Overview

This work is cited in Brandon-Hill. Distinguishing the subspecialty that is the topic of this book from pharmacological approaches to medical pain management, Waldman (anesthesiology, U. of Missouri at Kansas City School of Medicine) offers a compendium of interventional techniques in a "how-to" format. Seventy-one contributions explain topics and techniques in the areas of anatomy and physiology of pain, patient evaluation, neural blockade and neurolyptic blocks, neuroaugmentation, spinal administration of opioids and other analgesic compounds, and neurosurgery.
