ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that shows that long insertion time and female sex are associated with greater pain perception during colonoscopy. Factors affecting perception of pain during colonoscopy are poorly understood. Ability to predict such factors may help improve patient satisfaction with the procedure. Long insertion time and female sex are associated with greater pain perception. Skilled rapid intubation may be more important than sedation in reducing pain, which is an important factor in improving acceptance of the procedure.
