Today, I went in to work early because they wanted me to work with the compounding tech, so that I could learn how to make some of the specialized products we produce for our chronic pain patients. It's hard work that requires using the scale to weigh the powder products, and a specialized machine for mixing the powder into the gel base, and finally unit-dosing the completed gel into the plasic bubbles, so the health care provider simply peels the backing off the bubble and instantly there's a single dose of gel to be used.
There are several types of gels that we use, one being Ketamine for pain, others having Lorazepam and other things in them for reducing anxiety. These products will help the hospice or long term care patient who can't swallow pills, or tolerate some of the side effects of ingested medications. The medication is simply applied to the skin and absorbs that way.
I thought it a bit ironic that I, a chronic pain patient myself, am making these products to help reduce pain in others. But the entire time I was preparing these products, I was thinking about those anonymos people that I was helping with this time-consuming project. I loved every minute of it!
