Is anyone aware of any research that supports meperidine over morphine for pain control in these patients? I understand that the theory is that meperidine causes less spasm of the sphincter of Oddi when compared to morphine. However, I have yet to locate anything but review articles that make published reference to this. Anyone aware of any clinical evidence of it rather than just anecdotal stuff? Review articles citing other review articles isn't my idea of evidence-based medicine.Originally posted by QuinnNSU
Except pain control, and hopefully you're giving demerol.
