Abstract

Sporting events, particularly "extreme" sports, are becoming increasingly more austere and thus further from readily available fixed facility medical care. The provider caring for acute injuries in these more remote locations will be faced with the need to treat pain in the injured athlete. This review provides a stepwise approach to safe and effective pain control in the austere environment.
