Pain Relieved by Intervention
Recurring pain often causes frustration. Therefore, a group of anesthetic experts developed a new method to relieve the pain, it is called interventional pain management, IPM. One of the doctors in the team is the professor on Anesthetics, Nancy M. Rehatta who is also the Head of Anesthesiology and Intensive Therapy Collegium. All this time, the pain was relieved with drugs. But on difficult cases, morphin injection is not effective and the patient, usually, does not want to have the operation when long consumption of drugs can be fatal. Intervention technique is used to avoid the risk by managing the nerves which transmit impulses of pain to the brain through an ultrasound device or radio frequency device.
