  Purpose

This study will examine the safety and effectiveness of sugar water to relieve pain in newborn infants during painful blood tests and injections. Infants of diabetic mothers who receive repeated blood tests will be compared to infants of healthy mothers who receive routine painful procedures.

We believe that administration of sucrose analgesia for every painful cutaneous procedure performed after delivery will result in less pain during the newborn infant screening test.

Further study details as provided by The Hospital for Sick Children:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • - Infant pain score during the newborn screening test, assessed by the Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP), or individual parameters of PIPP (facial grimace, heart rate, oxygen saturation)

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • (effectiveness):
  • - Effectiveness of sucrose for repeated heel lances
  • - Effectiveness of sucrose in decreasing anticipatory pain responses during venipuncture
  • - Effectiveness of sucrose in decreasing pain response during Vitamin K injection
  • - Determination of relationship between painful procedures and infant response during routine care procedures
  • (safety):
  • - Incidence of vomiting during administration of sucrose
  • - Oxygen saturation during administration of sucrose
  • - Serum Glucose concentrations in infants of diabetic mothers
