CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Chronic pain is unlike acute pain, it lasts beyond the time necessary for
healing and resists normal treatment. The primary indicator of chronic pain is
not how long it persists, but whether it remains long after it should have
disappeared. No one patient feels pain in the same way and yet in veterinary
medicine the patient’s pain is generally assessed based on a single standard.
There is increasing focus in veterinary medicine on measuring and resolving
pain and suffering. This focus is being supported by an increased
understanding of pain neurophysiology, a greater offering of innovative
pharmacological treatments, and consumer demand. This book is written for the
veterinary health care professional seeking a greater depth of knowledge in the
mechanisms of pain accompanying chronic disease states, and potential targets
for treatment. It goes beyond common protocols by focusing on the latest
evidence and our understanding of ‘why and how to treat’. It strikes a balance
between current physiological and biochemical theories of pain transmission
without losing sight of the practical need for such information.
