IM L-Asp

  • Posted by Janie Salinas-Avila on June 21, 2019 at 4:30 pm

    Hi! Everyone,

    For those who still have protocols with IM
    L-Asparaginase, what are you using to help diminish pain? EMLA, Freeze Spray, 2 nurses injecting at same time if more than one injection. Any other ideas or recommendations?

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    We use EMLA, Multi nurse inject at same time and offer heat or ice after injection- most kids pick to try a heat pack and find that helps post injection.  We have the instant heat packs/heel warmers
