Pain Therapy PROMOTING PROGRESS TOGETHER

Patient individual pain therapy
Adequate pain management along with anesthesia is crucial for medical and surgical procedures as well as during the post-operative phase. In order to effectively manage pain while reducing opioid consumption including their associated side effects, multimodal pain management strategies have become an important part of the peri-operative care process. These have and will increasingly replace general anesthetic and analgesic approaches in favor of combinations of regional and local methods such as neuraxial anesthesia (spinal/epidural approach), regional nerve blocks, or direct wound infiltration.
Pain relief is a fundamental human right. Yet the World Health Organization (WHO) states a poor global availability of adequate pain treatment.1 However, in contrast, the possibilities to avoid suffering increase constantly.
Through constructive dialog with healthcare professionals B. Braun supports its partners in leveraging all options of pain treatment. As a true system partner we offer access to products, services as well as training in general anesthesia, regional anesthesia and acute pain management to help to manage the cost and complexity of healthcare delivery through improved patient and health economic outcomes.
We join forces with healthcare professionals who strive to perform cutting-edge multimodal pain management strategies as an important part of a patient’s pathway. Because we want to contribute to relieve pain of patients worldwide.
Focus on safety
Protecting all people involved in healthcare and supporting healthcare professionals in safeguarding their patients is our responsibility. Thus we share our entire expertise and experience to enhance safety in medical organizations.
Because working conditions in healthcare are highly demanding, every service and every product B. Braun develops is meant to contribute to improved patient care. Solutions like infusion pumps featuring drug libraries, systems for PCA and TCI, which can be operated safely and remotely, or needles and catheters with an advanced design for improved tactile feedback or better visualization, are dedicated towards enhancing safety.
Elaborating on all options in acute pain therapy, B. Braun provides access to state-of-the-art methodologies, for the benefit of patients and healthcare professionals.
Progress for us, is making a difference in the lives of patients and caregivers. Building on the insights into patient care that we have gained over the years through constructive dialog with our customers, we have found that minimizing risks is one of the main demands of both, the patients and the caregivers. As a result, we have always committed ourselves to developing products and solutions which minimize potential risks and hazards, helping promote an evolution of patient care practices together with our customers.
Spinal bevels with ‘Pencil-point tip geometry’ have been shown to minimize the risk of post-dural puncture headache (PDPH).1 Total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) via a target controlled infusion (TCI) makes anesthesia a more straightforward and user-friendly technique for the caregiver, while at the same time offering a faster and more comfortable patient recovery. And triple monitoring is a multimodal safety approach for peripheral nerveblocks that helps to reduce the risk of nerve injuries. All this is progress in the eyes of patients and healthcare professionals.
Being able to “save time”, has different advantages across the patient care spectrum. For nurses, this could mean an opportunity to better care for more patients. For hospitals, this could mean more improved processes and resulting cost savings. For the patients, this would mean recovering faster with less pain.
Each of these views is important to us. Thus we strive to create better conditions to accelerate recovery by improving processes in postoperative pain management.
One crucial factor is to select the adequate treatment for each patient and indication. It is clear: the more selective the anesthesia and analgesia strategy is, the faster recovery will happen. B. Braun offers indication and context adapted anesthesia and multimodal pain management options for patient-individual treatment.
