Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Anesthesiology Volume 55, Issue 25: Postoperative Analgesia: Elements of Successful Recovery.

The goal of this program is to improve patient recovery and the management of postoperative pain. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Implement strategies shown to speed patient recovery and increase comfort throughout the postoperative period.
2. Introduce adjunctive analgesic drugs that reduce reliance on opioids.
3. Consider therapies shown to reduce the duration of postoperative ileus.
4. Reduce postoperative pain in the patient with high opioid tolerance.
5. Cite evidence on the association between opiates and postoperative hyperalgesia.

The original programs were presented by Christopher M. Viscomi, MD, Professor of Anesthesiology, Fletcher Allen Health Care, University of Vermont College of Medicine, Burlington.
