Pain Analysis: A Guide to Diagnosis describes the morphology of pain receptors. This book is composed of 12 chapters that discuss the triggering and conduction of the pain stimulus.
Some of the topics covered in the book are the localization, different types, development and course of stimulus, and characteristics of pain, as well as the conditions that produce the stimulus. Other chapters deal with the diagnosis of head and facial pain, neuralgia, cephalalgia, trunk and extremities pain, thoracic and acute abdominal pain, and colic. The discussion then shifts to the role of acute abdomen situation in metabolic diseases, the pain analysis in diseases in the retroperitoneal space, and lower abdomen that generates the feeling of pain. A chapter is devoted to the pain due to peripheral arterial occlusion. The final chapters focus on the special pain analysis in the newborn and infants.
The book can provide useful information to doctors, students, and researchers.
