Pain is a subjective and very complex experience with no objective measurement parameters. The reduction and elimination of pain is important to healthcare professionals and patients alike. Alleviation of pain helps to facilitate painful medical procedures without undue anxiety for the patient that could lead to further injury or exacerbation of their condition. Reducing pain for patients improves the quality of care and can lead to more efficient use of healthcare resources.
