Book Description

Pain is a pervasive symptom present in multiple areas of medicine. It is imperative that physicians not only evaluate and diagnose the source of pain, but that they also recognize how to manage the actual pain symptoms with effective treatment. Handbook of Acute Pain Management is an essential reference for professionals to enhance their knowledge of pain therapies.

Covering both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic approaches to treatment, this text provides updates on the most recent developments in the management of pain. This includes information on potential drug-drug and drug-disease interactions, patient controlled analgesia devices, and the emergence of continuous catheter techniques. The text also addresses pain management issues in special populations such as pediatric, opioid tolerant, and elderly patients.
