What would you like to do?
There are different types of patients angry seductive etc How does a 'pain patient' seek and respond to treatment and how would you treat this patient?
First you need to know exactly what you are dealing with. Take a careful case history, listening to what the patient is actually saying, rather than what you think they ought to be saying. Pain is exhausting and demoralising, and the patient may be irritable, especially if they have not slept well for months. I find it is best to respect the patient, who knows far more about how they feel than I do. Its nice to have a feeling of working together to address the problem. Also, if you have an open and respectful attitude, you learn things from the patient that you can suggest to your other patients. I find using a scale useful. The patient should be encouraged to put a tick at their pain level in the morning, afternoon and nightime. Although the patient finds it a nuisance, it helps you to see patterns and severity of symptoms and you can glean a lot of insight when you analyse the forms. Once you know what you are up against, you can bring hope in the form of effective treatment to the person, and that is a great feeling. This is the form I use: Very Important: This is the pain level that is experienced AFTER taking the daily medication prescribed by your doctor. 0-Pain free 1-Very minor annoyance -mild aches to some parts of the body. No pain medication needed. 2-Minor annoyance- dull aches to some parts of the body. No pain medication needed. 3-Annoying enough to be distracting. Over-the-Counter pain relievers (such as Naproxen Sodium, Paracetamol, or topical treatments such as Ibuleve or Arthritis Pain relieving rubs) take care of it. 4-Can be ignored if you are really involved in your work, but still distracting. Over-the-Counter pain relievers remove pain for 3-4 hours. 5-Can't be ignored for more than 30 minutes. Over-the-Counter pain relievers help somewhat (bring pain level from 5 to a 3 or 4) with pain for 3-4 hours. 6-Can't be ignored for any length of time, but you can still go to work & participate in social activities. Stronger painkillers (such as Tramadol) relieve pain for 3-4 hours. 7-Makes it difficult to concentrate, interferes with sleep. You can still function with effort. Stronger painkillers (such as Ultram) are only partially effective. (Stronger pain killers bring pain from a 7 to 4-6.) 8-Physical activity severely limited. You can read & converse with effort. Stronger pain killers (such as Tramadol) are not effective. (Narcotic pain killers do bring this pain down to a level 3 or lower.) 9-Non functional for all practical purposes. Cannot concentrate. Physical activity halted. Panic sets in.(Narcotic Pain killers bring the pain level from 9 to the 4-6 level.) 10-Totally non-functional. Unable to speak. Crying out or moaning uncontrollably - near delirium.

Doctors have to face the patients and their family when deciding treatment. They also have to bear the responsibility for all the decisions they make which has direct effe…ct on the patient.
That is a very broad question. I am not sure if that question is for a specific procedure, but the ultimate reason for a consent is to assure that the patient approved the pro…cedure. Generally the consent not only states that the patient agrees, but usually also states that the patient has been taught about what the procedure is, what the procedure's purpose is, why it is being done, what the risks, side effects are when consenting. This basically helps protect both the patient and the person that is performing the procedure.

Because they get tired. They are well aware of the health risks involved. But after awhile those risks don't seem as important as they once did. It's not that they WANT …to get sick and they certainly don't WANT to die. But they have come to realize that dying is impossible to escape and spending 3 - 4 days a week sitting in some Dr's office, while your blood is cleansed, is not "living" to some people.

If someone say myself slept with a woman who was going through chemo treatments for breast cancer. Would I be harmed by the radiation she went through? First, chemo is not ra…diation- it is chemical. It can be COMBINED with radiation. Radiation TREATMENT can take a couple of forms- radiation administered at a health care facility, and implanted sources of radiation. The first type stops when the treatment stops- no significant residual radiation. The second type involves very small quantities of radioactive materials implanted at the site to be treated. These are shielded by being inside the body. Bottom line- no you are not exposed to any significant amount of radiation. We are all exposed to tiny amounts of natural radiation simply from living- it is called background radiation. You will get more radiation from standing in sunlight for an hour than from sleeping next to your partner. I would urge you to talk with your partner's doctor- they are accustomed to answering questions.
