Pain severity can differ from patient to patient, so an individualized approach to care can be taken. Predicting in-hospital opioid consumption following a repeat CD has not been previously studied. The primary aim is to identify if prior opioid consumption 48 hours postoperatively following CD correlates with patient opioid consumption following index CD. The primary aim of the investigations was that an associated prediction would exist. Secondary aims included whether pain scores correlated and if obstetric and demographic variable improved prediction accuracy. Copyright © 2022 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
