Neonates, pain management


Research based evidence supports non-pharmacological techniques for pain management in neonates. Hospitalized neonates undergo multiple painful procedures, and poorly treated pain leads to negative effects in neonates. Pharmacological techniques have many adverse effects. The benefits of non-pharmacological techniques include fewer adverse effects, ease of implementation, and less cost. The purpose of this study is to determine the most effective non-pharmacological technique for reducing procedural pain in neonates.
