Postoperative Pain Understanding 

Postoperative Pain is an anticipated and temporary increase in background pain that occurs following surgical procedures. It is a type of pain that typically lasts less than a few days to months or pain directly related to soft tissue damage such as a sprained ankle or a paper cut. The pain is of short duration, but it gradually resolves as the injured tissues heal. 

 

The intensity, quality, and duration of postoperative pain are affected mainly by location, type, and duration of the surgical procedure; type and extent of the incision and surgical trauma; the physical and mental state of the patient, including the patient’s approach to pain; preoperative psychological and pharmacological preparation; type of anesthesia; pain management before and after the surgical procedure; incidence of surgical complications; and quality of postoperative care.

 

For efficient treatment, it needs to be properly diagnosed, measured, and documented. Only by this procedure, optimal analgesia may be achieved, a mild and tolerable sensation of pressure in the surgical wound with minimal adverse effects. Proper diagnosis of the type and intensity of pain is crucial for an adequate and targeted treatment of acute pain. It requires a highly professional approach in terms of expertise, psychology, and ethics.  

 

Specific evaluation of pain includes the location of the pain and its radiation, quality of the pain (dull, sharp, throbbing, shooting, burning, etc.), duration of the pain (constant, intermittent, paroxysmal), causative factors (movement, sitting position, cough, etc., the intensity of the pain at rest or during movement), accompanying symptoms, quality of sleep, assessment of the patient’s expectations, personal approach to pain, stress, and pain coping strategies, analgesic therapy preferences.

Postoperative Pain Epidemiology 

The Postoperative Pain epidemiology segmentation provides insights about the historical and current patient pool along with the forecasted trend for seven major countries. It helps recognize the causes of current and forecasted trends by exploring numerous studies and views of key opinion leaders. This part of the DelveInsight report also provides the diagnosed patient pool and their trends along with assumptions undertaken.
