Interventional Pain Management: A Practical Approach is the second edition of this comprehensive guide, which includes the latest advances in anaesthesia and brand new content, edited by international experts in anaesthesiology from the US, UK and India. The book is divided into nine sections, beginning with the basics of interventional pain management. The second section covers the documents for consent to interventional procedures and protocols involved in pain management. Further sections cover interventional pain management for different anatomical areas including head and neck, chest and thorax, abdomen and pelvis, spine and back. The concluding sections sections of the book cover advanced pain management, ultrasound guided procedures and alternate therapies such as intramuscular stimulation and dry needling. Enhanced by nearly 400 images and illustrations and an accompanying DVD, Interactive Pain Management: A Practical Approach is an essential resource for anaesthesiologists.

It has been said that real economics begins with love expressed in the Principle of the General Welfare as the foundational economic principle. To the degree to which it is developed, civilization prospers, or is lost and, inversely, disintegrates. But what is love, to have this effect? The story deals with the question in a Kaleidoscopic fashion that offers surprising new vistas at every turn. The story is situated in Leipzig, Germany. The protagonist is an American diplomat, who rather than being in control of things finds himself bewildered by the course of a love affair that unfolded more brilliantly than he has dared to hope for, but ended with a somewhat 'empty' tone. Here the world-critical story of economics begins that he knows nothing about, and much less has experienced. The story may be classified as social science fiction, but it really belongs into a class of its own for which no classification yet exists. It begins in the setting of a pub where many a question about love has been pondered over the centuries, and perhaps so even in political contexts. The cover image for the book is of historic political significance, perhaps even of world-historic significance. Behind the entrance shown, to a small pub on a small street, a private meeting had taken place, as I was told recently, between Mikhail Gorbachev and a high-level official of the DDR government, perhaps with party chief Eric Honecker during the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Republic in October 1989. No one knows what love 'pains' may have driven the agenda, as both had likely seen the writing on the wall, that without love for the general welfare, economies disintegrate, and that without economies, political regimes cannot stand. On November 9, that year, the Berlin Wall was breached that had imprisoned the nation. On December 1, the state essentially voted itself out of existence. A year and a half later, on December 25, 1991, then as President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev resigned. For all practical purposes, right of wrong, the Soviet Union had lost the heart of the people. Gorbachev resigned from an 'empty' seat. The economics story in this book was not written with the political collapse in the East in mind. The story is situated a long time earlier when it appeared that the Communist regime would last a thousand years. The story was created to explore the economic principles, especially their root in love, and their reflection in civilization; and how the much-more devastating economic collapse of the West might be avoided by these principles. The Kaleidoscope Project became a subsequent feature for me. I had started to write books that I would love, that are filled with a kaleidoscope of superlatives that define the riches of our humanity. My writing project began with two small novels, Flight Without Limits - a science fiction experiment to open the portal to the human superlatives - and a larger novel, Brighter than the Sun - a fictional project to explore the human dimension of the greatest intentional catastrophe that humanity has prepared against itself, termed "thermonuclear war" that is still on the agenda. The larger novel explores against the background of catastrophe, the superlatives of the inner and enduring riches of our humanity. But the work didn't stop there. It just began. It became apparent that the human superlatives are so rich that they are best explored simply by themselves, for their own merit, so that a super-imposed context would tend to dilute them. The result became a series of twelve novels that I have named, The Lodging for the Rose. The work became a kaleidoscope-experience of superlatives, where new vistas of our inner riches come into view with every turn. The story in this book, is from Book 1 of the series.
We don't know exactly who wrote the Book of Hebrews from the Bible, but it was written to a bunch of Hebrew Jewish Christians back in the day. Christianity was new to them and the writer feared that many of them would jump back into Judaism again, so the Book of Hebrews could have been considered Christian Basics 101. But, they decided to call it something else. Hebrews tells us why Jesus is superior and sufficient, and explains why being a Christian is so awesomely cool. This will help us to stand firm in our faith, trust and believe in God, and never ever quit. It's the confidence-builder we need in being a Christian. Join us today as we study the Book of Hebrews together. As with all books in A Redneck's Guide series, we keep it simple and easy-to-understand. We hope you receive a blessing from it!
Pain is a subject of significant scientific and clinical interest. This has resulted both from realistic rodent models, and the publication of imaging, psychological and pharmacological studies in humans. Investigators studying rodents refer to anatomical and physiological studies in non-human primates to make their results relevant to humans. Psychophysical and pharmacological studies in humans are interpreted in terms of anatomical and physiological studies in animals; primarily evidence from rodents and cats. There are significant differences in pain mechanisms between these species and primates. Over 20 years of imaging studies have demonstrated the activation of human cortical and subcortical structures in response to painful stimuli. Interpretation of these results relies upon an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of these structures in primates. Jones, Lenz, Casey and Willis review the anatomy and physiology of nociception in monkeys and humans, and provide a firm basis for interpreting studies in humans.
