49. Complementary and alternative therapies for post-caesarean pain. (Abstract)

Complementary and alternative therapies for post-caesarean pain. Pain after caesarean sections (CS) can affect the well-being of the mother and her ability with her newborn. Conventional pain-relieving strategies are often underused because of concerns about the adverse maternal and neonatal effects. Complementary alternative therapies (CAM) may offer an alternative for post-CS pain.To assess the effects of CAM for post-caesarean pain.We searched Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth's Trials (...) Register, LILACS, PEDro, CAMbase, ClinicalTrials.gov and the WHO International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP) (6 September 2019), and checked the reference lists of retrieved articles.Randomised controlled trials (RCTs), including quasi-RCTs and cluster-RCTs, comparing CAM, alone or associated with other forms of pain relief, versus other treatments or placebo or no treatment, for the treatment of post-CS pain.Two review authors independently performed study selection, extracted data

Nonpharmacologic and Pharmacologic Management of Acute Pain From Non-Low Back, Musculoskeletal Injuries in Adults: A Clinical Guideline From the American College of Physicians and American Academy of Family Physicians. The American College of Physicians (ACP) and American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) developed this guideline to provide clinical recommendations on nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic management of acute pain from non-low back, musculoskeletal injuries in adults (...) in the outpatient setting. The guidance is based on current best available evidence about benefits and harms, taken in the context of costs and patient values and preferences. This guideline does not address noninvasive treatment of low back pain, which is covered by a separate ACP guideline that has also been endorsed by AAFP.This guideline is based on a systematic evidence review on the comparative efficacy and safety of nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic management of acute pain from non-low back

56. Medications for pain relief during active phase of labour

Medications for pain relief during active phase of labour Summary. Medications for pain relief during active phase of labour Labour pain during a vaginal delivery is complex and dynamic, and the woman’s subjective experience plays a role. The pain intensity has been compared with the amputation of a finger in the literature. Therefore, analgesia is often necessary. It is important that a woman in labour is supported and guided in her choice of medical pain reliefs without being pressured (...) into accepting the doctor’s or the midwife’s preferences. Furthermore, medical pain relief can only be a supplement to competent staff in the delivery room. The woman should still be guided and supported throughout the delivery. The guideline group consisted of junior and senior obstetricians, anaesthesiologists, clinical pharmacologists as well as midwives who went through all available literature considered relevant before developing the guidelines according to the Oxford level of evidence.
