Dolor y sufrimiento

St.Emlyn’s February 13, 2014 by Richard Body
"Treating pain in the Emergency Department is a skill, and a really important one. Although we’d like to think otherwise, saving lives actually accounts for only a very small part of what we do as emergency physicians. The other, much larger, part of our role is to make our patients’ lives better. There are many ways that we aim to do that. One of the simplest and most immediately rewarding ways is the treatment of acute pain.
Most of our patients are actually in pain. More than 1 in 3 of our patients has ‘severe’ pain (rated >7/10). And anyone who’s ever been in pain knows how terrible that can be. So we need to do something to make it better."
