Chapter 39: Pain Management in Infants and Children
Tintinalli’s Emergency Medicine (7th Edition) pages 265 – 270
Key Points and Pearls
- Pediatric procedures should be performed with pharmacological and nonpharmacological adjuncts to minimize pain (analgesia), decrease anxiety (anxiolysis), and provide sedation.
- Fasting status has no correlation with aspiration. Preprocedural fasting is not required and only prevents a theoretical risk of aspiration, though no evidence supports this risk.
