Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture
Summary of Benefits (2)
Low-strength evidence indicates that single-dose and continuous modes of administering spinal anesthesia do not differ in effect on mortality rates or delirium, but the evidence is insufficient to understand effectiveness and benefits of differing does, modes of administration, and the addition of opioids to the anesthetic injection.
Skin traction does not reduce the intensity of acute pain.
