The electronic version of Wall and Melzack's Textbook of Pain presents the third edition of the classic text with computerized search capabilities. This software also contains MEDLINE abstracts from key pain-related journals of the previous 5 years. Since the first edition in 1984, the reference text has been an authoritative standard for the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of pain. This latest CD-ROM edition continues to maintain the quality and prestige of the written format with the added feature of immediate access to a vast array of pain-related information.
