What is Pain?
Pain has been called the “fourth vital sign” after body temperature, heart rate, and respiratory rate, and its potential presence should be evaluated in patients just as other vital signs. Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage. Pain motivates us to withdraw from potentially damaging situations, protect a damaged body part while it heals, and avoid those situations in the future. It is initiated by stimulation of nociceptors in the peripheral nervous system, or by damage to or malfunction of the peripheral or central nervous systems. Most pain resolves promptly once the painful stimulus is removed and the body has healed, but sometimes pain persists despite removal of the stimulus and apparent healing of the body; and sometimes pain arises in the absence of any detectable stimulus, damage, or pathology. For the purpose of this session we will describe pain as acute, chronic, or neuropathic (maladaptive).
