Q. regarding post operative analgesia, WOF is true
a. morphine is safer than pethidine
b. should be given strictly according to mg/kg body weight
c. elderly patients often need lower doses to achieve comfort
d. IM pethidine should not be repeated before 4 hrs
e. IM pethidine is safer than subcut route
:oops: Yes i saw that too..it might be C
I think morphine is not safer than pethidine and we can repeat analgesia again and again and some pts require higher dosage, so probably b is not correct. Both pethidine choices are not looking convincing.
I think C can be a good choice. In elderly a lot of dg doses have to be readjusted (I remember that from goljan lectures).
I agree with C.
the dose may need to be adjusted in elderly patients
