PUAEME008 Provide Pain Management
PUAEME008 Provide Pain Management Supersedes and is equivalent to PUAEME005A – Provide pain management.
Penthrox Methoxyflurane or often referred to as the green whistle, is an analgesic or pain-relieving device used by medical practitioners, the defence forces, ambulance paramedics, sports clubs and surf lifesavers, first responders and medics to administer emergency pain relief. It is popular in remote first aid locations like mine sites and the mining sector as a simple, non-addictive and easy to administer pain management option. Making it an excellent choice for situations where a fast-acting and uncomplicated method of pain relief is required.
PUAEME008 Provide Pain Management course will allow you to develop skills and knowledge and most importantly, confidence, to administer restricted analgesic to provide pain management as part of a medically supervised first responder organisation. It includes identifying the need for analgesia, accessing, preparing and administering restricted pain relief such as analgesics and aspirin according to medically endorsed protocols, performing casualty handovers and completing analgesic use requirements.
PUAEME008 Provide Pain Management requires instruction and practical training. This is especially true where it relates to storing, accessing, preparing and administering restricted analgesic drugs. As with any training, it is more useful if training occurs before being confronted with an actual real-life situation.
Licensing requirements for the storage and administration of drugs may apply depending on organisation, type of drug, state/territory, etc.
