Atlas of Pain Management Injection Techniques, 4e PDF Download

Focusing on the "how-to" details of pain management injection techniques, this best-selling atlas helps you master the key nerve blocks you need to know to successfully treat common and uncommon pain syndromes. Nearly 200 joint and muscular injections, as well as 30 brand-new injection techniques, are presented in a highly illustrated, easy-to-follow format. Dr. Steven D. Waldman walks you through every essential pain management procedure used today – from the head and neck to the foot and ankle, and everywhere in between.

Shows exactly how to evaluate the causes of pain, identify the most promising injection technique, locate the injection site with precision, and deliver effective pain relief to your patients.
Helps you find what you need quickly with a logical organization by anatomic region, and templated chapters that cover indications and clinical considerations, clinically relevant anatomy, technique, side effects and complications, and Dr. Waldman’s own clinical pearls.
Focuses on the "how" rather than the "why" of office-based procedures, including greatly expanded ultrasound content that includes illustrations showing proper transducer placement, patient positioning, and ultrasound images.
Includes 30 brand-new injection techniques, including Greater Auricular Nerve Block, Genicular Nerve Block, Medial Cutaneous Nerve Block, Digital Nerve Block of the Thumb, Sacral Nerve Block, Injection Technique For Plantar Fasciitis, and many more.
Features new full color drawings that show appropriate needle placement and trajectory used to reach each target, as well as photographs, radiographs, ultrasound, CT, and MRI images throughout.

Well over 130 years have passed since Carl Koller frst used cocaine to perform an eye operation without pain. Although Koller’s landmark discovery forever changed how surgery is performed and unwittingly created a cottage industry in regional anesthesia drugs, needles, and, of course, regional anesthesia
textbooks, a careful analysis of the ensuing years reveals that most of the advances in regional anesthesia drugs have centered around the development of safer local anesthetics and improved needles. The landmark texts by Pitkin, DeJong, Moore, and others helped make the use of regional anesthesia drugs accessible to the general practitioner. These early books standardized techniques, needle sizes and lengths, and, perhaps most importantly, the dosages of local anesthetics for the common techniques. Lofgren’s discovery of lidocaine in 1943 moved regional anesthesia drugs into the operating room and obstetric suite, as well as into doctors’ and dentists’ offces. Much safer than local ester anesthetics such as procaine, the most widely used local anesthetic up to that time, lidocaine’s larger therapeutic window was much more forgiving of clinical missteps when nerve blocks were performed, and lidocaine has been the mainstay of regional anesthesia drugs ever since.
In the 1980s, pain medicine came into its own as practitioners tested and applied the simple hypothesis that the cause of pain must be diagnosed frst to ensure a successful treatment. Along with the birth of this new subspecialty came a new set of “bibles” by Raj and by Cousins and Bridenbaugh and the frst edition of Atlas of Pain Management Injection Techniques, which was frst published in 2000. I think that the feld of pain management is entering a new and exciting era now that ultrasound guidance has become increasingly utilized when regional anesthesia drugs are administered. Only time will tell whether ultrasound guidance is a true “moment” or merely a passing fancy that will go the way of nesacaine and succinylcholine drips, but my clinical impression is that ultrasound guidance represents an important advance in regional anesthesia and pain management that I think will stand the test of time. In addition to presenting the fundamentals of ultrasound guidance in the how-to-do-it format that has made previous editions of this book so popular, I have included many new color fgures and ultrasound, fluoroscopic, and magnetic resonance images, along with new full-color, clinically relevant anatomic drawings to make the techniques described even more accessible to my readers. With the able assistance of the editorial team at Elsevier, we have added clear, concise captions to every fgure and strived to improve the layout of the book to make it even more readable than previous editions. I sincerely hope that you will enjoy using this book as much as I enjoyed writing it
