I-Flow Launches Patient Education Program to Build Awareness of Non-Narcotic Therapy for Post-Surgical Pain Management
Date:9/16/2013

LAKE FOREST, Calif., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- I-Flow, LLC, a Kimberly-Clark Health Care Company and manufacturer of the ON-Q Pain Relief System (ON-Q), today announced the launch of the "Rethinking Narcotics After Surgery: Post-Op Pain Management with ON-Q" Program to educate patients about alternatives to narcotics for post-operative surgical pain relief. The Program, launched during National Pain Awareness Month, includes a patient website, blog and social media communities to inform patients and their families about post-operative pain management and help aid the surgery planning and recovery process.

Each year, more than 50 million surgical procedures are performed in the U.S. Approximately 70 percent of patients may experience pain after surgery. Until recently, alternatives for treating post-surgical pain were limited to narcotics, which pose the risk of addiction and may also cause undesirable side effects such as post-operative nausea and vomiting, sedation and immunosuppression. The Rethinking Narcotics After Surgery Program is aimed at educating patients on alternatives available that can help reduce narcotic usage for post-surgical pain control and improve patient outcomes.

"Ineffective post-operative pain management can impair healing and may result in complications, longer hospital stays or readmissions. Many patients are often unaware of the alternatives to narcotics for post-operative pain relief," said Roger V. Ostrander, M.D., Orthopaedic Surgeon, The Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. "Making patient-friendly educational resources available will help drive awareness for non-narcotic pain relief options and equip patients with the tools and information they need to take an active role in their pain management."

The I-Flow Rethinking Narcotics After Surgery Program includes:
