Acute Pain Medicine
Acute pain medicine is a dynamic and evolving field that addresses the management and relief of short-term, intense pain. It plays a crucial role in improving the quality of life for patients recovering from surgery, trauma, or acute medical conditions. Researchers are investigating the molecular and cellular pathways that underlie acute and neuropathic pain. This session examines the latest developments in medication-based pain management, covering traditional opioids, non-opioid alternatives, and various adjuvant medications.
