Pain Management and Patients' Recovery
Pain can seriously impact a patient's everyday activities, including quality of life and the
ability to perform. After an operation, a patient needs to engage in daily activities, retain a good
state of mind, and rest afterwards. Doctors and nurses must ensure that patients receive adequate
pain management during their stay in the hospital as pain is influenced by various elements,
including sociocultural features, cognitive issues, and physiological factors involved with pain
management (Albrecht & Chin, 2020). This essay will focus on the relationship between good
pain management and a patient's healing process.
Since severe pain inhibits the immune system, poor pain regulation may have negative
psychological consequences. Improper pain management causes the body's response to stress to
be delayed, which has a negative impact on the patient's capacity to recover. Acute pain has a
detrimental effect on the wound healing process, the renal system, and the cardiovascular system,
leading to heart ischemia in the long run. Even after surgery, a patient's immune system is
unaffected by the specific procedure (Astanehe et al., 2020). Aside from the fact that good pain
management is compassionate, it also lowers the likelihood of death and morbidity in the acute
care situation. The development of these problems occurs commonly due to poor pain treatment.
In Conclusion, the benefits of having proper pain management include better comfort for
the patient, more satisfied patients, fewer problems for the heart and lungs, more rapid recovery,
and a lower chance of getting deep vein thrombosis. An acute care system's patients have an
improved chance of making a full recovery because of the role played by all the contributing
factors described above (Schug et al. 2020). The vital role of proper pain management is evident
to the extent that it minimizes the negative influence on patients, which in turn helps prevent
other problems, such as heart problems.
