Paediatric Pain: Physiology, Assessment and Pharmacology (289)
Paediatric pain management is an essential part of anaesthetic practice but can be difficult. Multiple factors related to the considerable physiological changes that occur during childhood can make the assessment and pharmacological treatment of pain in paediatric patients more challenging. However, if pain is not adequately treated it can have lasting detrimental effects on a child. Successful pain management is therefore not only beneficial for the patient but improves satisfaction with health care for parents and carers alike.
