Analgesia and Procedural Sedation

I didn’t actually like this lecture all that much, in part because I obviously disagree to some extent with the ideas expressed, but I try to remember to blog lectures I watch these days even if I don’t think they’re all that great. It’s a short lecture, but why not at least add a comment about urine drug screening and monitoring or patient selection/segmentation when you’re talking about patients whom you’re considering discharging with an opioid prescription? Recommending acupuncture in a pain management context? Etc.

Anyway, below a few links to stuff related to the coverage:

Pain Management in the Emergency Department.
Oligoanalgesia.
WHO analgesic ladder.
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
Ketorolac.
Fentanyl (“This medication should not be used to treat pain other than chronic cancer pain, especially short-term pain such as migraines or other headaches, pain from an injury, or pain after a medical or dental procedure.” …to put it mildly, that’s not the impression you get from watching this lecture…)
Parenteral opioids in emergency medicine – A systematic review of efficacy and safety.
Procedural Sedation (medscape).
