Pain is something that everyone feels but has always been difficult to understand and investigate due to its subjective nature. Practical Pain Management is written for all those involved in the care of people suffering from pain. The authors explain why pain is so often disregarded andpoorly managed by clinicians. With an emphasis on the practical management of both chronic and acute pain, the book explores the mechanisms involved in pain perception, the use of analgesic drugs, local anaesthetics, nerve blocks and stimulation techniques. The rehabilitation and care of patientswhose pain cannot be adequately relieved is also considered and some way in which specialist pain services can help with chronic pain syndromes are described. This comprehensive guide will help all those caring for patients in pain to have a better understanding of pain and to work more effectivelytowards its management.

Editorial Reviews

`I was supposed to pass this book to someone else to review, but I started reading it and found it so interesting that I had soon finished it! This little book contains a lot of information and I am impressed with its readability, and the clarity of the writing. I groan when reviewers judge abook essential reading for everybody. Nonetheless, Practical Pain Management comes close to deserving such a wide readership. Anaesthetics trainees should read this book within a few weeks of starting in the specialty. Not only will they gain an understanding of pain that would otherwise take monthsto acquire, but they might also start along the path towards specialisation in pain - a very good career move!'Gareth Greenslade, Bristol Royal Infirmary, Anaesthesia Points West, Summer 1995
