Product Description:
The purpose of this text is to provide not only the science and current knowledge of pediatric pain management but a rationale for intervention. The book is ground-breaking in that it provides pearls for the recognition and management of multiple childhood chronic pain syndromes. Also, uncommon yet confounding issues such as pain management for epidermolysis bullosa are adequately addressed. Concerns unique to pediatric patients are reviewed. While there are no firm standards in pediatric chronic pain, a care plan is offered to help guide practitioners when possible.

The book will consist of 24 chapters, many co-written by a physician and a psychologist. Chapter 1 covers the history of pediatric chronic pain, the advancement pediatric pain as a clinical subspecialty, development of pediatric pain clinics, and characterization of the common pain syndromes. Chapters 2-4 cover, respectively, the research on early pain exposure and neuroplasticity, theories on the common adolescent pain syndromes, and the demographics of chronic pain in children. Chapters 5-16 discuss approaches to assessment and intervention for specific pediatric and adolescent pain syndromes. Chapters 17-23 address interventional techniques such as therapeutic blocks, neurablation, implantable systems, physical therapy, complementary therapy, and pharmacology including opioid tolerance. The final chapter discusses the role of the nurse practitioner in pediatric chronic pain.

4.0 out of 5 stars.  Organized and Helpful, January 10, 2012
By Glory4
I find the information in this book to be helpful and well organized. It puts dispersed information on pediatric pain management in one book that is helpful for the person that is not necessarily a pediatric pain specialist. This book is written by physicians who work in renowned medical institutions and who are well respected in their professions. While this is a first effort, I find that the authors have made positive steps towards enhancing further understanding of the subject matter.

1.0 out of 5 stars.  VERY POORLY WRITTEN BOOK, June 06, 2011
By PChang
The book is shoddy. The information is generic and poorly written. The data is poorly researched and not up to date. Pain medicine in children has made significant advances and the information in this book is from the 90's. The authors have taken information from adult pain medicine and lumped it into a book for pain in children, unfortunately, that is not how it works. Children present with different signs and symptoms, their treatment is different. The authors have done a significant disservice. It was disappointing to read the book. I do not recommend this book.
