Variables Associated With Administration of Nurse-initiated Analgesia in Pediatric Triage
We examined variables that influence the provision of analgesia in a pediatric emergency department that uses TNIA. Methods: A 4-year retrospective cohort study of all children with triage pain scores ≥1 was conducted. Data on demographics and patients’ and nurses’ characteristics were collected. Logistic regression analyses were used to examine the effect of multiple variables on the provision of any analgesia and opioid analgesia. Results: Overall, 28,746 children had triage pain scores ≥1; 14,443 (50.2%) patients received analgesia of any type and 1888 (6.6%) received opioid analgesia. Mean time to any analgesia was 8.0±3.7 minutes. Of the 9415 patients with severe pain, 1857 (19.7%) received opioid analgesia. Age, sex, hourly number of patients waiting to be triaged, and nurse experience were not associated with the provision of any analgesia or opioid analgesia. Severe pain had the highest odds ratios (ORs) for the provision of any analgesia and opioid analgesia (7.7; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 7.1-8.2 and 22.8; 95% CI: 18.1-28.8, respectively).

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to summarize the evidence for the association between exposure to a motor vehicle collision (MVC) and future low back pain (LBP). LITERATURE SURVEY: Persistent low back pain (LBP) is a relatively common complaint...

Authors: Umehara T, Tanaka R, Nagao S, Tomiyama D, Kawabata Y, Nagano Y, Takeuchi Y, Kakehashi M Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous studies have examined when activities of daily living (ADL) recovery more than six months after surgery can be predicted, and how much accuracy the predictors have. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the predictors of ADL decline and evaluate their accuracies one year post-operation for hip-fracture patients. METHODS: We studied patients who underwent hip fracture surgery and were able to walk independently pre-operatively. The predictors of ADL declined one year ...
Rocuronium-associated injection pain/withdrawal response is a common side effect of this muscle relaxant. Can pretreating with IV antipyretic analgesics reduce the effects?BMC Anesthesiology
CONCLUSIONS: Trials of antidepressants may be driven mainly by commercial interests, focusing on prevalent diseases and everyday problems. No one can live a full life without experiencing several of the problems for which these drugs were tested. Antidepressants, sometimes called happy pills, could be seen as the modern version of Aldous Huxley's soma pill intended to keep everyone happy in the "Brave New World".
