Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Louis G. Salib, MD (University of Chicago)
Description: This book gives a concise description of the significant importance of pain control in the pediatric population, which is under evaluated, according to the authors, by some medical professionals. It describes a brief way of handling pain of different levels of severity in medical conditions of different pediatric populations, while referencing the background of psychological understanding of pain among parents and medical professionals.
Purpose: According to the author in the preface, the purpose is to present the first attempt to cover the topic of pain in pediatrics from the basic science to the bedside and even beyond to the community. These objectives are very worthy and the book meets them.
Audience: According to the author, this book is written for both clinicians and researchers in the field of pain management in pediatrics. I think this book is useful for all physicians and nurses who handle a child in pain, whether due to a medical condition, trauma, or surgery. The author is a credible authority.
Features: The book covers the physiology, pharmacology, and medical management of pediatric and adolescent pain and the important surgical conditions affecting that population with special reference to the understanding of pain among parents and medical professionals. Its reference to the politics of pediatric pain is new, well covered and very interesting. The chapter about a pain-free hospital is something I appreciate and admire. The index is very helpful.
Assessment: The book is well prepared. The author's effort to collect almost all of the available published information concerning the management of pain in children shows. The book highlights the problem of the underevaluation of the danger of pain and consequently the undertreatment of pain in children and adolescents, whether by parents or medical professionals. It is the first publication I have seen that covers these important topics.
