Good Practice in Postoperative and Procedural Pain: Thoracotomy 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 Thoracotomy. Access to the lungs, pleura and intrathoracic structures is obtained by an intercostals incision and separation and retraction of the ribs. Typical procedures include ligation of PDA (patent ductus arteriosus), resection of aortic co-arctation, lung biopsy or partial resection, pneumonectomy, repair of tracheoesphageal fistula. Considerable pain can be expected following classical thoracotomy incision. Recently VATS (video assisted thoracoscopic surgery) a minimally invasive technique has been used for some relatively minor thoracic procedures e.g. lung biopsy or smaller lung resections. 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.
