Opioid Use Disorder: The Timeline For Medication Assisted Therapy, 2021 Arcadia University
Opioid Use Disorder: The Timeline For Medication Assisted Therapy, Alexander Cristofori
Opioid Use Disorder is patterns of opioid use leading to withdrawal, giving up important life events in order to use opioids, and excessive time spent using opioids, to name a few diagnostic criteria. The clinical progression of the disorder involves periods of acute exacerbation and remission that are cyclic in nature. Treatment is most effective when it includes both pharmacological and psychosocial modalities, referred to as medication assisted therapy (MAT). Three drugs used commonly in MAT-based treatment for OUD from oldest to newest include Methadone, Buprenorphine-naloxone, and Naltrexone. Treatment program models that prioritize total abstinence from the addictive substance attached ...

Evaluating The Preemptive Use Of Ofirmev To Address Post-Cesarean Pain, Kris Huerta
DNP Final Project Depository
Uncontrolled postpartum pain has been linked to increased opioid use, increased risk for opioid dependency, depression, and the development of persistent pain (Bateman et al., 2016). The purpose of this project is to assess the use of a preemptive dose of Ofirmev (Tylenol, acetaminophen, paracetamol) 1,000 mg IV in decreasing post-cesarean pain and consequently opioid usage within the first 24-hour postoperative period. This project will evaluate documented pain scores charted in the EPIC charting system by the obstetrics nurses at Hendricks Regional Health. The 24-hour postoperative pain scores of cesarean patients who received acetaminophen before cesarean section will be ...

Cooper Rowan Medical Journal
The purpose of this review is to summarize the recent literature focusing on intravenous (IV) administration of commonly used anesthetics, including midazolam, pentobarbital/ thiopental, propofol, and ketamine in the treatment of status epilepticus (SE). Anesthetics should be reserved as third-line therapy for the treatment of SE when benzodiazepines and other second-line agents fail to terminate the seizure. We have reviewed the literature related to the treatment of status epilepticus, refractory status epilepticus, super-refractory status epilepticus, anesthetics, midazolam, pentobarbital/thiopental, propofol, and ketamine. This paper focuses on the pharmacology, dosages, major side effects, and clinical use of IV anesthetics in the ...

COVID-19 Publications by UMMS Authors
BACKGROUND: A primary concern in the use of EBP in these patients is the possibility of seeding the virus in the CNS. Another important concern is related to the known hypercoagulable state in COVID-19 positive patients and associated organ dysfunction that may alter the metabolism of anticoagulants. The safety of the providers performing the EBP, the position of the patient and choices for image guidance (blind, fluoroscopic) are also key considerations to review. It is also important to explore the current state of knowledge about using allogenic instead of autologous blood as well as emerging techniques to eliminate the coronavirus ...

OBJECTIVE: We estimated the use of prescribed analgesics and adjuvants among nursing home residents without cancer who reported pain at their admission assessment, in relation to resident-reported pain severity.
METHODS: Medicare Part D claims were used to define 3 classes of analgesics and 7 classes of potential adjuvants on the 21st day after nursing home admission (or the day of discharge for residents discharged before that date) among 180,780 residents with complete information admitted between January 1, 2011 and December 9, 2016, with no cancer diagnosis.
RESULTS: Of these residents, 27.9% reported mild pain, 46.6% moderate pain ...
Managing Chronic Pain Through Advancements In Transcranial Brain Stimulation Technology Currently Used For Depression, 2020 University of South Dakota
Managing Chronic Pain Through Advancements In Transcranial Brain Stimulation Technology Currently Used For Depression, Ashley N. Skinner
The purpose of this thesis is to bring attention to alternatives to using analgesics or painkillers and potentially addictive opioid analgesics. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) has been proven successful in treating medication-resistant depression. This literature review will look at the links between pain and depression and examine adaptations to TMS coils in hopes of being able to stimulate the regions of the brain that interpret pain. By looking at current advancements in TMS, we can work towards adapting TMS to stimulate deeper regions. The final section of this thesis will examine how making these alternatives more popular will impact pain ...

Availability Of Pain Medications For Npo Patients, Anna Augustin Do, Kyle Borodunovich Do, Sean Quinonez Do, Furqan Haq, My Myers Md
In recent years, the opioid epidemic has been a key catalyst in changing the medical standards for treating both acute and chronic pain. Instead of relying heavily on narcotics for pain management, practitioners are not encouraged to adapt a non-pharmacologic, non-opioid approach to analgesia. While many guidelines have been set to standardize outpatient pain management, the rules surrounding inpatient analgesia are limited or lacking.

Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine Publications
The study of the past with regards to medical history has been an underemphasized component of the medical school curriculum for several reasons.
These have included the lack of direct or immediate clinical impact, the emergence of new disciplines such as medical ethics, expansion of the existing knowledge base, as well as a lack of research grants and funding. The curriculum in graduate medical education struggles to cope with the explosion of new information related to basic and applied sciences. The elimination of questions related to history in certifying examinations could be considered a fatal blow. This study explored the ...

The Effect Of The Implementation Of A Quarterly Triad Tool In The Pain Clinic Setting On The Assessment And Mitigation Of Risks In Patients On Chronic Opioid Therapy, Caroline Asava
Evidence-Based Practice Project Reports
The concurrent use of opioids and benzodiazepines (BZDs poses a formidable challenge for clinicians who manage chronic pain. While the escalating use of opioid analgesics for the treatment of chronic pain and the concomitant rise in opioid-related abuse and misuse are widely recognized trends, the contribution of combination use of BZDs, alcohol, and/or other sedative agents to opioid-related morbidity and mortality is underappreciated, even when these agents are used appropriately. Patients with chronic pain who use opioid analgesics along with BZDs have a defined increase in rates of adverse events, overdose, and death, warranting close monitoring. To improve patient ...

The purpose of this study is to compare postoperative pain scores between children undergoing tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy (T&A) surgery and their parents, identify potential predictors for this disagreement, and determine possible impact on analgesic administration.
This is a prospective longitudinal study conducted with children undergoing outpatient T&A in 4 major tertiary hospitals and their parents. Children and their parents were enrolled prior to surgery and completed baseline psychological instruments assessing parental anxiety (STAI), parental coping style (MBSS), child temperament (EAS) and parental medication administration attitude questionnaire (MAQ). Postoperatively, parents and children completed at-home pain severity ratings (Faces Pain Scale-Revised, children; Numeric Rating Scale, parents) on postoperative recovery days 1, 2, and 3, reflecting an overall pain level for the past 24 h. Parents also completed a log of analgesic administration. Based on postoperative pain scores, parent-child dyads were classified as overestimators (i.e., parents rated their child's pain higher than children rated their own pain), in agreement (i.e., rating in agreement), or underestimators (i.e., parents rated their child's pain lower than children rated their own pain).
