Slide: 18 of 46

Other Clinically Significant Outcomes and Adverse Events

In addition to relief from pain, outcomes including the 30-day mortality rate, mental status (delirium), and quality of life were identified a priori as clinically significant, and the strength of evidence about these outcomes was evaluated. 

Serious adverse events of clinical significance were identified a priori and included stroke, myocardial infarction, and renal failure; the strength of evidence about effects of interventions on the incidence of these events was evaluated.
