The patient´s experience of pain treatment after operation of a distal radius fracture in peripheral nerve blockade (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att utvärdera patientens upplevelse av den postoperativa smärtan och behandlingen av denna när den perifera nervblockadens effekt avtagit efter operation av distal radiusfraktur. Metoden som använts är en empirisk kvantitativ deskriptiv enkätstudie. Tjugo patienter deltog i denna pilotstudie. Demografin stämde väl överens med de statistiska data, som visar att distrala radiusfrakturer är vanligt förekommande hos kvinnor i åldern 55 år och äldre. Resultatet av studien har påvisat att många patienter har upplevt mer smärta än vad de själva varit beredda på. Slutsatsen utifrån visuell analog skala, VAS, visar att smärtan har varit svår för patienterna att behandla hemma trots att de haft tillgång till smärtbehandlade läkemedel. Informationen som patienten erhållit har varit otillräcklig och kan vara en källa till den svårbemästrade smärtan.

Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to evaluate patient´s experience of the postoperative pain and its treatment after peripheral nerve blockade for operation of a distal radius fracture had ceased. The method used was an empiric, quantitative, descriptive study using enquiries. Twenty patients participated in this pilot study. Demography was according to statistical data, that distal radius fractures are common in women aged 55 or more. The results showed that many patients experienced more severe pain than expected. The conclusion from visual analogue scale, VAS, shows that the pain was difficult to treat at home in spite of prescription of pain killers. The information given to the patient was insufficient, which may have contributed to the difficulty to control pain.
