Disparities in the emergency department management of pediatric migraine by race, ethnicity, and language preference

Children who report to the emergency department have differences in pain management, based on their racial and ethnic origins. By REaL, we analyzed treatment trends and results in our ED for acute migraine in pediatric patients. Patients who were Asian, Black or African American, Hispanic, or had a language other than English had a significant risk of receiving IV therapy, but patients who were nHW and preferred English had a higher risk of receiving IV therapy. Patients with migraine who were Black, Asian, and Hispanic, or LOE had a reduced chance of receiving IV therapies, but patients who were not nHW were more likely to receive IV therapy, despite similar initial pain scores. These findings are consistent with previous studies on pain management inequalities, and they point to another area where we must increase equity for patients in the ED.
