Preventive measures for Pain

Preventive measures for Pain mainly includes the following procedures  Most entry-site infections can be managed by oral antibiotics, dressing changes, and local incision and drainage. Superficial infections associated with percutaneous catheters often can be managed without having to remove the device. Deep infections, however, can extend to the intrathecal space and generally require removing the indwelling catheter or subcutaneous injection port, followed by appropriate wound management and antibiotic therapy. The National Surgical Infection Prevention Project has guidelines for preoperative antibiotic prophylaxis for surgical patients. Because of the possibility of catastrophic infection, routine antimicrobial prophylaxis is recommended for all patients receiving a spinal cord stimulator or implanted intrathecal drug-delivery system. Cefazolin, clindamycin, and vancomycin are the drugs of choice. A bacterial infection typically caused by S. aureus, epidural abscess is a severe infection of the epidural space that usually requires emergency neurosurgical intervention. Epidural abscess is treated with laminectomy, abscess drainage, and antibiotics, and most patients recover completely. Early diagnosis can help reduce or avoid permanent neurologic deficits.
