Opioids are the mainstay of therapy for acute pain for both medical and surgical conditions. An understanding of their actions and a basic knowledge of pharmacokinetics and pharmaceutical preparation will enable a doctor to optimise the treatment of acute pain. If the basic principles are taken into account there is no reason now to allow patients to be distressed by inadequate analgesia.
