Primary Outcome Measures:
  • clinical pain score [ Time Frame: within the first twelve hours after clinical stabilization, the PIPP will be done. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The tool that will be used is PIPP = Premature Infant Pain Profile. This avaliation begins prior to suctioning until 30 seconds after suctioning. Each infant will be avaliated 2 times (with sucrose and with placebo). The 2 avaliations in the same day.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: sucrose
0,5 ml/kg of sucrose administered 2 minutes prior the procedure
Drug: sucrose
oral sucrose solution, 24%, 0,5 ml/kg, 2 minutes before start the suctioning sterile water, 0,5 ml/kg, 2 minutes before start the suctioning
Other Name: sugar
Placebo Comparator: sterile water
0,5 ml/kg of sterile water administered 2 minutes prior the procedure
Drug: sucrose
oral sucrose solution, 24%, 0,5 ml/kg, 2 minutes before start the suctioning sterile water, 0,5 ml/kg, 2 minutes before start the suctioning
Other Name: sugar

Detailed Description:

Many infants admitted to neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) undergo repeated invasive procedures. Recent studies have shown that the oral sucrose administration to neonates is safe and effective for pain relief during heel stick and venipuncture.Most data suggest the investigation of the effect of sucrose in other painful procedures such as in ventilated newborns.
