Treatments, Mechanisms, and Adverse Reactions of Anesthetics and Analgesics is an essential read for anyone working in pain management. The book addresses the onset of pain, the cause of the pain, and the administration of analgesia or anesthesia. The etiology of pain is complex and multi-factorial, which is made more complex with the use of analgesics and local or general anesthetics. This volume works to clarify all of the subjects pertinent to anesthesia and the brain, from their variety, modes of action, and adverse effects.
