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.

After spending a year at a prestigious finishing school in New York City, Grace Watts, a spoiled plantation princess, returns to Savannah, to discover that her entire world is in peril. Her family's fortune has been wiped out, her dream of becoming a journalist dies, and her parents' marriage is on the rocks. In all the kerfuffle, someone left a closet door open, and the skeletons are getting rest. Her sunshine-and-lollipops existence swiftly plunges into a dark, secretive hell, and there's nobody she can turn to. While those she once trusted are “unavailable,” or using her to promote their own agendas, she finds solace in the arms of Elijah King, a beautiful black man employed by her father. Grace was raised to believe that segregation was perfectly acceptable, and that “colored folk” were the inferior race, but as she begins to see the world through the eyes of this wise, intelligent man, her beliefs are turned upside-down on their heads.
Elijah not only challenges her mind, but sets her heart – and her knickers – on fire. If the whole world, and the law, aren't enough obstacles standing between them, there's Charles Trumaine, a powerful millionaire who always gets what he wants, no matter what the cost. He's not above playing very, very diry to get it. With Grace's family facing ruin, Charles knows the deck is stacked in his favor.
One little “I do,” will solve all their problems. The choice is hers: Love...or money?
This collection of mystical folk tales about the Celtic hero Finn MacCoul is magical and bloodthirsty compendium full of humour, love and heroism. The legend of Finn exists in several cultures, but most notably in Scotland and Ireland, where he and the Fian, his band of loyal followers, are still important cultural figures. Many place names that grace the Celtic lands have their basis in these tales. Kyle Rhea, for example, between the Isle of Skye and the mainland is so called because of the terrible fate that befell one of the Fian while trying to save his wife - these warriors valued honour above all else. Justice was dispensed decisively to evil-doers and members of the Fian alike. Finn himself was more of a king than the kings he often met, for he alone was the arbiter of all conflicts. His was a life of constant risk combined with a simple belief in the power of good over evil. Finn travelled and fought wherever he was most needed. His dealings with the Lochlanners (Scandinavians) give us a stirring insight into a time where men risked their lives in pursuit of something more than mere wealth. This fabulous and evoking collection of heroic tales conjures a time and place where giants and magic were commonplace and danger was everywhere, where kings ruled over kingdoms, not countries.Companion to the best selling Folk Tales of Scotland.
Only collection available of the Fenian cycle of stories. Stunningly illustrated by Paul Rumsey.
