What does multimodal analgesia mean? What are its benefits?
Multimodal techniques for pain management include the administration of two or more drugs that act by different mechanisms for providing analgesia, and regional analgesia techniques. The drugs may be administered via the same route or by different routes, and the choice of medication, dose, route, and duration of therapy should be individualized. Dosing regimens should be administered to optimize efficacy while minimizing the risk of adverse events.
