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.
