Age-appropriate pain assessment and management is vital in the care of children with acute pain. Assessment should happen regularly and should be documented clearly; pain should be treated and routinely reassessed. There are both short- and long-term consequences if pain is poorly treated in the acute and postoperative setting. The most effective analgesia plans are multimodal. This chapter focuses on systemic treatments of pain in the acute setting.
