Pain management in pediatric patients with sickle cell anemia

Daniel watson

Opioids, intravenous fluids, regional anaesthesia, ketamine infusions, and Non-steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are frequently used by paediatric Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) children to treat pain during an acute vaso-occlusive episode. Acupuncture has long been researched as a successful means of pain treatment, despite the fact that the use of it in paediatric patients with SCD during an
acute vaso-occlusive pain episode is notably understudied. The usefulness of acupuncture as a pain relief method for young SCD patients who are suffering from acute pain is reviewed in this article based on recent research.
