Acute pain after surgery is a common problem with multiple consequences. Patients, anesthesia professionals, and surgeons want adequate pain control with minimal side effects. Opioid analgesics are commonly relied upon in the perioperative and postoperative periods to provide analgesia. Large doses of opioids are associated with sedation, respiratory depression, pruritus, nausea, vomiting, and potentially opioid induced hyperalgesia (OIH).1 The use of multimodal analgesia targeted at different pain mechanisms both peripherally and centrally has been reported to decrease pain and reduce opioid consumption.
