Treatment guidelines

Medication

Key points

  • To provide patient comfort and reduce pain and swelling after a surgical intervention, analgetic medication is usually administered as a routine
  • In case of more extensive interventions and some predisposing health conditions (e.g. diabetes) consider preventive antibiosis
  • Consider possible interferences of some current analgetics and antibiotics with general medication (coagulation prevention, oral contraceptives)
  • Consider possible side effects of medication (for example Reye syndrom associated with Acetylsalicylic acid in children, allergies)
