Providing an overview of pain, including the consequences of poorly managed analgesia, this presentation will discuss how opioids work and the differences between a full mu agonist (e.g. methadone) and a partial mu agonist (e.g. buprenorphine).
With many practices moving towards the use of methadone for ‘routine’ procedures such as ovariohysterectomy, this presentation will also cover the wider use of Comfortan (methadone) and other opioids in practice.
