  • Chronic Pain
  • The review, part of the journal's special issue titled "Patient Outcomes in Rheumatology, 2011," includes the Visual Analog Scale for Pain (VAS Pain), NRS Pain, McGill Pain Questionnaire (MPQ), Short-Form McGill Pain Questionnaire (SF-MPQ), Chronic Pain Grade Scale (CPGS), SF-36 BPS, and Measure of Intermittent and Constant Osteoarthritis Pain (ICOAP). (apta.org)
  • Furthermore, our understanding of how and why individuals transition to a chronic pain state after an acute injury is limited. (nih.gov)
  • Backstory: I've been suffering with chronic pain for the past 5 months which is made worse when I exercise so I've had to severely scale back what I do, so I'm on the Perricone diet to compensate for my now sedentary lifestyle. (wordpress.com)
  • subjective
  • The current standard of care for measuring pain is the 0-to-10 pain scale, which is based on subjective, observational and self-reporting techniques. (childrensnational.org)
  • Moreover, Dr. Finkel points out that subjective pain scores cannot be standardized, heightening the potential for misdiagnosis, over-treatment or under-treatment. (childrensnational.org)
  • Because of the subjective nature of pain, self-report methods are considered the best measure of pain in children who are at least 5 or 6 yr old. (asahq.org)
  • If this view can be further substantiated and if it applies also to other subjective reaponses as well as to pain, and this appears to be the case, then acceptance of this concept will require a wide shift in therapeutic planning. (stonel.info)
  • Quantitative
  • The two components have not yet been satisfactorily separated experimentally (XII, B). Pain from the two origins differs greatly in the quantitative representation of the two components (XII, B). It is essential that these diffrences be taken into account when scientific study of pain or pain relief is undertaken. (stonel.info)
  • 11) Quantitative work with pain is possible and rewarding. (stonel.info)
  • sensation
  • 5) "Experimental" pain and "pathological" pain are both composed of "original sensation" and the psychic processing of the original sensation (XII, B). The results of this processing are synonymous with the psychic reaction component (XII). (stonel.info)
  • analgesic
  • 6) The experimental pain techniques at present generally employed in man, while useful for some purposes, are probably useless for the appraisal of the analgesic agents (XI, D, E, F). The same techniques in animals have definite usefulness with the powerful narcotics (XI, G), but none apparently with the acetylsalicylic acid class of compounds (XI, F). (stonel.info)
  • 7) Assay of analgesic power can be carried on with less than a 10% error when pathological pain is employed in man provided one works in the steep part of the dose response curve (V, B, 2, a, 3). (stonel.info)
  • 9) No dependable relationship has been established between the action of analgesic agents and the experimental pain threshold in man (XI). (stonel.info)
  • postoperative
  • 6 report about the development and validation of the Non-communicating Children's Pain Checklist-Postoperative Version (NCCPC-PV). (asahq.org)
  • This publication is of particular importance because anesthesiologists have had significant difficulties in assessing postoperative pain in children with major cognitive disabilities. (asahq.org)
  • sensory
  • 3-5 Different measures are required to assay the sensory, emotional, behavioral, spiritual-existential, and social dimensions of pain. (asahq.org)
  • Beyond consensus that pain is "an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience," its biology remains poorly understood, and options for its treatment remain frustratingly inadequate. (ama-assn.org)
  • The perception of pain includes a sensory component, involving neural pathway activation in response to noxious stimuli, and an affective response, which involves behavioral and cognitive aspects. (asahq.org)
  • The International Association for the Study of Pain states that, "Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage. (asahq.org)
  • perception
  • Pain perception is usually measured using pain scores, where participants are asked to rate their level of pain at certain timepoints, however this technique is not always accurate. (isrctn.com)
  • From these values, the pain degree was calculated from the following formula: (pain perception current value - lowest perceptible current value) ÷ lowest perceptible current value × 100. (biomedcentral.com)
  • device
  • They are then asked to express their pain throughout the procedure using the device so that their pain levels can be assessed continuously. (isrctn.com)
  • Children's National Medical Center is testing an experimental device that aims to measure pain according to how pupils react to certain stimuli. (childrensnational.org)
  • practice
  • Guidelines for the use of controlled substances for the treatment of pain now consider inappropriate treatment, including undertreatment of pain, a departure from an acceptable standard of practice. (ama-assn.org)
  • approaches
