ABSTRACT

Inadequate postoperative pain management leads to a high rate of morbidity and mortality. In the current situation, adequate pain management in patients of paediatric age group upon whom urological procedures are performed is not standardised. The aim of this research was to determine the degree of successful postoperative pain management in children using the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). It was a two-year cross-sectional analysis. A total of 90 people were included in the study, with an average age of 8.7 years admitted for elective urological procedures. Patients were chosen from GMC Srinagar, GMC Jammu and ASCOMS Jammu. This research involved children aged five to twelve who were getting postoperative analgesics. They were all psychologically sound, attentive, and cooperative. Patients were chosen such that they did not have any malignant condition or debilitating pain or postoperative pain related to surgical wound sepsis. From the first postoperative day to the seventh postoperative day, postoperative pain was assessed by VAS and rated using Sriwatanakul's system. It was discovered that the differences in pain scores between the three institutes were statistically non-significant from the first postoperative day to the seventh postoperative day. Up until the third postoperative day, patients experienced moderate pain, minimal pain until the fifth postoperative day, and some pain until the seventh postoperative day. In these hospitals' paediatric surgery wards, new analgesics could not successfully manage postoperative suffering. To determine the degree of successful postoperative pain management in infants, a larger study with a large number of patients in various Bangladeshi centres should be conducted.
