Opis książki

This clinically focused book provides the essential modalities for managing pain in older patients. Chapters cover a variety of topics important for clinicians, including effective approaches, evaluation, acute and chronic pain, interventional strategies, and addiction issues. Complexities in assessing and treating pain when presented with multiple comorbidities and the unique physical, cognitive, and sensory changes that occur in the elderly are discussed in detail. Practical, concise and authored by leaders in pain medicine, this will serve as an invaluable guide to practitioners that care for older people. "Pain management is made more complex in elderly patients due to a wide variety of comorbidities, such as impaired metabolism, sensitivity to medications side effects, communication impairment, and memory loss. This appears to be the only textbook that uniquely addresses the topic. I applaud the editors and authors for attempting to tackle this void. ... The text is generally well written and might be appropriate for practitioners from internal medicine, geriatrics, physiatry, and pain medicine." (M. Kwesi Kwofie, Anesthesia & Analgesia, Vol. 130 (5), May, 2020)
