Do analgesic sweet solutions in neonates influence glycemia?

0

Sweet solutions are one of the most widely used nonpharmacologic analgesics used for newborns. They alleviate mild to moderate pain induced by painful procedures. They are used daily in neonatal intensive care units before a venepuncture or a heel stick, especially for a blood-sugar measurement” Walter-Nicolet et al (2017).

Abstract:

Sweet solutions are one of the most widely used nonpharmacologic analgesics used for newborns. They alleviate mild to moderate pain induced by painful procedures. They are used daily in neonatal intensive care units before a venepuncture or a heel stick, especially for a blood-sugar measurement. It is agreed that analgesic sweet solutions do not modify glycemia results. This nevertheless remains a recurrent question that the present review attempts to answer.
