Pain has been described as one of the leading causes of morbidity worldwide and is one of the most significant contributors to absence from work and thereby a decrease in productivity. Acute pain is frequently neglected and undertreated both in the emergency department (ED) and in the postoperative period. The management of acute pain is very often inconsistent and inadequate relative to the degree of pain perceived by the patient. This also results in reduced patient satisfaction, readmissions, and delayed recovery in postoperative patients. Suboptimal analgesia is frequently a result of certain barriers, at the physician level as well as patient level. In the setting of an ED, the key to solving the problem of oligoanalgesia starts with the acknowledgment and assessment of pain, involving the treating physicians, nurses, and the other emergency medical service providers.
