In this report, we present a patient receiving a large dose of intrathecal opioids for refractory cancer pain, and who is also afflicted with pain-induced depression. Dexmedetomidine (DEX) was used as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen that successfully alleviated both the patient ’s pain and depression. An intrathecal infusion of DEX may serve as an adjuvant drug in the treatment of cancer pain and pain-related depression.

Written by Pendell MeyersA 20 year old female with an episode of syncope was triage to my low acuity zone one morning. Her vitals were within normal limits except for her heart rate of 109 bpm.I immediately went to evaluate her, without looking in the chart first.

CONCLUSIONS: QOL is largely preserved in brain metastasis patients treated with SRS. Higher RPA class, upfront whole-brain radiation therapy, and greater intracranial disease burden are independent predictors of post-SRS QOL deterioration. Worse pre-SRS QOL predicts shorter survival. Assessment of QOL is recommended in brain metastasis patients managed with SRS. PMID: 32650308 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Similarities between our findings and reports of patients with chronic pain suggest that some FC changes observed in these patients may relate to the presence of an ongoing afferent nociceptive drive.

Conclusions: CLL imposes a significant HRQoL and economic burden. Our systematic review shows that an unmet need persists in CLL for treatments that delay progression while minimizing AEs. Studies suggest targeted therapies may reduce the economic burden of CLL but longer follow-up data are needed. PMID: 32634056 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Falls in participants with pain were associated with cognitive and emotional factors, whereas falls in those without pain were associated with physical factors.
