|Official Title:||An Analgesia Protocol for Acute Renal Colic in the DHMC Emergency Department|
- Time to significant pain relief [ Time Frame: Within emergency department ]
|Study Start Date:||February 2007|
|Study Completion Date:||October 2007|
A retrospective study was performed that assessed the time to significant analgesia and medications used to achieve analgesia in the DHMC ED. Based upon this a prospective pain management protocol was designed and we will track the difference in time to significant pain relief between the two groups.
