Abstract

The following study focus on pain management during post-operative surgery treatment, it describes a solution for measuring the pain level for pediatric surgery patients at home since hospital care is trending towards ambulatory care. This solution can decrease the time in pain and optimize dosing of drug intake, and thus, improve the effectiveness of the treatment, reduce the time of post-surgery recovery and reduce the risk of chronic pain development. This can, in a global way, increase the overall quality of life of both patients and their family members. From the parent’s point of view, better acceptance of ambulatory surgery can be expected together with reduced stress caused by a fear of pain management at home. From the hospital’s point of view, we expect an increase in the rate of ambulatory surgery, and thus, an increase of beds availability.
