Postoperative Analgesia in the Emergency General Surgery Patient2021

Type: Update Practice Management Guideline (PMG)
Category: Emergency General Surgery
Committee Liaison: Asanthi M. Ratnasekera, DO, FACS

Team leader(s)

Adequate postoperative analgesia plays a significant role in the recovery of the emergency general surgery patient. Literature from other specialties has demonstrated the importance of multimodal analgesia in improving pain control and limiting narcotic use. A Practice Management Guideline regarding multimodal analgesia would provide an important and necessary resource to acute care surgeons as there is no standardized resource regarding multimodal analgesia in this patient population.
