Hva er smerte?

Etter å ha deltatt på NOI2010 – konferansen i helgen og blitt sittende stuck i England har man hatt litt tid til å evaluere hva man lærte der. En flott gjennomført kongress som gav masse inspirasjon for bedre klinisk kvalitet.

Jeg burde ha forsøkt meg på en norsk oversettelse, men denne på engelsk er vel så bra det kan bli så I will leave it like it is:

Biological organisms are proficient at protecting themselves from threat. Seminal work more than a century ago clearly demonstrated that even unicellular organisms can propel themselves away from physical threat[1]. The sophistication with which organisms can protect themselves from threat increases in line with the sophistication of the organism. Mammals are a fine case in point, with a protective armory that includes monosynaptic motor responses, co-ordinated polysynaptic motor responses, sympathetic, endocrine, local and systemic immune responses. The most sophisticated response however, one that is particularly well developed (and certainly well studied) in humans, is a conscious experience that motivates the entire organism to take drastic protective action. This experience is called pain.
