Abstract: Dorsal penile nerve block (DPNB), ring block (RB), and eutectic mixture of local anesthetics (EMLA) all control pain effectively during neonatal circumcision (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, systematic review). An RB may provide superior pain relief toDPNB and EMLA (SOR: B, limited-quality evidence). Using a Mogen clamp reduces pain by shortening procedure time (SOR: A, randomized controlled trials [RCTs]). Effective adjuncts to pain relief include nonnutritive sucking (NNS; a pacifier without sucrose), a sucrose pacifier, and use of a padded chair (SOR: A, RCTs).
