However, there are very few studies that have addressed iatrogenic pain related to the application of routine procedures at the ED in adults” Ballesteros-Peña et al (2017).

Abstract:

However, there are very few studies that have addressed iatrogenic pain related to the application of routine procedures at the ED in adults.
