The first clinically focused text dedicated to the newly emerging area of pain medicine known as opioid-induced hyperalgesia (OIH), Opioid-Induced Hyperalgesia provides pain specialists, anesthesiologists, and neurologists with the most current, cutting-edge research and therapeutic options for treating OIH patients. It supplies best practice guidelines for the effective assessment, diagnosis, and management of OIH—need-to-know information clinicians trust and can use in their practice.
Organized to provide the information quickly and easily, the book includes dosage recommendations to help minimize the likelihood and/or delay onset of hyperglasia and covers management approaches such as opioid rotation and tapering, provide clinicians with alternative methods for treating OIH's difficult, persistent, and varied problems.
