Acute Pain Management Book
Acute Pain Management Ebook


This textbook is written as a comprehensive overview of acute
pain management. It is designed to guide clinicians through the
impressive array of different options available to them and to
patients. Since the late 1990s, there has been a flurry of interest in
the extent to which acute pain can become chronic pain and how
we might reduce the incidence of such chronicity. This overview
covers topics related to a wide range of treatments for pain management,
including the anatomy of pain pathways, the pathophysiology
of severe pain, pain assessment, therapeutic guidelines,

analgesic options, organization of pain services, and the role of
anesthesiologists, surgeons, pharmacists, and nurses in providing
optimal care. It also discusses the use of patient-controlled
analgesia and how this may or may not be effective and useful.
