    1. Epidural Infusion vs IV Patient Control Analgesia Ms Josephine PY Chen, RN

    2. Acute Pain Service Data PWH1/2003 – 12/2003 n=1793 PCA=1478, 80.5% CEI=261, 14.3% Others=54, 5.2%

    3. Service Data Cont’d Pain Score at termination (on exertion): PCA: • 0=3.5% CEI: • 0=20.9%

    4. Service Data Cont’d Pain Score at termination (on exertion): PCA • 8-10=3.2% CEI: • 8-10=3.5%

    5. Service Data Cont’d Satisfaction Score at termination: • PCA=49.2%> 8-10 • CEI=68.1% > 8-10

    6. Service Data Cont’d Premature Termination • CEI=11% • Because of :ineffective; haemodynamic unstable; catheter dislodged; signs of infection, etc.

    7. Epidural It works →comfortable PCA Re-educate Especially in elderly & children Compliance

    8. Education for PCA • Handset control • Timing • Rehab. activities involvement • Intervention for side effects: reassurance, medications, program, close monitoring

    9. Education for CEI • Beware of the epidural catheter • Allow mobilization • Beware of motor weakness / sensory deficit

    10. Which modalities require more nursing attention? • Epidural or PCA?

    11. Nursing attention • Both modalities • Crucial in first 24 hours

    12. Rare Same RR < 10/min If SpO2 < 95% on room air, O2 supplement Specific observationsRespiratory depressionEpidural PCA

    13. Rare Hallucination Rare Drowsy Dose related SedationEpidural PCA

    14. Hypotension Epidural Rule out : surgical complications; hypovolaemic; on antihypertensive; in subarachnoid PCA Rare

    15. Adjust infusion rate / rescue bolus Drug concentration Epidural catheter Adjust PCA program / bolus Education IV access Handset dislodge Side effects Pain ControlEpidural PCA

    16. Monitor BP/P Extension of motor & sensory blockade Routine No drastic side effects After rescue bolus Epidural PCA

    17. Signs of: infection local / systemic persistent / swing T↑38°C redness @ catheter site IV access Side effects Subsequent observationEpidural PCA

    18. Pre-placement Coagulation Epidural Exclude coagulopathy Stop anticoagulants PCA Nil Cautions

    19. Heparin Standard Heparin 5,000u • Avoid placement within 4-6 hours after a dose • Subsequent dose 2 hr later

    20. Low molecular weight heparin • Avoid placement within 12 hours after a dose • Subsequent dose 2 hours later

    21. Warfarin • Contraindicated

    22. No other opioids or sedatives Preferably no anticoagulants Rescue drug Ephedrine Same Not a concern Naloxane While receivingEpidural PCA

    23. Optimization • Maintain stable analgesic level • Low analgesic level takes time to titrate

    24. Co-analgesics Check clotting Stop anticoagulants SH: 6 hrs prior LMWH: 12 hrs Same Not a concern Before cessationEpidural PCA

    25. Tip intact Skin integrity Signs of infection Heparin/LMWH resume 2 hrs later Less concern CessationEpidural PCA

    26. Epidural site Motor / sensory function Unless indicated Subsequent FUEpidural PCA

    27. General Principles of Nursing Care • Analgesics ≠nursing care • Change position • Handle injured or swollen parts / tissues • Maintain body alignment • Prevent over taxing patient→↓pain threshold
