This chapter on acute pain medicine examines the themes represented on the American Board of Anesthesiology’s pain medicine certification exam. It covers Part 6 (tissue pain), Section 1 (acute pain). In detail, the epidemiology of acute pain, current inadequacy of acute pain therapies, the physiology of acute pain, and both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic aspects of acute pain treatment are discussed. Tools for assessing acute pain are reviewed, as well as the roles of both patient and family as they relate to adults and children in acute pain.
