Mise en place du méthoxyflurane inhalé (Penthrox©) au sein du service d’accueil des urgences du Centre Hospitalier de Versailles : étude avant/après

Abstract : Introduction: pain management in the emergency department is rarely optimal despite clear protocols. Trauma pain is very common. It seems important to favor quick acting and easy-to-use analgesics. Can methoxyflurane have an interest in the management of trauma-related pain in the emergency department ? Materials and methods : before-after study of use of Penthrox at the emergency department of the Versailles Hospital Center. Analysis of the variation in pain intensity during the stay, tolerance, and use of usual treatments. Results : the variation in pain intensity at 15 and 30 minutes is statistically significant with a reduction of more than 2 points on a Numeric Scale. Satisfaction and tolerance are good. Conclusion : the methoxyflurane seems to be a good alternative in the management of trauma-related pain in the emergency department. However, studies comparing methoxyflurane with specific analgesics (with strict protocol) are necessary to clarify its place in the therapeutic strategy.
