Acute pain management

Acute pain management

Acute pain management service at Northwell Health is an inpatient consult service that assists patients with postoperative, post-traumatic and other types of acute pain that require specialized interventions, such as epidural analgesia, intravenous patient controlled analgesia (IVPCA) and continuous peripheral nerve blocks. The goal is to safely provide optimal pain management with a balance of pain relief techniques and treatment of side effects.

The specialized team of clinicians for the acute pain management service includes a board-certified anesthesiologist, a pain management-certified nurse practitioner and registered nurses (RNs) with training in pain management.  The skilled professionals have expertise in postoperative pain control and provide coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Patients receiving acute pain management services are visited daily, and more often if necessary, by an anesthesiologist and registered nurse who evaluate and adjust the doses of the medications with an emphasis on patient comfort and safety.
