Study of the effects of intranasal sufentanil on patients presenting to the emergency department with acute post-traumatic pain.


In this study, patients presenting to the emergency department with post-traumatic pain of 7 or more on the visual analog pain scale, since less than 24 hours, in the limbs, spine or thorax are randomized in a control arm or an interventional arm.

The patients in the control arm will receive the institution's classical analgetic protocol level 1 and 3, the patients in the intervention arm are given classical level 1 medication as well as intranasal Sufentanil.

Pain is then measured using the Visual Analogue Pail Scale at 15-20 minutes and at 60 minutes. At both these time points, adverse effects and vitals are also assessed.
