Article
Management of pain in neonates has gained importance in the last two decades. We have just begun to understand the expression of pain by the neonates and we are still exploring pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic management strategies. This article reviews the pharmacological treatment of pain in ventilated neonates, the clinical and neuro-developm...

Heel prick blood sampling is a commonly performed and painful procedure in the newborn infant. Use of a topical local anaesthetic does not relieve this pain. A 4% w/w amethocaine gel (Ametop) reduces the pain of venepuncture in the newborn but has not been tried with heel pricks. To investigate the effect of topical amethocaine gel on the pain of h...

Topical amethocaine provides effective pain relief during venepuncture in children, and has been shown to have a local anaesthetic action in the newborn. To investigate the effect of topical amethocaine on the pain of venepuncture in the newborn. Randomised double blind placebo controlled trial. Forty newborn infants, gestation 27-41 weeks (median...

To explore the time of onset and duration of action of topical amethocaine gel in the newborn infant. A randomised double blind placebo controlled trial. Thirty six infants were studied after 30 minutes application and 36 after 60 minutes application. A total of 56 infants (gestation 27-42 weeks, weight 0. 79-4.1 kg) were studied in the first two w...

The epidermal barrier is well developed in term infants but defective in the immature infant with important clinical consequences. The development of the barrier shares similarities with production of pulmonary surfactant. Studies in the rat have shown that barrier maturation is accelerated by antenatal steroids, both structurally and functionally....

To assess the efficacy of amethocaine as a topical local anaesthetic in neonates. A randomised, double blind controlled trial compared 4% amethocaine gel (Ametop) with placebo in 60 healthy neonates (29 to 42 weeks of gestation) in the first week after birth. Either 1.5 g 4% w/w amethocaine (gel) or 1.5 g placebo gel were applied to the dorsum of o...

To investigate whether it would be safe to extend the currently recommended area of sampling to the whole heel in neonates. Eighty newborn infants were studied, weight range 0.56 to 4.34 kg, gestation 24 to 42 weeks. Ultrasound scanning was used to measure the shortest distance between the skin and the perichondrium of the calcaneum. The shortest d...
Article
Multiple birth rates have risen over the past decade and are expected to continue to rise with time. Multiple birth presents considerable risk to the infants involved. These risks have a significant effect in terms of immediate mortality, neonatal illness and also a more protracted impact on developmental outcome, especially in terms of congenital...
