Acupuncture in Pain Management Summary:

Chronic pain is a significant and sometimes debilitating medical problem, which has a significant impact in our economy and quality of life. It is perhaps the most common reason for Americans to seek medical care and is the leading cause of disability. Despite several options of chronic pain treatment including medications and interventional procedures, the long-term effect of current treatments remains limited. Therefore, it is both necessary and timely to seek complementary and alternative treatments as a part of integrative medicine for chronic pain management. Acupuncture is a well-known modality of complementary and alternative medicine that may help improve pain and related comorbid symptoms, decrease drug dependency and usage, and lead to better quality of life. Although acupuncture has been used over thousands of years for the treatment of many clinical conditions including clinical pain, many factors remain unclear to healthcare providers with regard to its effectiveness, mechanisms and side effects. This book consists of fourteen interrelated chapters to provide the following categories of up-to-date information: 1) the general concept of acupuncture and its role in pain management; 2) current research evidence of acupuncture mechanisms; 3) acupuncture and neuroimaging and 4) clinical data on various modalities of acupuncture therapy including auricular acupuncture and their role in treating pain conditions such as low back and neck pain, headaches, osteoarthritis pain, abdominal and pelvic pain, neuropathic pain, myofascial pain, cancer-related pain, postoperative pain, and pediatric pain. Moreover, a chapter on Tai Chi, an ancient Chinese martial art, is included to discuss its role in chronic pain treatment. There is also a chapter to discuss the challenges in evaluating acupuncture trial outcomes and the current research effort on this issue. We trust that this book will help healthcare providers to gain comprehensive knowledge on the role of acupunctu

Clinical Pain Management Second Edition Acute Pain Summary:

Acute Pain brings coverage of this diverse area together in a single comprehensive clinical reference, from the basic mechanisms underlying the development of acute pain, to the various treatments that can be applied to control it in different clinical settings. Much expanded in this second edition, the volume reflects the huge advances that continue to be made in acute pain management. Part One examines the basic aspects of acute pain and its management, including applied physiology and development neurobiology, the drugs commonly used in therapy, assessment, measurement and history-taking, post-operative pain management and its relationship to outcome, and preventive analgesia. Part Two reviews the techniques used for the management of acute pain. Methods of drug delivery and non-pharmacological treatments including psychological therapies in adults and children and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation are considered here. Part Three looks at the many clinical situations in which acute pain can arise, and the methods of treatment that may be suitable in each circumstance, whether the patient is young or old, has pain due to surgery, trauma, medical illness or childbirth, or is undergoing rehabilitation. Issues specific to the management of acute pain in the developing world are also covered here.

Chronic Postsurgical Pain Summary:

Primum non nocere... The fact that a surgical procedure can leave any kind of pain casts a shadow over this tenet, which is seen as the basis of medical practice and anchor of its principle ethic... It is all the more surprising in that medicine has only paid attention to this paradoxical chronic pain situation for the past few years. Clarifying the knowledge acquired in this field has become all the more urgent for any care-giver today confronted by a legitimate request from patients: Why and how can a surgical procedure, which is supposed to bring relief, leave behind an unacceptable sequela? This is the approach which the contributors to this new subject of major clinical interest invite you to follow as you work your way through this book.

Chronic Pain Management for the Hospitalized Patient Summary:

Up to 35% of adults suffer from chronic pain, and a substantial number of these patients are admitted to hospitals every year. A major concern of these patients is whether the pain will be adequately controlled during hospitalization. these patients are more likely to have poor pain control and may experience an exacerbation of their co-exisitng chronic pain condition during hospital admission. Adequate pain control is directly related to clinical outcomes, length of hospital stay, and patient satisfaction. A considerable body of evidence demonstrates the medical, social, and economic benefits of satisfactory inpatient pain control. Currently, there are limited pain control guidelines to address this challenging inpatient population. In fact, there are no guidelines outlinign best practices for postoperative pain control in patients with chronic pain. The complex nature of chronic pain and a dearth of publications addressing the concerns of these patients make the creation of relevant guidelines difficult. The goal of this book is to equip clinicians to provide safe and effective management of hospitalized patients with co-existing chronic pain. Each chapter addresses a particular clinical question and is written by an expert in the field. Chapters describe basic principles and specific clinical situations commonly encountered during the care of patients with co-existing chronic pain in hospital settings.
