In recent years the amount of research carried out on pain has increased enormously, and the expectations of both patients and doctors regarding its treatment have been raised. Pain which in the past was taken for granted as an inevitable consequence of surgical procedures or terminal illness can now be alleviated, and it has become more important for all doctors to have a basic understanding of the subject. The early clinical contact and the problem-solving approach of the new curriculum means that medical students will encounter the problem of pain much earlier in their careers than formerly. This book provides a concise and easily understandable account of the nature of pain and its treatment. Unlike most books currently on the market, it iswritten at a level suitable for medical students and other non-specialists. Table of Contents: Part 1 The nature of painThe nature of pain. Pain in society. The measurement of pain. Basic mechanisms of pain. The biopsychosocial nature of pain.Part 2 Clinical Aspects of PainAcute and chronic pain. Pain syndroms in the head, face and neck.
