How Can You Measure How Much Pain a Baby Feels?

When a baby is born early, their first months of life can be hectic and painful. Doctors can implant breathing tubes, and perform multiple surgeries as the baby’s young organs continue developing.

Clinicians’ practice flipped in the late ’80s after a key review paper compiled the overwhelming evidence of physiological traces of pain, and today preemies get anesthesia and opioids just like any other patient. But that practice just got more complicated. In December, the FDA mandated …

The first time I met Jimmy Breslin at New York Newsday I thought he was sitting down because he already had such a huge reputation I didn’t realize that this living giant of New York City was actually shorter than me. But that didn’t stop me from always looking up to him. I was ecstatic when my publisher hired him away from the Daily News to join our side of the city’s tabloid war in 1988—even if it was for half a million bucks. Breslin was no Times man, as he’d say, although he did once entice the New York Times‘ Abe Rosenthal to join him at a bar in Queens, proving that some of the colorful characters he chronicled …

Daniel Dempsey was a grad student stationed in the jungles of Monteverde, Costa Rica when he first encountered the danger of a snakebite. The biologist was walking through the forest one day, catching bats to study them for malaria, when he almost stepped on the black, arrow-shaped head of an enormous pit viper—a fer-de-lance. That night as he described his encounter to the local family he was staying with, they began to tear up. They told him that earlier that year a “terciopelo,” what Costa Ricans call their country’s deadliest snake, had bitten the family’s five year-old niece. The hospital, a few hours drive away, didn’t have any antivenom in their stocks. She didn’t make it. It was Dempsey’s memory of …
