Covering both surgical and non-surgical pain, Acute Pain Management Essentials is a comprehensive, clinically oriented reference for the entire acute pain management team. Edited by Drs. Alan David Kaye and Richard D. Urman, this new title brings together the expertise of contributing authors from anesthesiology, medicine, surgery, and allied health professions to offer an interdisciplinary approach to this complex and fast-changing field. Beginning with an overview of basic principles, it then approaches pain management by organ system, by patient population, and by treatment modality, ending with review of subspecialty considerations and related topics.
