This chapter presents a 1994 commentary about pain control for infants. It considers a study that compared the use of conventional anesthesia and a new regimen (conventional anesthesia plus intravenous fentanyl — an analgesic drug) for preterm infants undergoing ligation of a patent ductus. The results of the study focused public attention on the need to question long-accepted anesthetic practices for small neonates.
