Description - Emergency Sedation and Pain Management by John H. Burton
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.
