Outpatient clinic run by consultants (usually anaesthetists) with a special interest in the management of chronic pain. Developed from the 1950s. Its role includes diagnosis of the underlying condition and management directed at reducing subjective pain experiences, reducing drug consumption, increasing levels of normal activity and restoring quality of life. Requires appropriate facilities for consultation, and performance of nerve blocks and surgical procedures. Anaesthetists, physicians, psychologists, and neurologists may be involved. Primary referrals to the clinic are usually from general practitioners or hospital consultants. Swerdlow M (1992). Anaesthesia; 47:977-80 See also, Pain management


"A great ability of the authors is to trim down the information given so that only the core knowledge needed is presented. This is especially useful for quick revision..." "The book's excellence is especially apparent in the sections on clinical anaesthesia" "...the 'A to Z' is becoming an anaesthetic clasic." Anaesthesia, 2001, 56, pp.714-15 "...for the more senior trainee it is an ideal reference book, and for trainees taking examinations it is second to none. With virtually all the topics pertinent to the FRCA in one book, locating the answer to that difficult MCQ question, or finding the exact formula for the oxygenation index, becomes very easy." "It should be in every anaesthetic department's library." British Journal of Anaesthesia, 84 (5), 699-703 (2000) "The strength of this encyclopaedia lies in its A to Z format which makes quick searches easy and convenient." "The second edition is remarkable comprehensive..." International Journal of Obstetric Anaesthesia For the third edition, the authors have revised and fully updated existing text and provided additional entries and references relevant to both anaesthesia and intensive care. In a single volume they have provided a comprehensive encyclopaedia of anaesthesia and intensive care for the trainee and the trainer, whether they are of a surgical, medical, anaesthetic, operating theatre or nursing background. Intensive Care entries have been expanded again in the Third Edition and added illustrations help to explain difficult concepts. Entries are very easily searchable and terminology summaries are bite-sized, succinct, yet comprehensive and very practical.
