Congratulations to Dr. Patrick Tighe and Dr. Linda Le-Wendling!

For their publication “Clinically derived early postoperative pain trajectories differ by age, sex, and type of surgery” published in Pain, The Journal for the International Association for the Study of Pain. Pain trajectories is a novel way of characterizing postoperative surgical pain, where the linear relationship between pain score and time is quantified. This study incorporates the use of pain trajectories in the clinical setting with the use of electronic medical records (available data and a large number of data points) to better understand the changes of pain scores with time as it relates to gender, age and organ system being operated on.
