  Purpose
This study will test which type of pain medication is best for the management of pain in newborn preterm and full-term infants having a deep intravenous cannula inserted. It will compare the effectiveness of intravenous morphine alone, a local anaesthetic cream (amethocaine) alone, and both medications together. It will also determine the safety of both medications.

Condition Intervention Phase
Pain Infant, Newborn Drug: morphine, amethocaine Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Systemic Analgesia and Local Anaesthesia for Percutaneous Venous Catheter Placement in Preterm Neonates
