Management of Acute Pain in Pediatric Patients with Sickle Cell Disease (Vaso-Occlusive Episodes) Disclaimer Statement: Hospital clinical pathways are designed to assist clinicians by providing an analytical framework for the diagnosis and treatment of specific medical problems. They may be used for patient education and to assist in planning future care. They are not intended to replace a physician's judgment or to establish a protocol for all patients with a particular condition. The ultimate decision regarding the care of any patient should be made in respect to the individual circumstances presented by the patient. Any specific medications and dosing must always be reviewed carefully for each patient in view of any drug allergy or adverse reactions. This document was based on available research and clinical experience at time of its compilation. The following protocol is a regional guideline, and may be adopted by individual institutions as needed. cpg .pain updated 03/2009 BACKGROUND ▫ Vaso-occlusive pain episodes (VOE) are the hallmark complication of sickle cell disease. ▫ They can be precipitated by exposure to cold, stress, infection, and dehydration. ▫ Maybe ‘rebound' after incomplete resolution of previous VOE episode. ▫ Most VOE symptoms can be managed at home with oral medications. ▫ More severe pain requires management in a dedicated Day Hospital, if available or Emergency Room evaluation with possible hospital admission for parenteral opioids, ▫ Goal of VOE treatment is to minimize pain and to prevent complications, (acute chest syndrome). APPROPRIATE HOME MANAGEMENT ▫Appropriate home care of the child with sickle cell disease is crucial to optimize best health outcomes for the patient. ▫ Pain management begins with avoidance of precipitating factors, importantly, keeping the patient warm, well, hydrated and free from stress ▫ Vasoocclusive pain occurs very frequently in SCD and must be anticipated. The family of a child with SCD should have, at all times, a sickle cell care plan that details how to manage a painful crisis – including which medicines and what doses to use. The patient must have an adequate supply of pain medications in the house at all times and must know how to ask for a refill before the bottle is finished. ▫ Management of an acute painful episode must include adequate oral pain medicines prior to ever giving parenteral narcotics ▫ If the child has not received adequate oral medications there must be a trial of oral medicines prior to parenteral narcotics being given. PEDIATRIC EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT (ED) EVALUATION: PATIENTS WITH SICKLE CELL DISEASE AND PAIN SHOULD BE ASSIGNED LEVEL 2 TRIAGE CRITERIA, AS DEFINED BY THE EMERGENCY SEVERITY INDEX (ESI CRITERIA). ▫Rapid triage: immediately on presentation to ED clinic. ▫Age appropriate pain assessment at triage and again before and after each intervention. cpg .pain updated 03/2009 ▫Immediate evaluation with brief history and physical: VS, oximetry, pallor, hydration status, cardio-pulmonary status, spleen size, evidence of infection, medication history: character, nature, location, duration severity of pain. ▫Assessment of medication allergies. ▫Complete a brief, initial psychosocial evaluation. ▫Give pain medication ASAP. (See pain management algorithm)) Goal is first dose of pain medication within 30 minutes of arrival to ED. Can complete H&P when patient's pain is better controlled. ▫ If patient is ≥ 6 years of age and has received opioids at home, Actiq (transmucosal Fentanyl) can be provided at a dose of 200 mcg every 30 minutes until IV is placed or other pain management is instituted. ▫Pain medication as per chart below. ▫Oral medications if has not previously received any. ▫Opioid bolus and subsequent doses as recommended below. ▫Anti-inflammatory medication when necessary/appropriate. (See Algorithm) IV fluids Consider bolus only if dehydrated 1.25 maintenance (IV + PO), to be modified based on history of fluid intolerance and signs of dehydration. If concerned for the possibility of an acute chest syndrome (ACS) developing, limit volume to 2/3-3/4 maintenance, to avoid fluid overload. Laboratory tests and possible imaging studies: ▫Complete blood count with differential and reticulocyte count ▫Blood culture if febrile ▫CXR- PA and lateral – for patients with chest pain, hypoxia, respiratory symptoms- but not as a routine. ▫Additional studies based on history, PE, and clinical presentation ▫SAO2 and CVR monitors as necessary ACUTE PAIN MANAGEMENT IN THE ED Ensure adequate oral pain medication prior to parenteral therapy (Oral or IV therapy must be determined by pain score) Start with PO Opioids if pain not > 5/10 or equivalent, on other pain scale or faces measure See treatment algorithm below for details cpg .pain updated 03/2009 MEPERIDINE (DEMEROL) SHOULD NOT BE USED IN SICKLE CELL PATIENTS BECAUSE OF THE INCREASED RISK OF SEIZURES. Disposition Consider discharge home from ED if pain is captured with minimal number of doses (≤ 2) of IV opioids and then controlled with po medication. – see algorithm Consider admission if patient requires multiple boluses of IV opioids without good pain control, or if patient is febrile, or if patient has respiratory symptoms. Start PCA as soon as apparent that patient will not be adequately controlled with oral or bolus pain medicines. INPATIENT MANAGEMENT Medications Continue home medications including penicillin and folic acid when applicable ○ Continue Hydroxyurea if labs are stable (ANC>1500) Opioids ○ Continuous opioid infusion via patient Controlled Analgesia See Pediatric PCA policy of your own institution for guidelines. PCA may not be appropriate for patients < 7 year of age. Most often these patients should be placed on basal rate only. Parent or Nurse controlled PCA should NOT be used. This can result in excessive sedation. ○ Definitions PCA: A technique whereby the patient self- administers opioid medications using a preprogrammed infusion pump. A method of patient-controlled delivery of an opioid which maintains optimal analgesia while minimizing sedation. Bolus dose: a larger dose of opioid given as an initial dose, for persistent or increased pain, before a procedure with an increase in opioid requirement. The goal of a bolus dose is to quickly bring the patient to a therapeutic analgesic blood concentration. PCA dose: Dose of opioid administered when patient activates pump during a "drug available" interval. Lockout interval: Period during which PCA cannot be activated; the number minutes allowed between PCA doses. Basal dose: Low dose continuous infusion of opioid used to maintain constant "background" level of analgesia. One hour limit: Predetermined maximum drug amount that can be delivered during any one hour period. cpg .pain updated 03/2009 ○ SEE INSTITUTIONAL PEDIATRIC PCA POLICY FOR INDIVIDUAL DOSING. (mg/kg/hour) PCA dose (mg/kg) Lockout period (min) Bolus dose (mg/kg) Use lower dose for opioid naïve patients and higher dose for opioid experienced patients 1 hour limit = basal rate + (PCA dose x # of PCA doses per hour) Select patients may have specific opioid dosing guidelines, refer to patient history PCA teaching sheet should be available for reference for anyone not versed in its use. Patients on PCA need frequent assessment regarding pain intensity and sedation level per individual hospital's policy. Dosing adjustment may be necessary: If patient has increased or persistent pain and is using PCA dosing > 3x/hour consider additional bolus of 0.05 mg/kg/dose morphine or 0.008 mg/kg/dose hydromorphone and increase basal dose by 10-20%. Re-evaluate q 1 hour until pain is captured and then q 4-6 hours while on PCA. Every 12-24 hours calculate the total amount of medication given through basal rate vs. total amount of medication given by bolus+ PCA. Adjust the basal rate appropriately so that the PCA and bolus dosing is < 1/3 the total mg received per day. If pain is well controlled and patient is pushing PCA < 3x/hour consider decreasing basal rate by 10-20%, every 12-24 hours as tolerated. If patient on basal rate is over sedated decrease basal rate by 10-20% For somnolence of respiratory depression stop the infusion, stimulate patient, and apply oxygen. Consider naloxone. Switching from IV to PO analgesics Patients should be changed from IV to PO when pain is well controlled on a total IV Morphine dose (basal+PCA+bolus) of approximately 0.025mg/kg/hr (Hydromorphone dose 0.003mg/kg/hr). PO regimen should include a long acting opioid (replaces basal rate) and a short acting opioid (replaces PCA) Give initial dose of oral medication, then discontinue IV medication 1 hour after. For patients who are difficult to transition to po pain medication consider starting long acting opioid, stopping basal rate of PCA, and continuing PCA dose for 12-24 hours. This regimen can provide the patient with a greater sense of control. If pain is well controlled after 12-24 hours, d/c PCA dose and give po short acting opioids as needed for breakthrough pain Calculations: Calculate total mg of parenteral opioid given in previous 24 hours. Use table to convert 24-hour parenteral dose to oral equivalent dose. cpg .pain updated 03/2009 Divide 24-hour daily oral dose into appropriate dose per time interval. If using a long acting po opioid be sure to include a short acting opioid breakthrough pain. When switching from IV to PO opioid , dose reductions should be considered if the patient has stable controlled pain. Effective management may be achieved at 50% of the calculated equianagesic dose because there is not complete cross-tolerance among these drugs.
