Title:Assessing Infant Behaviors as Indicators of Established Acute Pain
Health care for infants has improved greatly during the last century due to research devoted to identifying and correcting problem areas. Considerable research has been conducted on the topic of infant pain and how to assess this problem; however, research regarding pain in infants undergoing a surgical procedure has often been overlooked. There is a need to investigate the use of a valid pain assessment tool to increase health care providers' knowledge for facilitating comfort measures of infants during a painful procedure such as circumcision. The purpose for this study was to facilitate a better understanding of comfort measures needed for infants during the surgical procedure of circumcision and to determine if these measures were successful. The purpose of this presentation is to share the knowledge gained from a new quantitative study and to increase awareness of infant pain behaviors and the comfort measures that relieve them.
