WE TAKE PAIN PERSONALLY REASON #1 THE NEED FOR NON!NARCOTIC PAIN MANAGEMENT THERAPY HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER. Hospitals are looking to reduce adverse events and opioid consumption. 1-3 Patients receiving an opioid prescription within 7 days of surgery were 44% more likely to become long-term opioid users within 1 year when compared with those who received no such prescription. 4 ON-Q* is proven to reduce the amount of narcotics patients receive after surgery. 5 For more than 16 years, we have been focused on improving patient outcomes. By continuously working together with clinicians to improve catheter place- ments and block techniques, the ON-Q* Pain Relief System has been able to reduce the amount of narcot- ics needed to e!ectively manage post surgical pain— for each patient and procedure.
