Abstract

Children frequently present to the emergency department (ED) in pain. Most children present with acute pain; however, in disaster situations factors such as stress and dehydration may aggravate the situation. Children's pain may be further compounded as they often undergo painful procedures during diagnosis or treatment. This article reviews recent literature to examine appropriate pharmacological management of pediatric pain during minor procedures in the ED. A discussion of current practice and recommendations is offered for future management of children's pain and anxiety in the ED.
