Abstract

Control of pain in the pediatric intensive care unit has become increasingly important to intensivists. Improved understanding of the pharmacology of analgesics and the development of new techniques for analgesic administration have greatly enhanced the ability of intensivists to successfully manage patients in pain. The appropriate selection, use, and techniques for administration of analgesics in the treatment of pain in pediatric patients are discussed.
