Acute pain is experienced primarily in relation to surgery and trauma, but is also present in patients with burns, cancer, and other medical
conditions. This compact volume of the Oxford Pain Management Library serves as a concise guide to treating acute pain in its many
manifestations. Providing a background of basic science, this book covers the fundamentals of pain, the pharmacology of drugs used, and summarises the current evidence base for the management of acute pain. It provides practical direct clinical applications for busy
healthcare professionals to follow and strategies for the management of specific medical conditions and specific patient groups such as the elderly.
This pocketbook, written by highly respected multidisciplinary European experts within the field, will appeal to trainee clinicians and above in both primary and secondary care, and all related healthcare professionals.
