A significant and growing number of children receive sedation for procedures performed outside of the operating room each year [1–4]. The range of procedures performed and number of different providers of sedation have also been expanded appreciably. While a large number of studies have reported on adverse events occurring in association with procedural sedation in many of these settings [1–14], benchmarks for sedation-related adverse event rates have not been established.
