Patient-controlled analgesia pumps, also referred to as PCA is one of the methods that is used to control the amount of analgesia (pain medicine) that patients receive. There are various number of patient -controlled analgesia systems. In patient-controlled analgesia, the patient can control their pain. This done with the help of patient-controlled analgesia pump. A PCA pump is a computerized pump that contains a pain medication syringe (as per prescription of the physician) that is directly connected to the IV (intravenous) line in the patient’s body.
The PCA pump, in certain cases, delivers a constant and small pain medication flow. The patient can administer additional doses as per requirement. Patients that have undergone a surgery are typically equipped with patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pumps. PCA pumps have safety features that are in-built in the device. A safe limit is set within which a patient can administer the pain reliever (analgesic) amount by himself/herself.
