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]

(Natural News) A meta-analysis published online in the Anesthesia &Analgesia journal shows that integrative medicine treatments — such as yoga, acupuncture and mindfulness meditation as well as relaxation techniques and massage therapy — show preliminary efficacy in pain management. A team of researchers at the Harvard Medical School reviewed up to 32 studies as part of the review. The experts...

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...

Medical acupuncture is increasingly recognized for reducing postoperative pain, nausea and emergence agitation. Anesthetic induction is an ideal time to perform acupuncture in an effort to reduce the adverse side effects of surgery. Acupuncture is safe, inexpensive and does not lengthen the duration of anesthesia. There are however no published reports of how often patients will choose intraoperative acupuncture when given the opportunity to do so.

Authors: Bonapace J, Gagné GP, Chaillet N, Gagnon R, Hébert E, Buckley S Abstract OBJECTIVE: To review the evidence relating to nonpharmacological approaches in the management of pain during labour and delivery. To formulate recommendations for the usage of nonpharmacological approaches to pain management. OPTIONS: Nonpharmacological methods available for pain management during labour and delivery exist. These should be included in the counselling and care of women. EVIDENCE: PubMed and Medline were searched for articles in French and English on subjects related to "breastfeeding," &...
