    Objective: Inadequate assessment of pain in premature infants is a persistent clinical problem. The objective of this research was to develop and validate a measure for assessing pain in premature infants that could be used by both clinicians and researchers.. Design: The Premature Infant Pain Profile (PIPP) was developed and validated using a prospective and retrospective design.   Pain is experienced by all preterm infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) as they are exposed to many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are necessary for their survival. 5 Studies across nations have reported wide variations in the number of painful procedures premature infants are exposed to (see Table 1).For example, a study in France reported that on average, infants .

The prevention of pain in neonates should be the goal of all caregivers, because repeated painful exposures have the potential for deleterious consequences.

Neonatal pain in relation to brain development. In the preterm population, altered brain development is evident in early infancy [38–40] and at school-age [41–45].Compared with term-born peers, preterm children show reduction in gray and white matter volumes in infancy, childhood and adolescence [14,42,43,46,47], as well as abnormalities in cortical thickness [46,48–53].

More accurate pain assessment tools will help in devising strategies to reduce pain in premature infants. The first steps will be to validate acute pain measures.

While prolonged pain is more challenging, applying these technologies during postoperative pain will lead to evaluation of indices for sustained pain.
