Opioid-based medications are often the first medications selected for pain control in young patients; however opioids possess several unwanted side effects such as respiratory depression, nausea, vomiting and allergic reactions. Administration of medications that support a multimodal approach to pain management is imperative. It is a longstanding belief that pediatric pain is significantly undertreated due to providers’ hesitance to use non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Baley et al.1 cite that anesthesia providers have been challenged to eliminate the under treatment of pain in the pediatric population. The pediatric population is at high risk for inadequate pain management and providers should strongly consider adjunct medications in the treatment of pain.