  • Contributors to the May issue explain why each of these statements about pain is true, and explore clinical approaches that lie between the underestimation and overtreatment of pain. (ama-assn.org)
  • physicians
  • If any hospital passes along financial risk for pain control to physicians, it is spending more money on the accounting than is at stake. (nejm.org)
  • Opioids
  • Sciatica pain is carried by touch fibers that do not have opioid receptors, which makes opioids an inappropriate choice for treating that type of pain. (childrensnational.org)
  • therefore
  • The larger issue is that no one likes being measured, and therefore any measurement can produce perverse effects. (nejm.org)
  • Being able to effectively measure pain levels during the different parts of a procedure could therefore help better deliver pain relief which could make procedures more successful. (isrctn.com)
  • Conclusions concerning pain threshold must therefore be tentative (X). (stonel.info)
  • Considerations
  • The Berlin Social Support Scales (BSSS, Schwarzer & Schulz, 2000) were developed based on theoretical considerations and reviews of established measurement instruments for social support. (midss.org)
  • neural
  • Although great strides have been made in some areas, such as the identification of neural pathways of pain, the experience of pain and the challenge of treatment have remained uniquely individual and unsolved. (nih.gov)
  • molecular
  • New advances are needed in every area of pain research, from the micro perspective of molecular sciences to the macro perspective of behavioral and social sciences. (nih.gov)
  • evaluate
  • Young children and children with cognitive disabilities are especially difficult to evaluate for pain because of their limited understanding and communication skills. (asahq.org)
  • anxiety
  • How children cope with pain has a lot to do with our role as parents and there is a huge contribution we can make to helping alleviate not just the physical experience but the anxiety and stress that can certainly increase pain for children. (abc.net.au)
  • decrease
  • Subjects in the mirror therapy group had a significant decrease in pain scores, from a mean of 44.1 (SD = 17.0) to 27.5 (SD = 17.2) mm ( p = 0.002). (frontiersin.org)
  • In addition, there was a significant decrease in daily time experiencing pain, from a mean of 1,022 (SD = 673) to 448 (SD = 565) minutes ( p = 0.003). (frontiersin.org)
  • detection
  • Particularly, detection of CIPN by Pain Vision ® was possible, though most of the CIPN that occurred was low grade or mild symptom. (biomedcentral.com)
  • experience of pain
  • In this podcast we talk to Dianne about the experience of pain for very young children and how parents play a vital role in managing the experience for their children. (abc.net.au)
  • This is a podcast you need to listen to because as a parent you will at some point need to help your child deal with the experience of pain even if we hope it's never more serious than an immunisation injection. (abc.net.au)
  • children
  • from the ordinary tumbles and scrapes of childhood, scheduled immunisations, trips to the dentist, to the more terrifying accidents and emergencies one way or another our children will need to learn to deal with pain. (abc.net.au)
  • Pain experience in children is further complicated by the dynamic evolution of conscious awareness and psychologic and physiologic development. (asahq.org)
  • health
  • It is about measurement itself - and the question of whether the very act of measuring anything in health care can produce potentially perverse consequences. (nejm.org)
  • There are unintended consequences with everything one does in life - including measuring pain and other issues important in health care. (nejm.org)
  • The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to inform the scientific community of the pain research interests of the various Institutes and Centers (ICs) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and to stimulate and foster a wide range of basic, clinical, and translational studies on pain as they relate to the missions of these ICs. (nih.gov)
  • procedure
  • Then, women are asked to express their pain by controlling the CPSM during the entire procedure. (isrctn.com)
  • Neither
  • By contrast, the control group had neither diminished pain ( p = 0.65) nor decreased overall time experiencing pain ( p = 0.49). (frontiersin.org)
  • control
  • That assumption is wrong, but not important for this piece, since I am in favor of HCAHPS measuring pain control. (nejm.org)
  • Why do I dismiss the importance of financial incentives for pain control? (nejm.org)
  • Quite simply, financial incentives for pain control don't really exist for doctors, who are the ones who prescribe medications. (nejm.org)
  • Nor do I know of any commercial insurers or provider organizations that tie physician compensation to pain control. (nejm.org)
  • Hospitals do have a small amount of money tied directly to pain control for inpatients - but it is so small that it barely qualifies for the term "rounding error. (nejm.org)
  • Pain control thereby "drives" 0.055% of hospital payments. (nejm.org)
