The ever-increasing importance of pain management is highlighted by new chapters on pain physiology, analgesic medications, acupuncture, physical rehabilitation, and palliative analgesia, and most noticeably is reflected in the book's new title, Lumb & Jones' Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia. This edition brings together over 65 authors, offering a wide breadth and depth of expertise with contributions from anesthesiologists, pharmacologists, surgeons, criticalists, internists and other clinical specialists.
Extensive species chapters span the range of small and large animals, including expanded coverage of laboratory, exotic and zoo animal species, aquatic mammals and fish. Later chapters provide detailed coverage of important considerations for specific diseases and types of patients and procedures, including new chapters on the anesthetic management of dental, cancer, orthopedic and equine colic patients.
