State-of-the-art pain management specifically for neonatal nurses
The short- and long-term consequences of pain in neonates can be significant and debilitating, and, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics Committee on Fetus and Newborn, should be a strong focus of prevention. This is the first clinical handbook written specifically for neonatal nurses to address pain management in the vulnerable neonatal population. It provides holistic information on all that is currently known about pain management within this burgeoning area of research, addressing techniques of pain assessment, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic pain management techniques, and the family's role in neonatal pain management.
The book delivers critical information on proven and safe therapies designed for use with common minor yet painful procedures. It presents strategies for routinely assessing pain, minimizing the number of painful procedures performed, effectively using pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic therapies for the prevention of pain in routine procedures, and eliminating pain associated with surgery and other major procedures. A useful "Clinical Application" feature describing how to administer each pain management techniques is integrated throughout the text, along with "Nursing Consideration Highlights." Also included is a specific chapter discussing the important topic of withdrawal pain in Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. Additionally, the book provides lists of dosages, side affects, and other relevant information and includes developmental considerations for various pain management techniques.
