Authors: Dutta A, Sethi N, Choudhary P, Sood J, Panday BC, Chugh PT Abstract OBJECTIVE: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is commonly attributed to opioid analgesics; consequently, perioperative opioid dosage reduction is a common practice. However, inadequate fentanyl analgesia may have adverse implications (sympathetic activation, pain). We conducted this randomized clinical study to analyze whether preinduction fentanyl 3 µg kg-1 administered by different techniques increases incidence of PONV. DESIGN: Randomized-control, prospective, investigator and observer blinded, two-arm, single-center com...

Authors: Mazer-Amirshahi M, Ladkany D, Mullins PM, Motov S, Perrone J, Nelson LS, Pines JM Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine recent trends in and predictors of hydromorphone administration in US emergency departments (EDs) compared with other opioids. DESIGN: Retrospective review of data from the National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey from 2007 to 2014. PARTICIPANTS: All adult ED visits where an opioid analgesic was administered were included. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Trends in and predictors of hydromorphone administration were assessed using survey-weighted logistic regression, comparing hydromor...

CONCLUSION: The inconsistency between our findings and existing literature regarding both opioids prescription trends and postdiagnosis pain chronicity in cancer survivors over the medium term suggests possible changes in pain perception and the evolution of cancer pain management strategies. Further research should explore these hypotheses and investigate patient characteristics&effect in cancer pain management. PMID: 30234921 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Chompu-Inwai P, Simprasert S, Chuveera P, Nirunsittirat A, Sastraruji T, Srisuwan T Abstract To compare the success of perceived pulpal anesthesia between groups using nitrous oxide/oxygen (N2O/O2) and oxygen (O2) in children premedicated with ibuprofen with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis permanent teeth. Thirty-three children (mean age 10.4 ± 1.9 years) with 33 symptomatic irreversible pulpitis permanent teeth were included in this preliminary study. All children were premedicated with ibuprofen and randomly assigned to receive either N2O/O2 (17 participants) or O2 (16 participants). Four percen...

In this study, we retrospectively compared physical and psychological factors in patients with acute and chronic orofacial pain. We analyzed data from 854 patients presenting to the Orofacial Pain Center, Department of Dental Anesthesiology, Tokyo Dental College, Suidobashi Hospital between April 2010 and March 2014. We categorized patients into the acute group if their condition had persisted

Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine which factors influence inpatient and postdischarge opioid use after orthopaedic trauma. Design: Retrospective cohort study. Setting: Single Level 1 trauma center. Participants: The study included 235 adult trauma patients treated operatively for fracture with minimum 1 overnight hospital stay. Intervention: Operative fracture management. Main Outcome Measurement: Total opioid pain medication use, in oral morphine equivalents, in inpatient and postdischarge settings. Results: Controlling for length of stay, inpatient opioid use was negatively correla...

Conclusions: Our findings suggest that sleep disturbance is both highly prevalent (86% PSQI ≥5) and severe (54.6% PSQI ≥10) in patients recovering from a traumatic orthopaedic injury. The bodily pain, vitality, and mental health components of the SF-36 were independently associated with worse sleep quality. The average orthopaedic trauma patient presents with a sleep score similar to that seen in clinical sleep disorders and clinical depression. Interestingly, in our study, the severity of the overall injury burden as measured by ISS and time since injury were not independently associated with the severity of sleep...
