Pain Management

CanadiEM
CanadiEM - April 21, 2020 - By Jana Balakumaran
"Takeaways
  1. The goal of pain-management in the ED is not zero pain, but rather reaching an acceptable level for function.
  2. When choosing route of delivery, oral is often preferred unless the patient cannot tolerate PO meds.
  3. Consider a combination of non-opiates. Starting with 1000 mg Acetaminophen and 400 mg of Ibuprofen is an ED go-to for mild-moderate pain.
  4. Opiates should only be used if non-opiate agents are insufficient to treat the severity of pain that the patient endorses. When using opiates, start low and go slow!
  5. Treat pain before ordering your workup! Do not leave your patient suffering until you get results back."
