Local steroid injection mostly diminishes pain but with increased recurrence rate long-term, although steroid injection is very effective short-term.

For over 20 years, Linda Buonanno lived in fear that her irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) would suddenly interrupt her daily routine with frequent trips to the bathroom and unbearable cramping. Buonanno, now a 71-year-old medical assistant and hairdresser from Methuen, Mass., tried everything from drugs to dairy-free diets. Nothing worked. She remembers a particularly tough period over 10 years ago, when she was working on the factory floor of a medical-device company for up to 10 hours a day, six days a week. When an IBS episode would strike, her co-workers would cover for her as she huddled in a corner, keeled over in pain...

The gold standard analgesic regimen for cesarean delivery is intrathecal morphine,1 which dramatically reduces post-cesarean pain but can cause dose-related adverse effects including pruritus, nausea, and vomiting. Although pruritus is usually considered a minor adverse effect, pruritus induced by intrathecal morphine is sometimes unpleasant and difficult to treat, as there are few effective treatment and prevention strategies.2 Some mothers experience persistent pruritus during the initial childrearing period after cesarean delivery, and clinically we often find women who are unwilling to receive intrathecal morphine at a...

In total, 140 male Wistar rats were used; isoflurane-induced nociceptive response was evaluated using the von Frey test, serum calcium-binding protein &b...

CONCLUSIONS: CFIR-guided implementation of perioperative music was feasible at a tertiary VA hospital, with moderate penetration in a high-risk subset of patients. Use of digital music players with preferred playlists was supported by strong evidence, tension for change, modest readiness among providers, good acceptability among patients (especially those at risk for opioid overuse), and a protocolized approach. Further study is needed to identify similar frameworks for effective knowledge-translation activities. PMID: 29905616 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The evidence does not support one particular method or technique over another in providing effective conscious sedation and analgesia for pain relief during and after oocyte retrieval. Simultaneous use of sedation combined with analgesia such as the opiates, further enhanced by paracervical block or acupuncture techniques, resulted in better pain relief than occurred with one modality alone. Evidence was insufficient to show conclusively whether any of the interventions influenced pregnancy rates. All techniques reviewed were associated with a high degree of patient satisfaction. Women's preferences and resour...
