Over the last few days, she has become more restless, has increased grimacing, and periodically clenches her fists. The nurse notes an increase in pulse, respiration, and blood pressure during these episodes. The healthcare provider is contacted, and oxycodone HCL immediate-release concentrate solution (OxyFAST) is prescribed to be administered via the oral transmucosal route every 4 hours as needed for pain. Frank asks the nurse why oxycodone is given in this manner.
