The UCSD burn unit pain management site is designed to assist the clinician in caring for burned infants and children. We will post guidelines and information in an attempt to educate residents and staff about current concepts. Pain managemment affects not only the psycologic state of the patient but the physiologic state as well. Parents may also find this site useful to educate themselves about options for their children, Please email Dr Greenberg with comments and suggestions.
These are just guidelines. Doses and medication regimens must be tailored to patient needs
