Multimodal analgesia: not "too many" drugs, rather a safe and effective synergy (Proceedings)

August 1, 2011

Pain can be protective, but through the stress response it may also contribute significantly to patient morbidity and even mortality. Anxiety may contribute directly to the hyperalgesic state through cholecystikinin-mediated "nocebo" effect.

Chronic pain: nonpharmacologic therapy (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Our patient population has changed fairly dramatically in the last 10 years as our medical skills have progressed and we have become capable of supporting patients with advanced disease and advancing age. With this new set of patients comes a new set of problems, like chronic pain.

Adjunctive analgesic drugs: beyond NSAIDS and opioids (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

The framework of effective pain management systems rests solidly on the foundation of recognition/assessment, pre-emption, and using multiple modalities. Multiple modalities allow for intervention at several different places of the nociceptive pathway, increasing effectiveness and minimizing the need for high or protracted doses of any one particular drug.

Analgesia for cats (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Because we want to succeed! If we want to do the best medicine possible and give our patients the best chance to heal, then we have to treat pain. Pain initiates a fairly profound stress response and a sympathetic overdrive. Stress and autonomic imbalance are not benign and the cascade of side effects include gastrointestinal (GI) ileus, GI ulceration, clotting dysfunction, hypertension, tachycardia, tachyarrhythmias, and many others.

Understanding pain pathways and pharmacologic targets (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Good analgesic effect for patients with osteosaroma, especially those with metastatic diesease. Biphosphonates inhibit osteoclastic activitiy, thereby reducing bone resorption and they promote repair through stimulation of osteoblast differentiation and bone formation. They have poor oral absorption so are given by the IV route.

Speaking of pain: syndromes and terminology (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

You can never become good at pain management without understanding basic pain pathways. You will have trouble understanding pain pathways without understanding the terminology used to describe them.

Opioids: the good, the bad? and the future (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Synthetic opioids are powerful, useful tools to manage pain for one simple reason: Receptors for naturally-occurring opioids (endorphins, enkephalins) are distributed ubiquitously throughout the body and can be found in both central and peripheral tissues.

Anesthesia for patients with neurologic disease (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Veterinary patients can present for a variety of diseases that impact the neurological system. These patients can require anesthesia for stabilization, diagnostic procedures, or surgical correction of these diseases.

Multimodal approach to pain management analgesia: not "too much", rather a safe and effective synergy (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

The framework of effective pain management systems rests solidly on the foundation of recognition/assessment, pre-emption, and using multiple modalities. Multiple modalities allow for intervention at several different places of the nociceptive pathway, increasing effectiveness and minimizing the need for high or protracted doses of any one particular drug.
