9780931092206: Measurement of Pain in Infants and Children (Progress in Pain Research and Management, V. 10)

Exciting research initiatives on pain measurement have developed in recent years. In this book, some of the most productive investigators from Europe, North America, and Australia share their understanding of the different approaches to the field. Basic and clinical science as well as different disciplines of clinical practice in psychology, nursing, and medicine are represented. Physiological, anatomical (imaging), behavioral, and self-help techniques of pain measurement are discussed.
Chapter topics include: roles of measurement in pain management and research; psychometric issues in the measurement of pain in children; neurophysiological and neurobiological correlates of supraspinal pain processing: measurement techniques; flexion reflex properties in the human infant: a measure of spinal sensory processing in the newborn; physiological measures of pain; behavioral measures of pain; facial display of pain; measurement of pain by self-report; composite measures of pain; and putting pain measurement into clinical practice.

Review:

The book is suited ideally to those with an interest in pain assessment as a research tool. It is current, topical and comprehensive in covering its field. As this text is devoted specifically to pain assessment in paediatrics, it is more comprehensive and instructive in this area than most of the major pain textbooks. Of course there are practical applications for such tools and those seeking to trace the validity of various pain assessment scales in paediatrics are well served by this text as a reference point. The chapters are well researched and well referenced.

This book will be useful to anyone intending to undertake clinical research in the paediatric pain field. It would also appeal to those involved with acute and chronic paediatric pain management clinics where a knowledge of the limitations of various pain management tools is necessary. Others who will find at least specific chapters useful include those treating children who are unable to self-report pain, e.g. cerebral palsy patients or neonates and infants. Its subject matter is too involved for those with only a passing interest. The final chapter on the clinical application of pain measurement is, however, essential reading for anyone who deals with children in pain. --Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health

..this book is a concise, highly accessible update on pain measurement in children. It is unique in its focus on integrating the practical and technical aspects of pain measurement and should appeal to a wide audience of both clinicians and scientists. --Pain Research & Management

...this book elevates the reader's awareness of the complexity of measuring pain and of the strengths and weaknesses of current pain measures. This book serves as a reality check for practitioners and researchers interested in making scientific, reproducible progress in pain management. Measuring pain is no easy task.

...[Chapter 4] describes in exquisite detail the Flexion Reflex Properties of the human infant as a measurement of pain processing ... [In Chapter 5 Sweet and McGrath] review studies that examine the correlation of routinely measured physiological changes (e.g., increases in blood pressure or heart rate) with painful experiences. Using their own brand of common sense they examine each parameter's reliability, validity, and specificity with regard to pain measurement. This chapter is a 'must read' for any clinician or researcher who stands at the patient's bedside and believes he/she can judge a patient's pain based on [these parameters].

This well-written chapter [Chapter 9] will greatly aid a researcher in making [the choice among many available measuring formats].

...[This book] contains a tremendous amount of information ... [It] allows the reader to discover a pain measure and to read a well-referenced review of that measure. --Journal of Pharmaceutical Care in Pain & Symptom Control
