How can you expect PACU nurses to remain optimistic about not having to deal with postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) patients?

TINTON FALLS, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / March 20, 2019 / Pressure Point Inc. said there is a simple solution for Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) nursing teams knowing when high-risk PONV surgery patients have been provided adequate levels of optimal PONV management. It's when they see the surgery patients wearing the clinically proven Pressure Right transparent medical adhesive bracelet styled stimulation strips that PACU nurses can confidently assume the likelihood of PONV to be an almost non-existent event for their patients.

The supplemental effects of the bilateral skin application of the company's clinically proven medical adhesive bracelet strips applied on patients prior to their induction of anesthesia has proven to enhance the best option for patient nausea management following surgery.

As a result, the nurses can spend much less time with patients over PONV concerns making the PACU process more efficient and cost-effective. These patients will be inclined to experience a sense of physical and mental well-being by not experiencing PONV episodes while in PACU and after being discharged for recovery at home.

Pressure Point said that during the 1970s, Western neurological research recognized that the triggering of endorphins in the brain can be used to change the perception and response based on nerve impulses in the brain. The "gate control theory of pain" established that perception and response to pain mechanisms could be altered resulting from the releasing of endorphins and neuromodulators in the brain by evoking nerve acupuncture impulses from the skin. It was further implied that we are born with a genetically determined neural network of acupuncture signals in the central nervous system that can alter perception in the body of neurological effects.

The action mechanism of the Pressure Right 7-day wearable disposable adhesive bracelet strips mitigate nausea responses from occurring associated with anesthesia and surgery. By virtue of its pressure-based acupressure positioning on the patient's skin it evokes similar nerve impulses in the central nervous system, which leads to the triggering of endogenous endorphins released in the brain. This action is known to block ascending nausea and vomiting signals to the brain, thus altering the perception and response transmission to the brain not to react to PONV impulses.

The implementation of the Pressure Right 7-day disposable medical adhesive bracelet strips can be described as a non-drug transport method of optimal nausea management, which can support existing PONV drug therapy combinations. In fact, it can even eliminate some of the less effective drugs as well as reduce multiple prescribed dosages during and after surgery.

It can be observed that the phenomenon of PONV has been institutionalized over the years as an accepted practice because of the use of pharmaceutical drugs. The pharmaceutical approach has not matched the progress made in identifying PONV candidates based on patient risk analysis. There currently remains a significant gap between patient PONV identification and patient-free outcomes averaging at least 30% annually of the general surgical population that are still impacted by the effects of PONV.

The PONV process has been in desperate need of being restructured and better regulated in order to arrive at an optimal solution to this distressing complication after anesthesia and surgery. One way to ease the pain of surgery patients is to accept non-pharmacological methods such as Pressure Right that can deliver the added optimal qualities of PONV prevention that are needed to solve this ongoing crisis.

Pressure Right value-added benefits can transform operating room outcomes with a lot more satisfying patients resulting from taking away most nausea management issues.
