It’s well-accepted that there are a variety of complex pathways that contribute to abdominal pain in children; but what are these pathways, and how can they be measured? By combining the data from mobile body sensors and self-reporting from participants, researchers at Children’s Mercy Kansas City were able apply “big data” to identify pain triggers for each individual patient. The results were very encouraging.
Join Dr. Jennifer Schurman with the Division of Gastroenterology at Children’s Mercy Kansas City as she introduces us to the importance of monitoring and collecting data on triggers for abdominal pain and the value that data holds for individualizing pain treatment in the clinic setting, real-time.
