Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Mastoid and Middle Ear Surgery Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Mastoid and Middle Ear Surgery 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 Mastoid and Middle Ear Surgery. Mastoidectomy may be performed to remove infected tissue or cholesteatoma. As the incidence of chronic suppurative otitis media is declining, this surgery is now less frequently required. Middle ear surgery, such as reconstruction of a damaged tympanic membrane by placement of surgical grafts, may be associated with significant PONV. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
