  • Neonatal Pain

    2. 2. Definition <ul><li>An unpleasant sensory or emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage. </li></ul><ul><li>The interpretation of Pain is subjective. </li></ul><ul><li>International association for the study of pain </li></ul><ul><li>“ IASP” </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad
    3. 3. Outdated professional attitudes <ul><li>Neonates do not feel pain ( immaturity, incomplete myelinization) </li></ul><ul><li>Infants are less sensitive to pain than adults </li></ul><ul><li>Neonates have no memory of pain </li></ul><ul><li>Children will tell you when they are having pain </li></ul><ul><li>If a child can be distracted, he is not in pain </li></ul><ul><li>Neonates are not able to tolerate the effects of analgesics </li></ul><ul><li>Narcotics can lead to addiction in children </li></ul><ul><li>Infants become accustomed to pain </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad
    4. 4. The Fact <ul><li>Before the middle 1970’s, it was thought that neonates were incapable of experiencing pain due to the immaturity of the nervous system and incomplete myelinization, however since up to 80% of fibers responsible for transmitting pain remain unmyelinated in the adult. </li></ul><ul><li>it is conceivable that the potential for neonates to perceive pain exists </li></ul>[email_address]
    5. 5. [email_address]
    6. 6. The Fact <ul><li>By late gestation, the fetus has developed the anatomic, neurophysiologic, and hormonal components to perceive pain . </li></ul><ul><li>Preterm and term infants demonstrate similar or even exaggerated physiological and hormonal responses to pain compared with those observed in older children and adults . </li></ul><ul><li>Neonates who were exposed to painful stimuli, between post conceptual weeks 28 – 32 showed different behavioral and physiological responses to pain compared with neonates of similar post conceptual age who had not had such experiences </li></ul>[email_address]

    10. 10. Physiologic Development <ul><li>Lower pain threshold in neonatal rats. </li></ul><ul><li>Neurotransmitter receptors are up-regulated in the neonatal period. </li></ul><ul><li>Neonatal pain processing: Early development of the excitatory mechanisms & later development of inhibition . </li></ul><ul><li>Normal development of the pain system occurs in the absence of noxious stimuli. </li></ul>: [email_address]
    11. 11. The Effects of Pain [email_address] Kareem Awad
    12. 12. Immediate Effects <ul><li>Reduced TV and VC in the lungs . </li></ul><ul><li>Increased demands in the CVS . </li></ul><ul><li>Hypermetabolism resulting in neuroendocrine balances, increased oxygen consumption, hypoxemia, myocardial ischemia . </li></ul><ul><li>Mobilization of endocrine and metabolic resources resulting in changes in blood pressure ( IVH ), changes in skin color and temperature . </li></ul><ul><li>Prolonged catabolic reactions as well as circulatory and metabolic complications after surgery when anesthetic agents were not administered or were inadequate </li></ul>[email_address]
    13. 13. Long Term Effects of Untreated Pain <ul><li>Newly studied area:until recently, babies were not thought to “remember” pain </li></ul><ul><li>Some experts believe that untreated pain in the newborn period forces abnormal pathways to form in the brain </li></ul><ul><li>This aberrant brain activity results in impaired social/cognitive skills and specific patterns of self- destructive behavior </li></ul><ul><li>Studied MRI’s of newborns: reactions to pain transferred into similar electrical reactions to any kind of stressful situation. </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad

    32. 32. [email_address] <ul><li>The goals of pain management are to minimize the pain experience and its physiological cost, and to maximize the newborn’s capacity to cope with and recover from painful experience while maintaining the risk/benefit ratio for treatment </li></ul>
    33. 33. Non Pharmacological Treatment <ul><li>A growing interest has recently been developing in non pharamacological treatment because: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Painful procedures are extremely frequent in preterm , sick neonates. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Concerns exists regarding potential adverse effects of pharmacological treatment </li></ul></ul><ul><li>This type of treatment can reduce pain by two ways: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Indirectly: reduce the total amont of noxious stimuli . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Directly by : </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>blocking nociceptive transduction or transmission </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>activation of descending inhibitory pathways </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>activation of attention and arousal systems that modulate pain </li></ul></ul></ul>[email_address]

