Overview

PRACTICAL MANAGEMENT OF PAIN presents a comprehensive approach to chronic pain with its practical, concise descriptions of pain evaluation, pain syndromes, rationales for management, and treatment modalities. The book includes commonly seen pain syndromes, including headaches, trunk pain, orofacial pain, back pain, and extremity pain, as well as specific pain syndromes such as postoperative pain, pain due to cancer, phantom pain, and pain in the management of AIDS patients. This book is excellent both for non-specialists who treat the occasional pain patient and for physicians specializing in pain management.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Louis G. Salib
Practically all the modern techniques used to controlacute and chronic pain syndromes are covered in this comprehensive andattractively presented book on pain management. The second edition waspublished in 1992. The purpose is to cover the etiology, pathology,and clinical presentation of different pain syndromes, with detailedexplanations of how to manage each one of them. These objectives areworthy because pain is one of the most terrible of human experiences. I believe the editors' objectives are successfully met. According tothe editors, this book is written for practicing pain clinicians aswell as for trainees in pain fellowship programs. I believe it can beof benefit to all health professionals who care for patients in pain,especially anesthesiologists, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons,obstetricians, and family practitioners. The lead editor is a famousname in the field of pain management. His selection of 103 of the bestpain specialists is appreciated. This book is a detailed, interestingexplanation of the different pain modalities with clear, well presentedmodes of management. Each management modality and its outcome ispresented, supported by literature. Unfamiliar but interestingsituations are also covered, such as pain management in space. Theeditors also try to cover future achievements in pain management. Thebest feature, which is covered very well, is the practical view of eachmanagement modality. The appendixes and glossary are readilyaccessible. The main shortcoming is that there is some deficiency inthe explanation of the actual clinical value of spinal endoscopy, andalso the CPT codes. This book can easily replace a whole stack ofpain management books. It iscomplete, comprehensive, and easy toread. Newly discussed subjects, such as acupuncture, preemptiveanalgesia, organization of pain services, and pain management in theemergency room, in home care, and in outer space justify replacing theprevious edition.

These objectives are worthy because pain is one of the most terrible of human experiences. I believe the editors' objectives are successfully met.
Audience:According to the editors, this book is written for practicing pain clinicians as well as for trainees in pain fellowship programs. I believe it can be of benefit to all health professionals who care for patients in pain, especially anesthesiologists, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, obstetricians, and family practitioners.
