Prehospital Pain Management: Overview and Potential Improvements Pain is a frequent issue in the prehospital setting. Rapid and adequate analgesia has a positive effect on the physiological and psychological condition of patients. However, up to 43 % of patients still suffer insufficient analgesia. Several studies have identified some factors that contribute to this problem; these factors can be patient- and intervention-specific or dependent on the staff on duty. In order to improve prehospital analgesia in the future, structural and organizational changes as well as the implementation of new methods and therapies are essential.
