The patient presses the handset to get a bolus of morphine intravenously. 2. PCA provides blood levels of morphine and hence analgesia that are rapidly titrated to the patients’ needs. v. opioids are administered by a nurse, can be used for those unable to operate the handset themselves (typically children). (b) Epidural infusions. g. g. fentanyl) are used. The epidural can be inserted in the lumbar or thoracic region. 4. g. brachial plexus. 6 Nausea and vomiting. g. phenothiazine (prochlorperazine) 5-HT3 receptor antagonists (ondansetron), steroids (dexamethasone).

Rapid equilibration between brain and inhaled concentration is due to its low blood/gas solubility coefficient. It is much more soluble than nitrogen, diffusing into air-filled spaces quicker than nitrogen can diffuse out. Situations where this might be a problem include: • endotracheal cuff expansion (potential for mucosal damage); • bowel expansion; • a simple pneumothorax might become a tension pneumothorax; • air emboli (a small insignificant embolus might enlarge); • tympanic membrane bulging (middle ear surgery).

In addition to the usual pulse, blood pressure and respiratory rate measurements, sedation should be monitored as it may reflect excess opioid administration. Nausea and vomiting should also be assessed. With epidurals, the height of the block must also be measured. Onset of severe weakness and back pain may indicate an epidural haematoma/abscess and requires urgent investigation (MRI). Many hospitals have a scoring system for sedation, nausea and vomiting and leg weakness. (b) Pain score. The documentation of pain scores, either on a numerical scale or a visual analogue scale, both at pain and at rest, should be undertaken.
