7Questions on roundsHow can we reliably assess this patients pain?Can we use his vital signs as an indication?Are there other therapeutic options?What about his mood?

What is the most common IV analgesic used to treat acute pain in your ICU?https://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/RPsozuwjSQZZ1BK10Pain in the ICUDefinitionsScope of the problemBarriersConsequencesAssessment toolsApproachIASPUnpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damageCan only be reported by the person experiencing it
Definition and backgroundPain: a unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage (International Association for the Study of Pain)Key points: Subjective nature of pain; Can only be reported by the person experiencing itMost patients in ICU experience pain and identify it as a great source of stressAs well (as per IASP) the inability to communicate verbally does not negative the possibility that an individual experiencing pain and is in need of pain-relieving treatment)

19DefinitionsScope of the problemBarriersConsequencesAssessment toolsApproachPain assessment in the real worldConfirm the presence of painVital signs as a trigger to perform assessment?Routine BPS assessment? How often?Consider etiologyIndividualized treatment Post-treatment assessmentFrequent reassessment
Pain in the ICUEvery patient is different what ever approach works for one patient not work for anotherShould assessment be part of routine patient assessment, and if so, how often. Can vital signs be used certainly can provide clues that there may be pain, but little correlation between changes in Vitals and reports of pain. Consider the etiology may help indiviualize pain is it realted to rib fractures or chest tube (suggesting an NSAID or gabapentin may be helpful), or is it due to chronic pain, or post-surgical pain, is it in anticipation of a procedure such as a dressing changeImportant to redo the scale a short time after a drug is given but how long after IV? How long after PO? Need to know the dispositional characteristics of the drugs. 20Back to Case 137M, multiple gun shot woundsPersistent 10/10 abdominal painUnresponsive to narcoticsWhat worked for him?Scaled back regular hydromorphone to 2 mg q4hStopped routine bowel careAggressive mobilizationDramatic response to trial of methylphenidate (Ritalin)Pain in the ICUStarted methylphenidate able to focus on other things other than pain21Toxicologic AntidotesOutlineCase based review of the assessment and treatment of pain in the adult ICUReview the presentation and management of excited deliriumWhats pain got to do with it?

If there are physically restrained and still figthing against the restraints, then the chemical sedation is NOT sufficient. Physical struggle is a much greater contributor to the catecholamine surge than any drug or withdrawal that the may be experiencing. These patients are usually dry thus all should receive fluid resuscitation
