Children vary greatly in their cognitive and emotional development, medical conditions, as well as to responses to pain and interventions.
Assessment and management of pain is an area that has received more attention in recent years. Without adequate relief during a painful procedure, children may experience a pain memory that could worsen the situation for subsequent procedures. This is especially valid for children with chronic diseases. There are alternative approaches, appropriately and attentively implemented, to prevent or relieve pain. Inhaled nitrous oxide/oxygen mixtures are fast acting and non-invasive.
In paediatrics, Linde Healthcare also offers medical helium/oxygen mixtures that may assist the flow of oxygen in the airway for patients with severely obstructed airways in conditions such as upper airway obstruction, asthma, bronchiolitis and croup.
