Updates on Post Cesarean Analgesia

Caesarean section is associated with moderate to severe postoperative pain.

Good pain control may potentially influence recovery, psychological maternal well-being, breast feeding and mother-child bonding. Furthermore, inadequate postoperative pain relief may lead to hyperalgesia and persistent postoperative pain.

The anaesthethetic goal is to provide a pleasant and pain free child birth experience.

This talk will review the PROSPECT guideline for elective caesarean section: updated systematic review and procedure-specific postoperative pain management recommendations.
