Procedural Sedation for Infants, Children, and Adolescents

By American Academy of Pediatrics Section on Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine
Edited by Joseph D. Tobias, MD, FAAP and Joseph P. Cravero, MD, FAAP

New! Invasive and noninvasive procedures are a common and necessary component in the management of infants and children with acute and chronic diseases. As technology continues to expand, there are an increasing number of techniques that require procedural sedation outside of the operating room.

Authored by experts in a variety of specialties, Procedural Sedation for Infants, Children, and Adolescents is a comprehensive guide for the initial design and implementation of a procedural sedation program and a tool to educate pediatric health professionals on medications used for sedation, associated adverse events, and the treatment of these adverse effects.

Contents include:

Pre-sedation evaluation

Documentation and parental instructions

Monitoring for procedural sedation


Specific clinical scenarios

Non-pharmacologic interventions

Topical and local anesthetic agents

Quality improvement and assurance

and more
