Excerpt from Paramedic Recert EMS Care | 23-MCIT-F3-4133 | Evidence Based Guidelines

There were a total of 276,925 EMS records that satisfied the inclusion criteria in the NEMSIS database. Among these records, pain was identified as a primary or associated symptom for approximately 29.5% of the patients. Interestingly, the youngest children, aged between 0 and 3 years, were found to have the lowest documentation of pain as a symptom, with only 14.6% of them having it recorded. Furthermore, the data revealed that only 15.6% of all activations documented the administration of prehospital pain medications. When comparing different age groups, it was observed that children below 15 years of age received pain medication approximately 14.8% of the time . In contrast, adults aged 15 years and above received pain medication slightly more frequently, at a rate of 15.6%. In terms of specific medications administered, morphine and fentanyl were found to be the most commonly used across all age groups.
