Enter a New World of Postoperative Pain Management
Hosted by Heron
The first 72 hours after surgery are the most painful. Uncontrolled pain can impede patient recovery. Inflammation peaks around 24 hours postoperatively, remains relatively high through the first 72 hours, and can limit the efficacy of local anesthetics.
Generic local anesthetics are not designed to provide pain relief beyond 8 to 12 hours. Most longer-acting local anesthetics, including liposomal bupivacaine and formulations delivered via wound infiltration catheters or pumps, inconsistently provide pain relief beyond 12 to 24 hours.
There is an innovative local anesthetic proven to manage pain better than standard-of-care bupivacaine HCl solution through 72 hours.
Healthcare providers now have a tool to manage postoperative pain, which is applied directly into the surgical site via needle-free instillation. Learn how this dual-acting local anesthetic can potentially benefit your patients.
