Abstract:
Session presented on Saturday, July 26, 2014: Purpose: To identify effective non-pharmacological interventions in the literature regarding Heel Stick Pain prevention and treatment in preterm neonates. Methods: A literature search from 2007 to 2012 was conducted using MedLine, CINAHL, and the Cochrane Library databases, and was complemented by a search of known articles. Two independent reviewers extracted data and assessed methodological quality according to pre-defined criteria. Results: We identified 14 randomized controlled studies that pertained to non-pharmacological pain management methods. The selected interventions were "non-nutritive sucking", "sucrose", "glucose", "sensorial saturation", "facilitated tucking", "kangaroo care", "sensorial saturation", "breast milk" and "incubator care (inclined, nested, and prone)". Some of the non-pharmacological interventions reduced changes in pulse rate, respiration and oxygen saturation, motor activity, and clinical excitation states during painful intervention. Conclusion: Evidence supported "non-nutritive sucking", "sucrose", "glucose", "sensorial saturation", "facilitated tucking" and "kangaroo care" for their pain-alleviating effects on neonates. However, unambiguous evidence of their effects remains to be presented. Further research must use validated pain assessment instruments for the evaluation of the pain-alleviating effect of non-pharmacological interventions.
