Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Vitreoretinal Surgery Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Vitreoretinal 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 Vitreoretinal Surgery. Vitreoretinal and retinal detachment surgery are associated with significant postoperative pain and PONV, but there have been relatively few controlled trials of analgesia in children. Supplemental local anaesthetic techniques may have a role but this has not been fully evaluated. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
