22. Efficacy of Intravenous Acetaminophen in Periimplantation Pain of Cardiac Electronic Devices: A Randomized Double-Blinded Study. (PubMed)

Efficacy of Intravenous Acetaminophen in Periimplantation Pain of Cardiac Electronic Devices: A Randomized Double-Blinded Study. Although intravenous acetaminophen has been administered to reduce postoperative pain, it has not been used during cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) implantation.This was a randomized double-blinded interventional study.Thirty-two patients who were referred for new CIED implantation during July 2012 until April 2013 randomly received placebo or 1 g (...) of intravenous acetaminophen. All patients were treated with local anesthesia. Pain score during incision, pocket creation, and in the recovery room, and the patients' need for analgesics during the 6 hours after the procedure were recorded in both groups.Seventeen and 15 patients received acetaminophen and placebo, respectively. Pain scores in patients treated with acetaminophen were significantly lower (4.4 vs 2.9, P = .004), and they received less analgesics (17% vs 60%, P = .014).Intravenous

23. Preoperative cesarean delivery intravenous acetaminophen treatment for postoperative pain control: a randomized double-blinded placebo control trial

Preoperative cesarean delivery intravenous acetaminophen treatment for postoperative pain control: a randomized double-blinded placebo control trial The United States currently has an opioid use disorder epidemic and research evaluating ways to minimize the use of opioids postsurgery are needed. One of these options is intravenous acetaminophen. If the use of preoperative intravenous acetaminophen was found to be effective for cesarean delivery, this would be beneficial for both the mother (...) and breast-feeding neonate.The primary study objective was to see if maternal opioid use was significantly less in the postoperative period for the study group that received 1 g of intravenous acetaminophen preoperatively compared with a control group that received placebo. The secondary objectives were to evaluate maternal length of stay and pain scores postoperatively, and assess the acetaminophen level in cord blood at delivery.This study was a prospective double-blinded randomized placebo-controlled

Effect of Preemptive Acetaminophen Administered Within 1 Hour of General Anesthesia on Gastric Residual Volume and pH in Children. Determine whether preoperative oral acetaminophen increases gastric residual volume and lowers gastric pH.Prospective, randomized.Healthy children, 1 to 14 years, having elective magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) were randomized to oral acetaminophen within 1 hour of induction versus fasting. Gastric volume and pH were measured immediately after intubation. Adverse (...) events were documented from induction through 72 hours post MRI.Thirty-seven children completed the study (16 treatment, 21 control). Gastric residual volume between groups was not significantly different. The acetaminophen group had significantly higher pH than control group (1.86 ± 0.42 vs 1.56 ± 0.34; P ≤ .044). Three children in the control and 6 in the treatment group experienced minor adverse events.Findings suggest administering oral acetaminophen prior to induction of anesthesia

Paracetamol (acetaminophen) for chronic non-cancer pain in children and adolescents. Pain is a common feature of childhood and adolescence around the world, and for many young people, that pain is chronic. The World Health Organization guidelines for pharmacological treatments for children's persisting pain acknowledge that pain in children is a major public health concern of high significance in most parts of the world. While in the past, pain was largely dismissed and was frequently left (...) in the world today, chronic disease (and its associated pain) is a major health concern. Chronic pain (lasting three months or longer) can arise in the paediatric population in a variety of pathophysiological classifications: nociceptive, neuropathic, idiopathic, visceral, nerve damage pain, chronic musculoskeletal pain, and chronic abdominal pain, and other unknown reasons.Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is one of the most widely used analgesics in both adults and children.

34. Oral paracetamol (acetaminophen) for cancer pain. (PubMed)

Oral paracetamol (acetaminophen) for cancer pain. Pain is a common symptom with cancer, and 30% to 50% of all people with cancer will experience moderate to severe pain that can have a major negative impact on their quality of life. Non-opioid drugs are commonly used to treat mild to moderate cancer pain, and are recommended for this purpose in the WHO cancer pain treatment ladder, either alone or in combination with opioids.A previous Cochrane review that examined the evidence for nonsteroidal (...) anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or paracetamol, alone or combined with opioids, for cancer pain was withdrawn in 2015 because it was out of date; the date of the last search was 2005. This review, and another on NSAIDs, updates the evidence.To assess the efficacy of oral paracetamol (acetaminophen) for cancer pain in adults and children, and the adverse events reported during its use in clinical trials.We searched the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE, and Embase

Intravenous Acetaminophen in Multimodal Pain Management for Patients Undergoing Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Trial Although multimodal pain management including periarticular multidrug injection can provide excellent pain relief in the early postoperative period after total knee arthroplasty (TKA), rebounding pain remains an important challenge. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial was performed to investigate the efficacy of adding (...) intravenous acetaminophen to multimodal pain management for TKA.We enrolled 67 patients scheduled for unilateral TKA. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either 1000 mg of intravenous acetaminophen at 6-hour intervals or normal saline at the same intervals. All patients were treated with intraoperative periarticular multidrug injection and intravenous and oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Clinical Bottom Line For patients with post-operative endodontic pain, post-operative combination therapy of ibuprofen and acetaminophen provides more pain relief than acetaminophen alone or placebo.
