Abstract :

Pain is one of the main predictable postoperative adverse outcomes, and is reason for distress in patients. Adequate pain control is important for perioperative period. Any single analgesic may not be capable of providing best pain control with minimum or no side effect. Multimodal analgesia is combining different entities to decrease pain as well as the side effects of medications and improve patient satisfaction. Combination of drugs allows modulation of pain at various points in the neurochemical pathway, resulting in synergistic and/or additive analgesia which is corner stone of multimodal analgesia. Multimodal analgesia not only decreases pain and discomfort, but also decreases overall cost by decreasing length of stay. My talk will focus on concepts of multimodal analgesia, its advantages, different modalities used and its impact on patient care.
