staff and patient satisfaction concerns

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?


  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?


  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?

    This is the first real attempt to analyse an important area of medicine

  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?


  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?

    This work establishes a basis from which other studies can expand

  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?

    This is an area of extreme importance.  But which is neglicted because objective analysis interferes wiht the assumptions of the current practice model

  • Other Comments:

    This is important work in an area that has to be explored
