Patient Controlled Analgesia

PCA is an interactive method of pain management that permits patients to manage their pain by self-administering doses of analgesics, usually opioids.
All PCA machines allow for the setting of the following parameters: demand (bolus) dose, lockout interval, hourly limit, continuous (basal) infusion, and rescue (loading) dose.
Unfortunately, PCA errors represent a four-fold higher risk than other reported medication errors.

Dreamed by Sophie Schmitt, and sponsored by "SUDIOSANTE®", here is the application for iPhone that ensures perfect control setup of a PCA machine.
