Abstract:
Adequate pain control post total knee replacement (TKR) is essential in enabling ambulation, early physiotherapy, and timely discharge. Effective pain control is acknowledged to be difficult in this population. Most TKR patients have analgesia via an epidural PCA machine with a continuous and bolus dose program. The epidural is generally discontinued on the first post-operative day and the TKR patient is transitioned to oral and IV pain medications. The purpose of this non-experimental retrospective study was to determine if using the ON-Q Pain Ball, in addition to epidural analgesia, was more effective in reducing post-operative pain. A convenience sample (N=40) was used to review charts of TKR patients aged 30-90 in one metropolitan hospital. A secondary goal was to determine the effect of the ON-Q Pain Ball on length of hospital stay. Results indicated a significant difference in pain scores between treatment groups. Please contact the primary investigator for more information.
