Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture
Pain Management Interventions Examined in this CER (1)
Eight categories of interventions were identified in the literature search pertaining to pain management for the population of elderly patients with hip fracture.
- Systemic Analgesia (both narcotic and non-narcotic medications).
- Nerve blocks (regional blocks), in which anesthetics are injected into nerve bundles to prevent generation and conduction of nerve impulses to the spinal cord and brain.
- Traction (most often skin-anchored traction but also includes bone-anchored [skeletal] traction) performed to stabilize the fractured leg and relieve pressure at the fracture point, as well as to assist in fracture reduction.
