Chapter 24 discusses patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), a conceptual framework of analgesia delivery which addresses inadequate analgesia. PCA is not limited to a single drug route or mode of administration. Patients have immediate access to opioids; analgesia management, at least in part, is under patient control. Abstract. Patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) has successfully made the transition from a research tool for the investigation of pain, to a wider clinical utility as method of pain control Reliable and sophisticated PCA systems have been commercially available for some time The technique has been most commonly used for control of postoperative pain, but has also been successfully .

Moderate or severe pain are important sources of complications as well as morbidity and mortality in the postoperative period after surgical procedures.

This is a groundbreaking new book on the very latest system of post-operative pain control: Patient-Controlled Analgesia.

This technique allows patients, within safety limits set by doctors and supervised by nurses, to get rapid relief by administering their required dosage of pain relieving drug : $ Patient-controlled analgesia has several advantages over more traditional dosing regimens.

In particular, PCA systems allow the patient to better match his or her need for analgesic medication to the dose to treat a specific amount of pain at any given point in time—that is, as pain fluctuates, the patient can self-administer more or less.
