Intervention/exposure
Study type
Interventional
Description of intervention(s) / exposure
Comparison of neublized fentanyl to intravenous morphine (standard of care). Participants will be receiving nebulized fentanyl.

A "Faces" pain scale will be used for patients 5-13 years old with a clinical extremity fracture. Patients will received their randomized intervention for 30 minutes, with pain assessments at 0, 15 and 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, patient care will revert to current standard (intravenous morphine as needed).
Intervention code [1] 752 0
Treatment: Drugs
Comparator / control treatment
Participants will be receiving intravenous morphine (standard of care) and nebulized saline or just intravenous saline.

Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Numbered, premixed intravenous and nebulized treatment groups will be placed in a central pyxis machine. Sequential treatment pairs, previously randomly assigned, will be allocated in order of patient presentation. Blinding will be removed at the point of data analysis.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Randomisation by coin toss
