Epidural Analgesia in Acute Pain Management (Middleton, Epidural Analgesia in Acute Pain Management)
Epidurals are increasingly popular and have become more versatile, with applications in adult surgery, trauma, obstetrics and paediatric practice. This book of best practice guidelines aims to help develop and improve patient care, stimulate learning and highlight ideas for nursing research. It can be used as a quick reference guide for clinical practice or as a framework for developing individual local epidural services and practice guidelines.
An overview of the nature and frequency of the observations required for close monitoring of patients and a practical guide to the removal of the catheter are also provided. Clinical governance and competency-based training are also addressed, and a framework provided to fit the training into the Agenda for Change Knowledge and Skills framework.
