Treatment of Pain on the Field

Pain Treatment


The treatment of pain is an unequivocal duty of the medical profession to relieve human suffering. Analgesic therapy is always important in the management of patients who have sustained injuries, because intense pain can cause clinical deterioration. Drugs given to relieve pain may occasionally provoke dangerous drops in blood pressure and other side effects, therefore all drugs should be titrated against effect. This means that the doctor must be familiar with the actions, desired and undesired effects and potential complications of the drugs he employs and must understand the management of these complications, so that any necessary measures can be started immediately. Proper management of pain in the acutely injured patient hence calls for knowledge of the pathophysiology of shock, acquaintance with pharmacology and an understanding of the principles of intensive care.
