Bonica's Management of Pain

Bonica's Management of Pain is the "gold standard" text in pain management. This is the first and only textbook to take a comprehensive and practical approach to all areas of pain management, including its psychological issues. From cancer and surgical pain to visceral pain, this book covers diseases, treatments, causes, and effects. The first of three parts covers the fundamental aspects of pain, its anatomy, physiological and psychological bases. The second part addresses the techniques that alleviate pain and, though the primary focus is on analgesic block, other methods are covered. Clinical impressions and observations of diseases and disorders with painful syndromes constitute the third part of the book.
