Neonates being nonverbal are unable to express their painleading to underestimation of their pain and hence insufficient pain relief. Pain may adversely affect neurodevelopment and cause permanent injuries to the growing brain. Various pain scales have been developed to measure neonatal pain objectively. These scales are based on changes in physiological responses and certain behavioural cues the infant displays on exposure to pain.
