Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Cardiac Surgery (Sternotomy) Mobile App

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 Cardiac Surgery (sternotomy). Classically, cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary by-pass (CPB) will involve division of the bony sternum to obtain access to the heart and great vessels. Anticoagulation with heparin is maintained throughout CPB, which has implications for the use of regional techniques. Postoperative patients are nursed in ICU areas, often with a short period of mechanical ventilation prior to extubation of the trachea. Postoperative analgesia with intravenous opioids, most frequently morphine or fentanyl, has been standard practice for more than 20 years in most institutions. A GoCanvas account can be specified as being HIPAA compliant.

How It Works
I’m not a tech guy and I was able to pick this thing up in probably an hour, and actually start to build apps. I’ve done them over lunch when I’ve gotten frustrated with a process that didn’t exist in our company. So for non tech people who’ve got a problem, the support here is awesome and I’d recommend it to anybody, not just in our industry.
