Don't Use Ionsys for More than 72 Hours
You'll hear about Ionsys (eye-AHN-sis), the first NEEDLE-FREE, patient-controlled fentanyl transdermal system for postoperative pain.
It's placed on an adult's upper arm or chest. Patients push a button to deliver a fentanyl dose.
It's as effective as morphine patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pumps in opioid-naive patients...and might SEEM like a simpler option.
