Responding To Pain

WENDY ELLIMAN SPECIAL TO THE JEWISH NEWS

H

ava Yaari of Tel Aviv was

deeply distressed to learn
that the gynecological
surgery she had under-
gone two years ago would have
to be repeated.
"It wasn't the fact of the op-
eration that upset me," she
says. "The doctors told me at
the time that I might need an-
other one. It was the first few
days after the surgery that I
dreaded. The pain had been so
intense, that time had nothing
to dull the memory."
The second time around,
however, was totally unlike the
first. Within hours after the op-
eration, Mrs. Yaari was sitting
in a chair, reading a magazine,
pain-free. The difference: a pa-
tient-controlled analgesic pump
(PCAP) connected to her vein,
which injects tiny
amounts of (in her
case) morphine, at
the touch of her
finger.
"Pain and
its effect on
recovery are
growing em-
phases in
health care
worldwide,"
says Gila
Rosen, a regis-
tered nurse and
acute pain service
coordinator at the He-
brew University-Hadassah
Medical Center in Jerusalem.
"Many doctors in Israel and
abroad believe that suppress-
ing pain not only improves pa-

tient well-being, but actually
speeds recovery."
The post of acute pain service
coordinator is new to both Is-
rael and Hadassah, and is a
one-day-a-week job, so far. Dur-
ing the remaining days, Ms.
Rosen works in the recovery
room, as she has since 1971.
"It was my recovery room
work that led to my interest in
post-operative pain," says Ms.
Rosen. 'To me, minimizing pain
is integral to my job." When
Hadassah's anesthesiology de-
partment requested a nurse one
day a week to work with the
Medical Center's four PCAPs,
Ms. Rosen immediately applied.
Now, as Israel's sole acute
pain service coordinator, she
demonstrates to doctors and
nurses from Hadassah and all
over the country the use
of the intravenous
PCAPs — how to
change sy-
ringes, how to
set a basal
rate of small
renewable
doses of
pain killers,
and how to
fix delay
times and the
maximum
amounts that
can be given in an
hour. She and they
have seen that once the patient
has the means of controlling
pain in his own hands, he seems
to need far less of the pain-
killing medication. ❑

Israeli Population
Shows Increase

Jerusalem (JTA) — On the
eve of its 46th birthday,
Israel has roughly 5,350,000
inhabitants, according to the
Central Bureau of Statistics.
The total represents an in-
crease of 115,000, or 2.2 per-
cent over the year before.
The population statistics,
which are released annually
when Israel celebrates In-
dependence Day, indicate
that two-thirds of this year's
increase was due to births
rather than immigration.
This year's Independence
Day celebration fell on
Thursday, a day after the
country marked its
Memorial Day commemora-
tions for those who died in
Israeli wars.

Israelis are dispersed over
some 1,170 towns, villages
and small settlements, ac-
cording to the Bureau of
Statistics, and 17 Israeli
cities now have populations
in excess of 100,000, as corn-
pared with only 11 a year
ago.
During the past year, the
bureau reported, some
71,000 . immigrants came to
Israel, the vast majority
coming from the former
Soviet Union.
Immigration was down by
3,500 from the previous
year. The drop was explain-
ed as being due to a greater
stability than in the past in
centers of Jewish population
around the world.
