IJERPH, Vol. 18, Pages 11555: Development and Pilot Use of a Questionnaire to Assess the Knowledge of Midwives and Pediatric Nurses on Maternal Use of Analgesics during Lactation
This study aimed to develop and test a valid questionnaire on the knowledge of analgesics (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, aspirin, tramadol, codeine, oxycodone) during lactation, using a structured, stepwise approach. As a first step, literature was screened to generate a preliminary version consisting of a pool of item subgroups. This preliminary version was subsequently reviewed during two focus groups (midwives: n = 4; pediatric nurses: n = 6), followed by a two-round online Delphi with experts (n = 7) to confirm item and scale content validity. This resulted in an instrument consisting of 33 questions and 5 specific clinica...

Erector spinae plane block reduces pain after laparoscopic cholecystectomy
Anaesthesist. 2021 Oct 18. doi: 10.1007/s00101-021-01015-5. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: After laparoscopic cholecystectomy patients have moderate pain in the early postoperative period. According to several studies an erector spinae plane (ESP) block can be a valuable part of multimodal analgesia. Our intention was to evaluate how ESP block influences postoperative pain scores and opioid consumption after laparoscopic cholecystectomy.METHODS: This single-blinded, prospective, randomized study included 60 patients undergoing laparoscopic cholecystectomy to receive either bilateral ESP block at the Th 7 level (n =...

Pharmacologic Therapy for Acute Pain
Am Fam Physician. 2021 Jul 1;104(1):63-72.ABSTRACTPharmacologic management of acute pain should be tailored for each patient, including a review of treatment expectations and a plan for the time course of prescriptions. Acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are first-line treatment options for most patients with acute mild to moderate pain. Topical NSAIDs are recommended for non-low back, musculoskeletal injuries. Acetaminophen is well tolerated; however, lower doses should be used in patients with advanced hepatic disease, malnutrition, or severe alcohol use disorder. Nonselective NSAIDs are effe...

Assessment of post-operative opioid prescribing practices in a community hospital ambulatory surgical center
CONCLUSIONS: One week after outpatient surgery, patients consumed one-third of physician-prescribed opioids, yet they reported high pain management satisfaction. Our study will inform the development of a patient-centered interdisciplinary perioperative education program to more effectively tailor multimodal pain management in ambulatory surgical patients and collaterally reduce the number of retained opioids.PMID:34259335 | DOI:10.5055/jom.2021.0634 (Source: Journal of Opioid Management)
