Persistent pain may accompany the disease in children from the moment they are born. To determine the pain level, the physician should observe movements of the limbs of the child, expression of her face and voice.
There are special criteria that allow you to determine the level of pain in newborns, infants and children who can not yet describe their feelings. If according to the specified criteria the presence of persistent pain is determined, the appropriate anesthetic agents should be prescribed to the child.
One of these drugs is "Oramorff" with the active ingredient morphine. The indicated medicinal product is prescribed according to the scheme: every four hours.
Therefore, the assertion that children do not appoint morphine is a myth.
