"This is the fourth edition of a practical guide to acute pain management, and the first edition that includes access to an ebook version. ... This is a handy resource for anyone who takes care of patients in pain, regardless of the setting. The authors are experienced clinicians who have been writing about this subject for a long time. ... There are others books on acute pain management, but they tend to focus more on theory than on practice. This one provides the nitty-gritty details of pain management that are expected to be taught at the bedside but often are not."-Tariq M. Malik, MD, University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in Doody's Book Reviews "This exceptional book incorporates a conglomerate of evidence about acute pain. Outstanding is the concise format which makes it very usable for clinicians."-Prof. Esther Pogatzki-Zahn, MD, Department of Anesthesiology, University Hospital Muenster, Germany
