Since sleep deprivation can negatively affect recovery after shoulder surgery. This can be due to pain, sling immobilization, and other factors. As a result, the University of San Francisco, California is hosting a clinical trial to examine the potential benefits of a sleep hygiene intervention and the sleep medication zolpidem on improving sleep, pain control, and recovery after shoulder arthroplasties.
This is an interventional study with a control arm and an experimental arm. Patients will be randomly assigned to each of the two groups. Current practice of postoperative care will serve as the control arm group and sleep medicine (zolpidem) as the interventional arm group. The outcomes will be measured using Lead’s Sleep scale, sleep journals, and pain scores.
- All sexes, ages 18 and older
- All consenting adults undergoing elective total shoulder replacement
- Allergies to zolpidem
- Refusal to participate in study
