Pain Management Made Incredibly Easy! is divided into four parts. Part 1 covers the fundamental concepts of pain, including the anatomy and physiology of pain, the experience of pain, and pain assessment. Part 2 covers common types of pain as well as pain specific to AIDS patients, cancer patients, pediatric patients, and elderly patients.
Part 3 discusses managing pain, including pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches to pain management, acute pain management, management of surgical pain, and alternative and complementary therapies. Part 4 concerns patient education about dependency and abuse and lifestyle management. Appendices cover web resources, the IASP classification of chronic pain syndromes, and various pain assessment scales. The book continues the user-friendly approach of the Incredibly Easy! series, using Nurse Joy and friends to make the text entertaining as well as informative.
A DESMEDIDA NA MEDIDA e o segundo caderno de anotacoes de Camus.
Entre aforismos ('Levar sua lucidez ate o extase') e instrucoes criativas tambem sinteticas ('Fazer anteceder o romance de fragmentos de jornal'), ganham espaco comentarios de suas leituras filosoficas e fragmentos de prosa, depois aproveitados em suas principais obras. Mas ainda mais do que as obras, e o proprio escritor que aqui toma forma ante os olhos do leitor.
Eduarda Aivara dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” ir dzejnieka devītais krājums, kurā apkopoti un sakārtoti pēdējo piecu gadu laikā tapušie dzejoļi. Laiks nestāv uz vietas. Dažs cilvēks sakrītas, dažs piebriest, dažs uzkumpst, dažs sportodams staltāks top. Vecās drānas vairs neder, un jāmeklē atkal no jauna. Dzejoļu krājums “Parādības” rāda, ka atkal ir izdevies atrast izteiksmi, kas der kā uzlieta. Dzejas forma netraucē, to pat it kā nemaz nemana, un lasītāju tieši apņem gan īsta brieduma skaidrība, gan joprojām jauneklīgā spēja ļauties brīnumiem, gan rimta dzīves nenovēršamā traģisma apjausma. Jānis Elsbergs Savukārt autors norāda: “”Parādībās” esmu ievērojis savu kompozīcijas principu, radot kulminācijas ar satura un māksliniecisko izteiksmes līdzekļu palīdzību. Arī šajā grāmatā būtisku vietu ieņem dzejoļi ar gariem virsrakstiem, mans jaunievedums. Šādas formas dzejoļiem nav analogu ne tikai šeit, bet arī, cik man zināms, citur pasaulē.”
