Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Tonsillectomy Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Tonsillectomy mobile app is intended to be used by professionals involved in the acute care of children undergoing pain management after surgery or for painful medical procedures.
How does it work?
It is designed to provide evidence-based information on the assessment of pain and the efficacy of pain management strategies. The app includes advice on the assessment of pain including evidence levels and grade of recommendation specific to Tonsillectomy. Tonsillectomy (±adenoidectomy) is one of the most common procedures performed in children. Chronic or recurrent tonsillitis with tonsillar hyperplasia leading to upper airway obstruction e.g. in sleep apnea syndromes, is the most frequent indication for tonsillectomy. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
