Sucrose and non-nutritive sucking are thought to elevate pain thresholds via endogenous opioid pathways.

Based upon an identified need for trauma education resources, we sought to create a unique video that delivers high yield information on community trauma management and transport. This project was a collaborative effort with input from a diverse group of community emergency physicians and academic pediatric and adult trauma care providers and covers important commonalities and differences when caring for diverse patient populations. Of note, the video briefly references Ontario specific trauma services, however, the core content of the video is applicable to trauma care across Canada.

Studies done since the early 1990's have demonstrated that the administration of sucrose and non-nutritive sucking are effective non-pharmacological interventions for relief of procedural pain in neonates and infants and may help reduce pain in infants up to 12 months of age. Sucrose and non-nutritive sucking are thought to elevate pain thresholds via endogenous opioid pathways.
