Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The diagnoses of acute pain affects more than 60% of patients during recovery from anesthesia. Acute pain is associated with neurodegenerative changes, such as tachycardia, hypertension, sweating, pallor, agitation, and anxiety. The aim of this study was to compare the manifestations of acute pain in patients during recovery from anesthesia, related to preventive analgesia in the operating room (OR). The sample consisted of two groups of patients during anesthesia recovery, with group one comprised of 20 patients who received no preventive analgesia in the OR, and the second group of 20 patients who received some type of analgesia in the OR, such as opioids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. The results showed that 20 (100.0%) of patients in group 1 felt pain, characterized as severe pain, and of these 16 (80.0%) had two or more neurovegetative changes, such as tachycardia, hypertension, and pallor, lasting 30 to 60 minutes for improvement after analgesic administration. Of the group 2 patients who received analgesia in the OR, four (20.0%) had pain considered moderate, with a sign neurovegetative like pallor. We conclude that preventive analgesia in the OR reduces the neurovegetative manifestations triggered by acute pain, providing better rehabilitation, decreasing pulmonary, cardiac, early ambulation, lower incidence of thromboembolism, reduced hospitalization time, and comfort the patient.
