    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

    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.
