Pain Relief: Comfort Kit (Child) [English] Permalink Public

It is understood that kids have pain, especially while in the hospital. When kids are actively engaged in a fun activity, their pain and anxiety goes down. Pain might be due to procedures or treatments, or from their illness or injury. How children cope with pain is different for each of them. Some kids will not talk about their pain, while others will cry and yell. This page describes ways parents can help their child reduce pain using play and imagination. These methods will work in the hospital or at home. These strategies for easing pain work well with pain medication your child may need. Talk to your child's nurse, child life specialist, or social worker for more ideas. The toys in the following list may help. Children are encouraged to make choices about what may work best for them to reduce pain. (English)

Ear Infection - Otitis Media (Child) [English] Permalink Public

The middle ear is the space behind the eardrum. It can become infected by bacteria or viruses. An infection of the middle ear is also called otitis media (say: oh-TIE-tis MEE-dee-uh). The eustachian (say: you-STAY-shun) tube connects the middle ear to the back of the throat, and helps vent and drain the middle ear. An ear infection happens when mucus or swollen tissues from a cold block the eustachian tube. When the tube is blocked, the middle ear is not ventilated well and the air pressure changes can cause pain. This is much like the ear pain that happens on take-off or landing in an airplane. Sometimes the blockage does not let the normal ear fluid drain properly. This fluid can become infected and build up in the middle ear. This puts pressure on the eardrum and makes it bulge, which causes pain. Audio available. (English)

Orchidopexy: Surgery for Undescended Testicles (Child, Male) [English] Permalink Public

Normally before a baby boy is born, the testicles move into the scrotum (the sac that holds the testicles). Sometimes, though, one or both testicles stay in the body cavity instead of moving into the scrotum. This is called undescended testicles​ or cryptorchidism, which means "hidden testicle." An orchidopexy is an operation to lower the testicles into the scrotum. (English)
