About

Overview

The first title in Salem’s new Principles of Health series, this book discusses the branch of medicine that deals with causes, evaluation, prevention and treatment of pain across medical specialties. This single volume work discusses pain as both a symptom and a primary disease, and includes a broad range of topics, including: Physical vs. Emotional Pain; Treatment Plans; Pain Medications; Childhood Pain; and Geriatric Pain. Essays are comprehensive and accessible to high school and undergraduate students and general readers interested in the study, mechanics, and treatment of pain management - a must-have resource for students and researchers building a foundation in pain management. Each essay includes Principle Terms, multiple subheads including an opening Summary, and Further Reading. The volume ends with a Glossary, Bibliography, and Subject Index.
