Long term consequences are often not considered, yet they are very important. I recommend this book to anyone working with neonates and feel it should be included with other reference materials. One person found this helpful.

Crying and gross motor movements are also common responses to pain in infants and considered to be sensitive indicators of pain

Neonates and infants require the same three categories of analgesic drugs as older children

Neonates and infants require the same three categories of analgesic drugs as older children. However, the difference in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics among neonates, preterm infants, and full-term infants warrants special dosing considerations for infants and close monitoring when they receive opioids. The only exception are neonates in whom rigorous volume restriction is essential (that is, neonates with renal disease leading to oliguria or anuria, or neonates in congestive heart failure).

The COMFORT Behavior Scale is used to monitor excess sedation in children from birth to adolescence, intubated ventilated or unconscious children in intensive care units, and in the postoperative setting. 12 It assesses prolonged acute pain, discomfort, and distress.

Little attention has in the past been given to physiological or pathological responses of the infant to stimuli that produce pain in older individuals. All that has changed. Drs. Anand and McGrath have joined in writing and editing this collection of chapters on many aspects of nociception and the responses within the central nervous system, behavioral responses, endocrine, cardiovascular and immune functions. The question of the benefits of some pain to communicate the presence of a potentially dangerous event is the subject of a thoughtful discussion in Chapter 4. Nociception may trigger appropriate physiological responses. However, severe responses may in themselves be deleterious as documented by the improved outlook when they are blocked during surgery. The principles and pharmacotherapy with systemic analgesic drugs (especially opioids) is given extensive and informative consideration in Chapters 5 and 6. Regional and topical anesthesia in newborn infants is thoroughly covered in Chapter 7. A welcome addition to the discussions in first chapters of the book, is the report of experienced neonatal nurses on individualized supportive care to reduce pain and stress in neonatal intensive care units. They provide a critical review of studies of behaviors of preterm and sick infants, which they augment with a description of current practices. The remaining topics that serve to broaden the perspective of those caring for infants are indicated by the chapter titles: "Moral and ethical issues in clinical practice", "Research design and research ethics", "Social and legal issues", and finally, "Future directions" by the editors.
