This session will describe how pain in the intensive care unit (ICU) is multi-factorial and difficult to assess. It will show how potentially useful drugs may also have adverse effects and how non-pharmacological treatment effects must be maximized.

The session will also review effects of pain and describe how analgesia use must be balanced.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Identify the multi-factorial features that cause pain and make pain difficult to assess in patients requiring ICU care
• Recognize and use the non-pharmacological treatments of pain that are appropriate in the ICU setting
• Explain how the pharmacokinetics of analgesic agents may be altered in ICU patients
• Explain how analgesic drugs may interact with other agents in the ICU List the positive and negative features of analgesia provision in the ICU
