Abstract

Pain levels are a source of stress for patients in critical care settings. Patients frequently undergo procedures such as repositioning and suctioning and these are known to cause considerable pain. Recommendations and guideline have been developed for patients in critical care areas, however, pain continues to be a problem. The purpose of Gelina's study 1 “was to describe the experiences of pain in postoperative cardiac surgery patients during their stay in the intensive care unit (ICU).” (p. 299)
