AbstractA disposable patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) device was evaluated in 20 children after major abdominal, urological and orthopaedic surgery. All patients were given a high dependency level of nursing care in general wards. Efficacy (as assessed by hourly pain scores) was comparable to that achieved in a matched control group of 20 children who used the Graseby PCA system. Safety was confirmed by monitoring arterial oxygen saturation, sedation scores and ventilatory frequency. Morphine consumption was similar with the two techniques, but varied widely between patients. The disposable device has a complementary role to play in the provision of a comprehensive pain relief service for children.
