Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Michael G White, MD (Ochsner Clinic Foundation)
Description: This book reviews the approach to pain management in children in several clinical settings. Specific drugs and their unique attributes for application to children are included in this review with one chapter devoted to complementary and alternative approaches.
Purpose: The authors acknowledges data suggesting that pain relief in children is poorly served and attempts to provide a framework for providing appropriate means of pain control in children addressing their needs as unique from adults. This is clearly an area of need in pediatric practice and the book distills a tremendous body of literature into a practical approach.
Audience: This is a good source for physicians as well as other healthcare providers who may participate in the care of children in environments likely to cause discomfort.
Features: The book addresses the management of pain and the associated distress for children in many different settings, ranging from general clinic visits to hospice care. Current theoretical concerns and practical applications are reviewed for these settings, possibly a useful framework to minimize distress for the child at risk for inadequate pain management.
Assessment: This is a summary of presentations from the 5th International Forum on Pediatric Pain held in 2004 and serves as an up-to-date review of contemporary approaches to the unique needs of pediatric patients.
