Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Upper Limb Surgery Mobile App
The Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Upper Limb 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 Upper Limb Surgery. Surgery on the upper limb is most commonly performed for plastic and orthopaedic procedures of hand and forearm, often following trauma. Local anaesthesia of the brachial plexus prior to surgery is frequently used. There is some controversy regarding the most safe and reliable approach to the brachial plexus. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.
