Modified sensory stimulation using breastmilk for reducing pain intensity in neonates in Indonesia: A randomized controlled trial.



Several studies have shown that oral sucrose reduces pain in newborns. However, sucrose has no efficacy in eliminating pain and long-term effects remain unclear. Breast milk may be useful as an alternative, safe sweet solution. Sensorial saturation (SS) is a multisensory analgesic non-pharmacological treatment, which includes touch and sounds as distractors. This study aimed to compare the analgesic effects of SS with sucrose (SSS), SS with breast milk (SSB), and oral sucrose alone (S24%) in neonates undergoing venipuncture.
