Caring for patients with acute pain problems can present a considerable challenge to junior doctors and nursing staff. Too often, the problems are inappropriately managed, resulting in the patient suffering unnecessary pain. The Management of Acute Pain provides simple, practical guidelines for those who prescribe and administer drugs for acute pain relief, particularly junior medical and nursing staff. The new edition has been extensively revised to take account of drug developments in recent years. Featuring easy to follow flowcharts, and clear concise descriptions, the book will be a valuable reference for House officers, SHO's, physiotherapists, and palliative care nurses.
