Perioperative Medicine

Part 1

Figure 1: This figure illustrates the core components of providing optimal analgesia.  Pain after surgery can have profound effects on patient recovery.  However, the complete elimination of pain may also have untoward effects, as listed in the figure. Optimal analgesia after surgery is an approach to pain control that facilitates a positive patient experience through optimized patient comfort that facilitates functional recovery while minimizing adverse drug events.

Figure 1: This figure illustrates a structured approach as a rescue plan for a patient experiencing suboptimal pain control.  Except in extreme cases, this step-by-step process should lead to appropriate management that continues the principles being employed with the goal of delivering optimal analgesia.
