Applications of mathematical modelling in demand analgesia

Abstract:

This thesis describes applications of mathematical modelling to systems of demand analgesia for the relief of acute postoperative pain. It builds upon work described in the D.Phil. thesis of M.P. Reasbeck.

Following major surgery, patients are given a hand-held button which they press when in need of pain relief. The relief is afforded by automatic intravenous infusion of opiates. New clinical demand analgesia hardware, PRODAC, has been developed and data have been collected with it...
