Acute Postoperative Pain Management After Major Limb Amputation in a Pediatric Patient: A Case Report.

J Perianesth Nurs 2019 Feb 8. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

Purpose: Although total prevention of phantom pain is difficult, pediatric patients requiring amputation benefit from an individualized combination of analgesic techniques for phantom pain reduction using a multimodal and interprofessional approach. This is especially useful in the event a single therapy is ineffective for total pain reduction, and may ultimately lead to a reduction in chronic pain development.

Design: Case report with multimodal and interprofessional approach. Read More

Perianesthesia Nursing Malpractice: Reducing the Risk of Litigation.

J Perianesth Nurs 2018 Dec 18. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Nurse Practitioner-Driven Optimization of Presurgical Testing.

J Perianesth Nurs 2018 Dec 12;33(6):887-894. Epub 2017 Oct 12.

Nurse practitioners play a pivotal role as members of the perioperative team. This article outlines the evolution of presurgical testing from the vantage of generic testing to one that is tailored to the patient's clinical presentation and the type of surgery to be performed, whether it is high, intermediate, or low risk. Emphasis is placed on indicated testing, screening tools to identify patients at risk for perioperative complications, the optimization of patients before undergoing major cancer surgery, and enhanced recovery after surgery.

The Power of Topical Anesthetics and Distraction for Peripheral Intravenous Catheter Placement in the Pediatric Perianesthesia Area.

Authors:
Heather A Martin

J Perianesth Nurs 2018 Dec 9;33(6):880-886. Epub 2017 Oct 9.

Placing a peripheral intravenous catheter is a painful procedure and produces much anxiety for the pediatric patient, as well as for their parents and nursing staff. There is a heightened need for having effective pain control during this process, which will lead to increased cooperation and decreased anxiety for the patient, making the placement of a peripheral intravenous catheter successful. Topical analgesics and distraction are powerful tools that can make inserting a peripheral intravenous catheter easier for the patient, and also easier for a nurse with limited pediatric experience.
