Postoperative -- keyword and MeSH


A first try.  The keyword portion of the search was also being prepared for use in EMBASE.  For this reason, the hyphenated terms were not truncated.
 
(postop* OR "post-op" OR "post-operative" OR "post-operation" OR "post-operations" OR postsurg* OR "post-surgery"  OR "post-surgical" OR "after surgery" OR "following surgery" OR postanesth* OR post-anesthesia OR post-anesthetic  OR PARU OR PACU OR "recovery room" OR "recovery rooms" OR "recovery unit" OR "recovery units"  OR "Postoperative Period"[Mesh] OR "Postoperative Complications"[Mesh] OR "Postoperative Care"[Mesh]) 

When specific procedures are of interest, it is important to represent them, e.g.
post-laparotomy OR postlaparotom*

Novoseven (rFVIIa) -- keywords and MeSH



Alternate drug names were gathered from Martindale's (via LexiComp) and from the EMTREE browser

PubMed:
 ((("Eptacog Alfa" OR "Eptacog Alpha" OR "factor vii" OR "factor 7") AND (Activat* OR activad* OR active OR activatum)) OR rFVIIa OR "factor viia" OR  λHVII2463  OR niastase OR  nn1731 OR "novo seven" OR "novo-seven" OR NovoSeven OR  Acset OR Immuseven OR "recombinant FVIIa"[Supplementary Concept])[all]

 The following hyphenated and space-containing terms were "not found" by PubMed and were removed to avoid retrieval of irrelevant results:
"Eptacogum alfa"
"factor 7a"
"Provertin-UM TIM 3"
"Coagil-VII"
CAS registry numbers from EMBASE and Martindale's
"oreptacog alfa"
