Abstract: Pediatric Pain Management In The Emergency Department
Analgesia is a critical part of the management of pediatric patients in the emergency department. Pain is multifactorial and is influenced by its etiology as well as the patient’s age, temperament, beliefs, and past experiences. Suboptimal treatment of pain can have deleterious effects in the short term, and it can also affect a patient’s reaction to future painful experiences and development. Tools exist to reliably quantify a patient’s pain level regardless of age or developmental stage. Both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic methods can be effective in the management of pediatric pain. Emergency clinicians must remain vigilant in the recognition and treatment of pediatric pain, as patients’ developmental level may limit their ability to adequately express their pain experience. This review discusses several pain scales that are suitable for pediatric patients (including the Faces Pain Scale, the OucherTM, and the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale) and discusses pediatric pain management using nonpharmacologic methods, topical, local, and regional anesthesia, and systemic agents.
Abstract: Diagnosis And Management Of Motor Vehicle Trauma In Children: An Evidence-Based Review
Injuries from motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of mortality in children aged 5 years and older in the United States. This review discusses common injuries in children after motor vehicle trauma and examines the evidence regarding the evaluation and treatment of pediatric patients involved in motor vehicle crashes. Both prehospital and emergency department care are discussed along with a differential diagnosis of the injuries most commonly seen in motor vehicle crashes. The various options for imaging modalities are also discussed in this review. A critical appraisal of the existing guidelines for the management of motor vehicle trauma and for the use of appropriate child-safety restraints is presented. Emergency clinicians will be able to use the patient’s history and physical examination findings along with knowledge of common injuries to determine the most appropriate workup and treatment of pediatric patients who present with motor vehicle trauma.
Abstract: An Evidence-Based Approach To Electrical Injuries In Children
Electrical injuries, while uncommon, can be associated with significant morbidity and mortality. In children, the injuries tend to occur in the household; in adolescents, they are most often associated with misguided youthful exploration outside the home. Injuries in adults are primarily occupational and due to workplace accidents. Electrical injuries are categorized by their electrical source and can result from low-voltage, high-voltage, lightning strike, or electrical arc exposure. The injury can range from minor to life threatening, and they can cause multisystem complications. High-voltage electrical exposures usually cause severe burns, whereas victims of lightning strikes may have no obvious physical injury but may present in cardiopulmonary arrest. Strategies to prevent electrical injuries have been developed and should be discussed with families and healthcare providers to reduce the incidence of these injuries in children. This review highlights the current literature related to the evaluation and management of children with electrical injuries presenting to the emergency department.
Abstract: Pediatric Nerve Blocks: An Evidence-Based Approach
Successful injury management is often dependent upon optimal pain control. Many injuries do not require procedural sedation or systemic analgesia, and emergency clinicians have used peripheral nerve blocks for several decades for these injuries. Nerve blocks deliver anesthetic to the nerve that corresponds to the sensory innervation of the area where the wound or injury is located. In the pediatric setting, some nerve block modalities require modification to the approach and techniques commonly used in adult patients due to the age and weight of the child, the ability of the patient to cooperate, and the ability of the emergency clinician to observe pain response. Peripheral nerve blocks have a high rate of success for effective local anesthesia and a low rate of complications, making them an attractive option for analgesia in the management of some injuries. This evidence-based review summarizes the advantages and disadvantages of peripheral nerve blocks, reviews commonly used local anesthetics, describes the landmark technique for the most common nerve blocks used in pediatric emergency medicine, and presents literature on ultrasound-guided technology.
