optimal analgesia

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

The need for cautious fluid management to minimise rise in intracranial blood volume, while promptly replacing lost fluids due to diuresis, while devising a strategy for post-operative pain management instituting optimal analgesia with minimal sedation, nausea and respiratory depression pose a tremendous task to neuro-anaesthesiologist.

1% with fentanyl 2 [micro]g/mL, as an intermediate background infusion rate (5 mL/h) combined with a 5-mL bolus, 12-min lockout, and 20-mL maximum allowable hourly dose provided a balance between optimal analgesia and unfavorable second-stage outcomes" (Sullivan, 2010, p.
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.
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.
3) Epidural analgesia not only avoids increase in PVR, it provides optimal analgesia in combination with controlled vasodilatation to accommodate autotransfusion.
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).
To minimize these side effects of opioids, and to attain optimal analgesia various regional analgesia techniques have evolved.
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.
