Patient Controlled Analgesia


NURSES,

I guess we are all familiar with PATIENT CONTROLLED ANALGESIA.
HERE ARE SOME HELPFUL POINTERS :
- FOLLOW MD ORDERS
- ALWAYS MONITOR YOUR PATIENT'S NEUROLOGICAL AND RESPIRATORY STATUS.
It is important to remember that narcotics may depress neurological status and respirations.
- Advise patient of how to assess pain and USE PCA . NO ONE ELSE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO PRESS THE BUTTON FOR PAIN.
