Patterns of pain ( visu )
1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
(Critical) This module presents a well-paced series of short insights into the nature, function, problems and surgical treatment of pain. The program elucidates physiologic knowledge and technique but omits discussion of psychophysiologicmanagement of pain, statistical data and numerous current theories, including the gate theory. Minimal coverage of practical problems and failures may cause a distorted view of the success of surgical treatment. Because its unsophisticatedapproach limits its usefulness to general audiences, the program can only be recommended with reservations for use as a general introduction to the topic
