Pain (& analgesia)

This is the book Jon quotes, “Pain is a symphony…”

The International Association for the Study of Pain’s revised definition of pain is available here.

If you’d like to read more about ‘nocebo’ i.e. the non-pharmacological adverse effects of an intervention, have a look at this article.


For more information on Penthrox, you can read about it in the BNF, The Emergency Medicines Compendium and on the manufacturers own website.

Jon is the author of the Pain and analgesia chapter in the 2nd edition of the ABC of Prehospital Medicine, to be published soon!
