POMR is an important safety metric
The estimation that postoperative mortality is around 7.7%of global mortality is probably double
Percentage global mortality or ratio does not take into account lives saved by surgery and thus premature deaths averted.
Only 9 countries is untrue - the Pacific Region published POMR from 13 countries
POMR is not a benchmark unless risk stratified for urgency, age, ASA, procedure/condition
All hospitals and health systems should know whether patients operated on live or die - the ability to report this is. It step one of a safe system
