UNLABELLED Most patients who undergo surgical procedures experience acute postoperative pain, but evidence suggests that less than half report adequate postoperative pain relief. Many preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative interventions and management strategies are available for reducing and managing postoperative pain. The American Pain Society, with input from the American Society of Anesthesiologists, commissioned an interdisciplinary expert panel to develop a clinical practice… Expand

[Perioperative analgesia with nonopioid analgesics : Joint interdisciplinary consensus-based recommendations of the German Pain Society, the German Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine and the German Society of Surgery].
TLDR
The use of nonopioid analgesics as part of a perioperative multimodal concept should be approved and established as an interdisciplinary and interprofessional concept for the adequate treatment of postoperative pain. Expand
Research Gaps in Practice Guidelines for Acute Postoperative Pain Management in Adults: Findings From a Review of the Evidence for an American Pain Society Clinical Practice Guideline.
TLDR
Evidence gaps including optimal methods and timing of perioperative patient education, nonpharmacological modalities, combinations of analgesic techniques, monitoring of patient response to treatment, techniques for neuraxial and regional analgesia, and organizational care delivery models are identified. Expand
American Society for Enhanced Recovery and Perioperative Quality Initiative Joint Consensus Statement on Perioperative Management of Patients on Preoperative Opioid Therapy.
TLDR
The fourth Perioperative Quality Initiative brought together an international team of multidisciplinary experts, including anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, surgeons, pain specialists, neurologists, nurses, and other experts with the objective of providing consensus recommendations to minimize opioid-related complications. Expand
Postoperative pain management in obstetrics and gynecology
TLDR
It would be appropriate to develop procedure-related concepts of analgesia based on the existing body of evidence and a surgeon’s individual experience in dealing with the procedures and substances could be more significant than the theoretical advantages demonstrated in preceding investigations. Expand
Recommendations from the Italian intersociety consensus on Perioperative Anesthesa Care in Thoracic surgery (PACTS) part 2: intraoperative and postoperative care
TLDR
Recommendations for anesthesia practice in patients undergoing elective lung resection for lung cancer should help clinicians to improve intraoperative and postoperative management, and thereby achieve better postoperative outcomes in thoracic surgery patients. Expand
Important considerations with respect to reducing the transition from acute to persistent postoperative pain
TLDR
Over the past 5 years, a few key concepts in the management of acute postoperative pain have moved to the forefront including patient-centered and procedure-specific education, nonpharmacological pain management strategies, utilization of a functional-based recovery assessment, ensuring an adequate transition from hospital to home pain management and exploring the role of a transitional pain service (TPS). Expand
Perioperative Pain Management and Opioid Stewardship: A Practical Guide
TLDR
This review seeks to summarize and integrate key recommendations into a “roadmap” for institutional adoption of perioperative analgesic and opioid optimization strategies, and presents a brief review of applicable statistics and definitions as impetus for prioritizing both analgesia and opioid exposure in surgical quality improvement. Expand
Non-invasive patient-controlled analgesia in the management of acute postoperative pain in the hospital setting
TLDR
As effective and safe alternatives to conventional PCA, and with the added benefits of being non-invasive, easy to use and allowing early patient mobilization, the newer PCA systems may complement multimodal approaches, or potentially replace certain regimens, in hospitalized patients with acute postoperative pain. Expand
Practice Patterns and Treatment Challenges in Acute Postoperative Pain Management: A Survey of Practicing Physicians
TLDR
Opioids remain an integral component of multimodal acute analgesic therapy for acute postoperative pain in hospitalized patients and the use of all IV analgesic medications is limited by concerns over AEs, particularly with opioids and in high-risk patients. Expand
Recent advances in acute pain management: understanding the mechanisms of acute pain, the prescription of opioids, and the role of multimodal pain therapy
TLDR
It is proposed that a fundamental principle in acute pain management is identifying patients who are most at risk and providing an “opioid free anesthesia and postoperative analgesia” by using a multimodal approach that includes regional anesthesia and minimizing the dose and the duration of opioid prescription.

Brief review: Perioperative management of the patient with chronic non-cancer pain
TLDR
Key points include the concept of opioid equivalency, tolerance, the role of adjunctive medications, and the need for good communication between the surgical team, the acute pain service and the patient who is often anxious about the upcoming procedure due to previous unpleasant experiences with poor pain control in hospital. Expand
Massage as adjuvant therapy in the management of acute postoperative pain: a preliminary study in men.
TLDR
Massage may be a useful adjuvant therapy for the management of acute postoperative pain and its greatest effect appears to be on the affective component of the pain. Expand
Postoperative Pain Experience: Results from a National Survey Suggest Postoperative Pain Continues to Be Undermanaged
TLDR
Despite an increased focus on pain management programs and the development of new standards for pain management, many patients continue to experience intense pain after surgery and additional efforts are required to improve patients’ postoperative pain experience. Expand
American Society for Pain Management Nursing guidelines on monitoring for opioid-induced sedation and respiratory depression.
TLDR
There is an urgent need to educate all members of the health care team about the dangers and potential attributes of administration of sedating medications concomitant with opioid analgesia and the importance of initiating rational multimodal analgesic plans to help avoid adverse events. Expand
A Systematic Review of Randomized Trials Evaluating Regional Techniques for Postthoracotomy Analgesia
TLDR
Either thoracic epidural analgesia with LA plus opioid or continuous paravertebral block with LA can be recommended and intrathecal opioid or intercostal nerve block are recommended despite insufficient duration of analgesia, which requires the use of supplementary systemic analgesia. Expand
Assessment and management of postoperative pain in children.
TLDR
It is suggested that postoperative pediatric pain relief may be inadequate, and recent advances in pain assessment and measurement in all age groups, particularly with verbal children and the new self-report measures are discussed. Expand

TLDR
Strategies for identification of patients at risk and for prevention and possible treatment of this important entity of chronic pain are outlined. Expand

TLDR
Despite heightened awareness and clinical advancements in pain management, there has been little improvement in post-surgical analgesia as measured by this survey of post-Surgical patients. Expand
Perioperative ketamine for acute postoperative pain.
TLDR
Ketamine in subanaesthetic dose (that is a dose which is below that required to produce anaesthesia) is effective in reducing morphine requirements in the first 24 hours after surgery. Expand
