Glucose for the management of procedural pain in neonates
Reason for withdrawal from publication A new author team has taken over this protocol and will be making substantive changes to it.
Sucrose for Neonatal Analgesia: Is There More to the Story?
Oral sucrose has been shown to reduce neonatal pain in studies that have measured pain by observational behavioral and physiological measures (JW
Physiological parameters after nonpharmacological analgesia in preterm infants: a randomized trial
TLDR
To compare the influence of three different nonpharmacological interventions on cortical activation, heart rate and peripheral oxygen saturation (SaO2) after heelstick in preterm infants, a large number of patients were diagnosed with preterm babies. Expand
Reducing pain from heel lances in neonates following education on oral sucrose
TLDR
Education was effective in the adoption of sucrose use, leading to a reduction in pain from heel lance-induced pain in neonates, and an 84 % increase in the use of Sucrose post-education (Phase 3), and most importantly, an 11.2 % reduction inPain scores from heel Lancing in Neonates. Expand
Implementing change in the neonatal unit: Part 1 – The evidence base
TLDR
The rationale for implementation of sucrose administration as a measure for pain relief for minor procedures in one neonatal unit in Northern Ireland is described. Expand
Analgosedation in neonates: do we still need additional tools after 30 years of clinical research?
TLDR
This review will focus on the limitations of the available assessment tools, newly emerging analgosedatives in neonates to illustrate how these compounds can be integrated into the changing concepts of neonatal care. Expand
Sucrose for procedural pain control in infants: should we change our practice?
TLDR
This image shows the neonatal Intensive Care Unit at the Azienda Ospedaliera University of Padova, Padova and the unit at the Policlinico Le Scotte, Siena, Italy, which is home to the world’s first neonatal intensive care unit for babies born with Down's syndrome. Expand
Oral Sucrose and “Facilitated Tucking” for Repeated Pain Relief in Preterms: A Randomized Controlled Trial
TLDR
Sucrose with and without FT had pain-relieving effects even in preterm infants of <32 weeks of gestation having repeated pain exposures, and these interventions remained effective during repeated heel sticks across time. Expand
PERCEPTION OF ABDOMINAL MASSAGE AS A TREATMENT OPTION FOR ABDOMINAL PAIN AMONG HEALTHCARE WORKERS IN NIGER DELTA
TLDR
This study showed that healthcare workers preferred orthodox treatment to abdominal massage in the management of abdominal pain, as reflected in their scale of preference despite its seeming lower cost in a poor resource environment. Expand
Cortical Pain Response of Newborn Infants to Venepuncture: A Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Analgesic Effects of Sucrose Versus Breastfeeding
TLDR
There was no difference in the cortical responses to pain during venepuncture in newborn infants who were administered sucrose versus those who were breastfed, and the maximum increase in hemoglobin concentration was persistent. Expand

In July 2007, 24 members of the Endocrinologic and Metabolic Drug Advisory Committee (EMDAC) and the Drug Safety and Risk Management Advisory Committee of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a joint meeting, and concluded that rosiglitazone was associated with an increased risk of myocardial ischemia.

Evoked potentials generated by noxious stimulation in the human infant brain
TLDR
The results provide the first direct evidence of specific noxious‐evoked neural activity in the infant brain and suggest that newborn infants are capable of the sensory‐discriminative aspects of pain experience. Expand
Framework for assessing governance of the health system in developing countries: gateway to good governance.
TLDR
A framework for assessing health system governance (HSG) at national and sub-national levels is presented and a positive aspect was the growing participation and consensus orientation among stakeholders, while weaknesses were identified in relation to strategic vision, accountability, transparency, effectiveness and efficiency and rule of law.

Stopping randomized trials early for benefit and estimation of treatment effects: systematic review and meta-regression analysis.
TLDR
Tuncated RCTs were associated with greater effect sizes than R CTs not stopped early and this difference was independent of the presence of statistical stopping rules and was greatest in smaller studies. Expand

EEG source imaging
TLDR
It is shown that modern EEG source imaging simultaneously details the temporal and spatial dimensions of brain activity, making it an important and affordable tool to study the properties of cerebral, neural networks in cognitive and clinical neurosciences. Expand
