With Dr Tim Suharto, Staff Specialist Anaesthetist at Nepean Hospital, New South Wales, Australia
Postoperative pain is a common clinical scenario in hospitals for junior doctors. Sound postoperative pain management using multimodal analgesia provides many benefits other than patient comfort. It reduces postoperative pulmonary complications, the neuro-endocrine stress response and the incidence of myocardial ischaemia. It also promotes early mobilisation and discharge.
