Sedating infants

18-Jun-2016 14:04

The aim of this study was to investigate the safety and efficacy of a low-dose propofol-based sedation regimen in infants and children requiring sedation for ambulatory cranial and spinal MRI examinations.Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) requires the patient to stay still up to an hour or more in a noisy and claustrophobic environment.Especially infants and children may not lie still for long enough without special care or drug-induced sleep.Background Propofol is widely used for infants and children requiring sedation for magnetic resonance imaging.

All MRI examinations could be completed without paradoxical reaction or sedation failure.

Conclusion This sedation regimen provides the shortest induction time so far described, a rare demand for additional sedation, a low incidence of respiratory events, and a rapid recovery.
