Abstract

This article discusses the administration of intranasal diamorphine as an analgesia-in paediatric trauma care. The authors outline evidence for its use and discuss a recent multicentre safety study of an intranasal diamorphine product. In addition, they advise emergency department nurses on administering the analgesia, and offer guidelines for determining patient suitability and post-administration assessment.
