Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Louis G. Salib, MD (University of Chicago)
Description: This is a comprehensive collection of basic and advanced information about pain management, whether acute or chronic. There are many unique features, but the best in my opinion is the chapter about advanced interventional techniques in regional anesthesia. It is an updated version of the original edition that goes back to 1985.
Purpose: According to the author, the purpose is to present a fresh look at the dynamic field of regional anesthesia, a new organizational structure. It gives special care to include all aspects of regional anesthesia. Notable features are the advanced regional anesthesia techniques and outcome sections. The book is needed for its updates of information and coverage of new advances and discoveries in the field of pain management. The book meets the author's objectives.
Audience: According to the author, the book is written for pain management clinicians. I think the book is primarily helpful to those with medical expertise in pain management. Definitely, the author is a credible authority in the subject of pain management.
Features: The book covers the basic knowledge about the pharmacology, anatomy, and clinical techniques of pain management. It also covers advances, complications, and outcomes of the practice of pain management. The best chapter is about advanced interventional techniques in regional anesthesia. It uses a lot of good illustrations and X-rays to help readers understand the different procedures. The appendixes about billing CPT codes and diagnoses ICD codes are appreciated.
Assessment: This is a great book that helps me significantly. Some chapters may have information similar to that in the book, Practical Management of Pain, 3rd edition, by the same author (Mosby, 2000), but this book includes a lot of new techniques that are missing in other books.
