Cuidados paliativos, Vias de administração de medicamentos

Resumo

Os cuidados paliativos têm como intuito a melhoria da qualidade de vida dos doentes que se defrontam com doenças graves e/ou avançadas, incuráveis ou progressivas. A gestão sintomática (farmacológica e não farmacológica) é uma das suas áreas de atuação já que o seu descontrolo influencia negativamente a qualidade de vida do doente e da sua família.
A via oral é a via terapêutica preferencial em cuidados paliativos, contudo, existem situações em que a sua utilização não é possível. Assim torna-se importante ter vias terapêuticas alternativas para cumprir o objetivo de manter o doente confortável no seu domicílio. O objetivo deste trabalho é apresentar as vantagens e desvantagens das vias alternativas mais utilizadas e as opções terapêuticas possíveis dentro de cada uma delas para os diferentes sintomas.
