MetadataShow full item record
Pain is the commonest reason that patients present to an Emergency Department (ED), but is often not treated effectively. Patient controlled analgesia (PCA) is used in other hospital settings but there is little evidence to support its use in emergency patients. This study (one of two parallel trials) aimed to assess the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of PCA in emergency patients with traumatic injuries.
