optimal analgesia

use of pain-controlling agents (e.g. long-acting local anaesthetic agents, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents, opiates and other pain-modulating drug stratagems) to normalize postoperative and ongoing pain states

In conclusion, our results suggest that WSE could be a valuable adjuvant in opioid-sparing therapies, which aim to minimize opioid dosage while providing optimal analgesia and limiting the emergence of tolerance and hyperalgesia.
Since the risk of rebleeding from the AVM was also assumed to extend into the postoperative period, we aimed to minimise any hypertensive responses to postoperative pain by providing optimal analgesia in the form of an epidural.
The results of the comparison of titration periods reviewed in the poster suggest that patients may benefit from rapid titration to optimal analgesia without increased risk of side effects using our product," said James R.
In addition, the limited resources in the public health sector often compromise the ability of nurses and doctors to provide optimal analgesia, and non-pharmacological interventions that can reduce pain are therefore particularly valuable.
When using tricyclics, blood levels should be monitored; there is evidence that the same concentrations that produce an antidepressant effect may be required for optimal analgesia, he said.
For example, although epidural morphine has a predominantly spinal site of action, interactions with supraspinal receptors may also be important for optimal analgesia (21,33).
Future research of this novel epidural delivery program will include redefining the algorithm to provide optimal analgesia and incorporating the regimen into a portable pump to facilitate convenience in a busy obstetric delivery suite.
