Product Description


"In essence, I consider that this can be looked upson as almost the complete core textbook in pain medicine, with the additional value of a very clear and useful section on regional anesthesia...Established specialists in 'Pain Medicine and Regional Anesthesia' will also find the book useful too because of its concise nature and easy accessibility of individual topics."--British Journal of Anaesthesia, 2005

"Pain books come in various forms and sizes these days. Some stress procedural techniques, some the theoretical aspects of pain, and some their usefulness because of their pocket size. This is one of the few books that can truly be called a textbook of pain for pain fellows and practicing pain physicians. It combines up-to-date information with a clear delivery in quick, easy-to-read chapters, making it a go-to book for a quick reference." - Tariq M. Malik, MD(University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine), Excerpts from Doody's review service, Rating - 4 Stars!

"The book comes with an online accompaniment, allowing the reader to consult the text via the internet, thus allowing the book's text and illustrations to be accessed flexibility. The online version is eay to navigate through using sidebar application. Illustrations can be enlarged and all references are available with one mouse click...The book is well balanced in terms of basic science and clinical applications and all chapters have a narrative flow that is not laborious and can be used effectively as a quick source of information, e.g for teaching or viva practice. Overall, this book sets out to provide a concise but complete overview of pain medicine without becoming too overwhelming for the reader. In my opinion, it would be an excellent textbook to read before or at the start of pain training and also as a resource to help manage a wide variety of pain syndromes in everyday practice."

4.0 out of 5 stars i read this for the ABMS pain board recert Oct. 27 2011
By pain doc - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
i read this cover to cover. then i took the pain board recert 10/11. i passed in 1993 then 2003 so it was time again.
i think i passed the exam. not all of the questions on the exam were in this book.
it was a good review that i read in about 40 hours.
the title says "essentials" and if you compare it with Bonica it really is a summary as opposed to Bonica which is
much more comprehensive (and is about five times bigger).
i think the definitive pain medicine review book for the boards has yet to be written.
this book is up to date, does a better job than the #2 edition, so maybe it will work for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Review of Pain Medicine July 17 2012
By drs - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm Board Certified in Pain Medicine & will be taking the ABA Recertification test later this year. This book is an excellent & enjoyable up to date review of the subject. When I initially took the ABA test 9 years ago, there was no core text that was anywhere near as good. I actually read a good part of the then current Bonica text to prepare for the exam in addition to doing different banks of questions. This book, as many reviewers have noted, is really the best cover to cover read in our field. Personally, I do not like the current edition of Bonica as much as the previous one, as it looses sight of the forest for the trees in many of the subjects covered, which I didn't feel was the case previously. This book, on the other hand, is a good balance between giving an overview of each subject with an appropriate amount of details. This book is an excellent text book as well as a review for the ABA test. It will also be useful for lecture preperation. For ABA test candidates, I would recommend this book together with & the Dannemiller Certification Coach on-line at [...]

4.0 out of 5 stars "Baby Miller" for Pain Anesthesiologists March 8 2012
By D-Bar - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Concise and well-written overview of pain medicine. This book is improved over the previous edition which I liked alot as well. Not written as a board review book, but its content is appropriate for looking up content and concepts for study. I used this book a great deal in studying for the ABA Pain Medicine boards.

This book is in my opinion equivalent in scope to pain medicine as Basics of Anesthesia: Expert Consult - Online and Print, 6e (Expert Consult Title: Online + Print) is to anesthesiology. This text also has a section on regional anesthetic techniques which is useful for a pain management anesthesiologist.

Gives a total review of pain and pain control modality in a clear and concise way. Have to get used to the Kindle version though.
