Textbook of Pain Management, 3rd Edition 2014 High Quality Scanned PDF
“Pain Pain Go Away, Come Again on Another Day” True to the above words, perhaps the most important factor in the revolution of pain management has been evolution in the attitude of individuals who are no longer willing to suffer pain in silence. Scientific discoveries that explain some of the most perplexing features of pain have facilitated this change in attitude. It has been our constant effort to put forward these scientific discoveries in front of our readers. This is one among them. The third edition includes addition of new chapters, pictures, illustrations and content developed by our famed faculty from all over the globe. This would not have been possible without contribution from our esteemed contributing authors. They are academicians par excellence who are well aware of the current trends in pain management. The contributors are all actively involved in clinical and/or research work, so the text written by them reflects their real hands-on experience. Their effort reflects in improving the depth of discussion in the book. The book contains eight parts: General Considerations, Basic Sciences, Pain Syndromes, Acute pain, Interventions, Advanced Therapy, Pain in Special Situations and Adjuncts in Pain Management. Every part has been written keeping the basic science and latest developments in view. The reader will find it easier to understand the disease process and the relevant treatment. The language is simple and the discussion extensive. As ever, we have been focussing on the evidence-based medicines, guidelines, and as a value addition, we have added information from much acclaimed Cochrane Review where ever it was available and appropriate. You will find the information in the third edition ‘a cut above the rest.’ We have raised the bar of standard pain management principles by few notches above the prevailing practice.
