Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

We will identify and evaluate all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) and quasi-randomized trials comparing the use of INF with any alternative analgesic interventions in children with acute pain, with respect to pain relief and the incidence of adverse events.
