Book description

Procedural sedation and analgesia represents one of the great advances in the maturation of emergency medicine as a discrete speciality within medicine. Once the exclusive domain of the anesthesiologist, sedation and pain management procedures are now a routine part of all emergency department practices. Emergency Sedation and Pain Management is a comprehensive medical text addressing emergency sedation and analgesia with specific emphasis on treatment of the emergency department patient. The easily accessible, clinically oriented format allows the reader fast and efficient access to the key points in each chapter. The text presents a clinical approach to the treatment of pain in emergency patients, including pediatric and adult populations. Analgesia, sedation, and anesthetic techniques are presented in an informative, authoritative, and concise format - written and edited by physicians with extensive research as well as clinical emergency medicine expertise. The chapters are richly supplemented with tables, photographs, and step-by-step illustrations.


'Were you to judge a book by the cover … you might be forgiven for thinking that this one is purely for the medics. Closer inspection, however, reveals a veritable explosion of materials, all relevant to emergency nurses, and all revealing the finer points of pain management in utterly glorious technicolour. … Scanning the book for the first time, I could feel myself being sucked in, wanting to read it chapter and verse … Throughout the book, readers should enjoy the short, punchy chapters, all of which are richly referenced. … For those with a special interest in pain management, I would recommend investing in this book for yourself, but otherwise I would suggest a whip round to purchase this fantastic resource for your own department.'