    54. 54. Breast feeding <ul><li>Breast feeding during a painful procedures has been found to be a potent analgesic. </li></ul><ul><li>In one study, neonates who were held and breast fed by their mothers during heel lance, had a reduction in crying of 91% and grimacing of 84% as compared to infants who have been swaddled in their bassinets </li></ul><ul><li>Some studies show that if breast feeding is not continued during the procedure, it has no analgesic effect. </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad
    55. 55. Breast milk <ul><li>Most of the studies found that The available evidence does not support supplemental breast milk as the sole intervention to alleviate procedural pain . </li></ul><ul><li>Blass and colleagues , found that although colostrum did not reduce crying and grimacing relative to control group who received sterile water, it did prevent the increase in HR. </li></ul><ul><li>Supplemental breast milk did not compare favorably to concentrated glucose and sucrose, as reflected by higher increases in HR and duration of crying in breast milk group. </li></ul>[email_address]
    56. 56. Music therapy “ MT ” <ul><li>Music defined as an intentional auditory stimulus with organized elements including melody, rhythm, harmony, timbre, form and style. </li></ul><ul><li>By contrast, environmental sounds that exist with out controls for volume or cause/effect relations are perceived as noise . </li></ul><ul><li>Although methodological limitations exist, results of published studies suggest that music may be useful in reducing procedural pain. </li></ul><ul><li>It should be not provided for longer than 15min per intervention due to the risk of sensory overload </li></ul>[email_address]

    75. 75. ETT insertion <ul><li>Many variations in clinical approach have been noted. </li></ul><ul><li>The superior efficacy of any one technique is not supported by current evidence . </li></ul><ul><li>Tracheal intubation without the use of analgesia or sedation, should be performed only for resuscitation in the DR or for other life threatening situations associated with unavailable IV access . </li></ul>[email_address]
    76. 76. ETT insertion <ul><li>Use combination of atropine sulphate and ketamine hydrochloride . </li></ul><ul><li>Use combination of atropine, thiopental sodium, succinylcholine chloride . </li></ul><ul><li>Use combination of atropine, morphine, or fentanyl and non depolarizing muscle relaxant “ e.g. pancuronium”. </li></ul><ul><li>Consider using a topical lidocaine spray if available. </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad
    77. 77. ETT suction <ul><li>Use a pacifier with sucrose . </li></ul><ul><li>Use swaddling containment, facilitated tucking . </li></ul><ul><li>Consider opoid dose (s) , if IV access is available. </li></ul>[email_address]

    80. 80. Circumcision <ul><li>Use an appropriate clamp “ Mogen clamp preffered over Gomco” </li></ul><ul><li>Apply EMLA to the proposed site. </li></ul><ul><li>Place a dorsal penile nerve block, ring block, or caudal block , using plain or buffered lidocaine . </li></ul><ul><li>Use a pacifier with sucrose . </li></ul><ul><li>Consider acetaminophen for postoperative pain . </li></ul>[email_address]
    81. 81. Ongoing analgesia for routine NICU care and procedures <ul><li>Use a pacifier with sucrose . </li></ul><ul><li>Use swaddling containment, facilitated tucking . </li></ul><ul><li>Low dose continuous infusion of morphine or fentanyl . If patient is ventilated. </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad
    82. 82. Future perspectives. <ul><li>Use of regional analgesia technique </li></ul><ul><li>Sequential rotation of analgesics </li></ul><ul><li>Bolus Vs continuous infusion opoids </li></ul><ul><li>Use of new opoids ( remifentanil) </li></ul><ul><li>Addition of ultra low doses of opoid antagonists ( naloxone ) </li></ul><ul><li>Use of non competitive NMDA antagonists . </li></ul>[email_address]
    83. 83. Important to know <ul><li>Pain in newborn is often unrecognized and undertreated. Neonates do feel pain, and analgesia should be prescribed when indicated during their medical care . </li></ul><ul><li>If a procedure is painful in adults, it should consider painful in newborn even in preterm. </li></ul><ul><li>Compared with older age groups, newborns may experience a greater sensitivity to pain and are more susceptible to long term effects of pain </li></ul><ul><li>Adequate treatment of pain, may be associated with decreased clinical complications, and decreased mortality </li></ul><ul><li>The proper use of environmental, behavioral, and pharmacological interventions can prevent , reduce or eliminate neonatal pain in many clinical situations. </li></ul><ul><li>Sedation does not provide pain relef and may mask the neonate’s response to pain. </li></ul><ul><li>Health care professionals have the responsibility for assessment , prevention and management of pain in neonates . </li></ul><ul><li>Clinical units providing health care to newborns, should develop written guidelines and protocols for the management of neonatal pain </li></ul>[email_address] Kareem Awad
