Study Adds to Evidence That Racial and Economic Factors Affect Surgical Pain Management

A “look back” analysis of more than 600 major colorectal surgeries using a “checklist” tool has added further evidence that racial and socioeconomic disparities may occur during many specific stages of surgical care, particularly in pain management.

Treating Acute Pain in Opioid-Dependent Patients – Review and Recommendations

As healthcare providers see more patients with opioid abuse and dependence, they face a difficult challenge: What's the best way to manage acute pain without contributing to the patient's opioid use disorder (OUD)? A review and recommendations for acute pain treatment in patients with OUD is presented in in the September/October Journal of Trauma Nursing, official publication of the Society of Trauma Nurses. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

Patient Finds Relief From Abnormal Menstrual Cycles with Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy Alternative

After years of pain and excessive and prolonged menstrual cycle bleeding, one Alabama woman found relief at UAB after undergoing a less-invasive fibroid embolization procedure in lieu of a hysterectomy, a major surgery with a long recovery time.

Study Adds to Evidence That Racial and Economic Factors Affect Surgical Pain Management

A “look back” analysis of more than 600 major colorectal surgeries using a “checklist” tool has added further evidence that racial and socioeconomic disparities may occur during many specific stages of surgical care, particularly in pain management. A report of the study’s findings by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine, published Sept. 11 in Diseases of the Colon & Rectum, documents the specific ways in which historically disadvantaged populations receive less optimal pain management and are placed on “enhanced recovery” protocols later than their wealthier and white counterparts.

Consciousness Depends on Tubulin Vibrations Inside Neurons, Anesthesia Study Suggests

Anesthetic gases selectively block consciousness, sparing non-conscious brain activities. Thus the specific mechanism of anesthetic action could reveal how the brain produces consciousness.
