The future of pediatric sedation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Over the past 2 decades, pediatric sedation outside of the operating room has evolved rapidly and is an important part of the care of children. It is now an area of interest, research, and clinical practice which encompasses multiple specialties. Policies, procedures, and guidelines have been created worldwide by specialty organizations and even governmental agencies, all designed to maximize safety and outcome. Clinical research continues in efforts to further our knowledge of sedation practice, predictors of adverse outcome, and improve safety. There still remain many opportunities to optimize the safe practice of pediatric sedation as well as improve the efficiency and efficacy of its implementation [1].
