OBJECTIVES: Low-dose ketamine has been used perioperatively for pain control and may be a useful adjunct to intravenous (IV) opioids in the control of acute pain in the emergency department (ED). The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of low-dose ketamine as an adjunct to morphine versus standard care with morphine alone for the treatment of acute moderate to severe pain among ED patients. METHODS: A double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial with three study groups was conducted at a large, urban academic ED over a 10-month period...

OBJECTIVE: Certain patient populations may be unable to communicate their needs in the emergency department (ED) setting, and the ability to communicate varies between age groups. We aim to determine if there are differences in pain management of acute long-bone fracture (ALBF) among age groups presenting to the ED. METHODS: This study was a retrospective chart review of a consecutive sample of subjects over 13 months. Fracture site, subject age, arrival time, whether pain medication was administered, and time to initial administration were recorded...

INTRODUCTION: While the benefits of regional analgesia (RA) for preoperative pain relief in hip fracture (HF) in elderly patients are well recognised, this service is yet to be established in many UK emergency departments (EDs). We set out to discover how widely RA is adopted in the UK EDs. METHODS: In April-July 2010, we conducted a postal survey of 218 UK EDs, followed up with fax reminders for non-respondents. RESULTS: A total of 147/218 (67%) EDs completed the survey...
