PowerPoint Presentation: K.J.S. ANAND et al, THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE, Vol. 317,November 1987. “ Golden Rule”: What is painful to an adult is painful to an infant untilproven otherwise” – Franck, 1989 current knowledge suggests that humane considerations should apply as forcefully to the care of neonates and young, nonverbal infants as they do to children and adults in similar painful and stressful situations . PowerPoint Presentation: Pain is a personal, subjective experience that involves sensory, emotional and behavioural factors associated with actual or potential tissue injury There is individual variation influenced by genetic makeup, cultural background, age and gender. What is pain?...... PowerPoint Presentation: Acute pain is experienced immediately after surgery (up to 7 days) Chronic pain lasts more than 3 months after the injury Postoperative pain PowerPoint Presentation: somatic (arising from skin, muscle, bone), visceral (arising from organs within the chest and abdomen), or Neuropathic (caused by damage or dysfunction in the nervous system). Patients often experience more than one type of pain The type of pain may be PowerPoint Presentation: Emotional and physical suffering, sleep disturbance (with negative impact on mood and mobilisation) CVS (such as tachycardia, Syst and Pulm htn ) intra ventr haemorrhage Increased oxygen consumption RS - atelectasis, retention of secretions and pneumonia Impaired bowel movement or PONV Short term negative effects of acute pain PowerPoint Presentation: Long term negative effects Severe acute pain is a risk factor for the development of chronic pain There is a risk of behavioural changes in children for a prolonged period (up to 1 year) after surgical pain PowerPoint Presentation: Peripheral and spinal structures for pain transmission are present and functional between 1st and 2nd trimester. Nociceptors by 20-30 wks gestation. Cerebral cortex has a full complement of neurons by 20 weeks gestation Neurodevelopment of pain PowerPoint Presentation: Descending inhibitory pathways are not fully developed until mid-infancy. Opioid and other receptors widely distributed A subset of high-threshold mechanoreceptors (HTMRs) have widespread projections throughout dorsal horn laminae Newborns feel pain, hypersensitive to mechanical stimuli and mount stress response Nature Reviews Neuroscience 4 , 158 (March 2003) | doi:10.1038/nrn1070 Neurodevelopment of pain PowerPoint Presentation: Neurocircuit PowerPoint Presentation: Evaluate the environment and provide comfort measures (non-pharmacological) Consider medications if not relieved Pain Agitation Decreased resp effort (guarding) BP & HR increase/decrease Diaphoresis Palmar sweating Metabolic changes Increased Increased HR & RR with activity only No No No PAIN vs AGITATION Difficult to distinguish Agitation describes gross motor behavior and crying Pediatric vs. Adult: Pediatric vs. Adult Peds Adult Conus medullaris L3 T12-L2(L1) Dural Sac S3-5 S1 CSF Volume 4ml/kg 2ml/kg SC myelination Incomplete Complete by 12y Epidural fat Low/loose High Albumin/Alpha1-acid Glycoprotein Low normal PowerPoint Presentation: Remember In neonates and preemies the enzyme systems of drug metabolism are immature.

PowerPoint Presentation: In 16% analgesics were not ordered post–op. Narcotics ordered prn were not given 39% of the time Only 25% were pain free on the day of surgery. 40% had moderate to severe pain . 1983 Mather & Marker landmark study PowerPoint Presentation: Pain management has a humanitarian role Improves quality of life for the patient Reduces morbidity Medical and economic benefits - rapid recovery and discharge from hospital Postoperative Pain Management –Good Clinical Practice European Society of Regional Anaesthesia and Pain Therapy 2005 Benefits ABCs of Pain Management: ABCs of Pain Management Recommended by AHCPR*, USA and American Pain Society A- Ask and anicipate pain regularly. Assess pain systematically with appropriate pain assessment tools and techniques. B- Believe,involve the patient and family in their reports of pain C- Choose multimodal** and multidisciplinary pain control options appropriate for the patient, family and setting. D- Deliver interventions in a timely, logical, coordinated fashion in a calm environment and monitor . E- Empower patients and their families. Enable patients to control their course to the greatest extent possible.

Nothing calms a child more than a confident parent Assessing pain QUESTT (Wong et al, 1999 ) PowerPoint Presentation: Use their language (sore, ouch, hurt) Be developmentally appropriate Consider using dolls/toys as a medium Consider other issues Non-verbal children are very vulnerable to having their pain under estimated ABCs of……. PowerPoint Presentation: Should begin during PAE,continue with the intraop management. Optimising analgesia Administer analgesia Utilise other comfort measures Review within short period i.e. at expected peak effect of drug Don’t assume the analgesia has worked Take action if analgesia is ineffective Document findings clearly for others The strategy for pain management PowerPoint Presentation:
Attack all 4 phases of nociception. NSAIDs can decrease inflammatory response (transduction);
blockade inhibits signals from reaching the CNS (transmission); Opiates enhance central inhibitory input at spinal cord (modulation); Thorough pre- and postop teaching can prevent anxiety (perception). The strategy .........
PowerPoint Presentation: A balanced, or multi-modal technique of combination of two or more drugs from the following groups is logical: LA Paracetamol , NSAIDS Opioids NMDA anatgonists (low dose ketamine) Sympathetic agonists (clonidine) For parenteral opiods -mandatory to also prescribe anti-emetics and naloxone The strategy ......... PowerPoint Presentation: Self-report measures are “gold standard,” require cognitive and language development 2 yr children report the presence and location of pain, but no cognitive skills 3 yr-can use a simple 3-level pain intensity “no pain,” “a little pain,” or “a lot of pain.” 4 yr-can usually manage 4- or 5-item scales >5yr-ability to rate pain affect (emotional) emerges 8 yr -rate the quality of pain* *McGrath PA, Gillespie J.

To use PCA, the child must understand the relationships between a stimulus (pain), a response (pushing the button), and a delayed result (pain relief).

PowerPoint Presentation: Local measures Dressing perfusion by applying dilute local anaesthetic onto a foam layer applied to skin graft donor sites is also simple, very effective and safe provided the maximum dosage limits are strictly adhered to. These sites can otherwise be extremely distressing to the child for a period up to 48 h PowerPoint Presentation: orally and repeated in neonates.
