The Cannabinoids as Therapeutic Agents in the Management of Pain

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.192
Pages: 
576-80
Synopsis: 
This paper explored the suitability of naturally occurring and synthetic cannabinoids for pain management. The antinociceptive mechanisms identified for cannabinoids, relative to currently available analgesics, are promising in several cases, more so for chronic than for acute pain, where the potential remains hopeful but as yet unrealized.

ABSTRACT

Objective: This review focussed on the role of the endocannabinoid system in relation to pain transmission and modulation. Various facets of both naturally occurring and synthetic cannabinoids (CBs) were explored in an effort to ascertain their suitability in the treatment and management of pain.

The Effect of Three Different Applications on Rocuronium Injection Pain: A Double Blinded, Randomized Clinical Study

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.004
Synopsis: 
Rocuronium induces severe and noxious pain when administered intravenously during anaesthesia induction. We suggested that remifentanyl can be used as intravenous bolus to prevent rocuronium induced pain as effective as remifentanyl and lidocaine administration with venous occlusion.

ABSTRACT

Background: Some agents such as rocuronium and propofol induce severe and noxious pain when administered intravenously during anesthesia induction. This causes to additional stress for the patient who is already stressful due to operation. The purpose of our study was to compare the effects of remifentanyl with two different administration methods and lidocaine on rocuronium injection pain.
