Previous studies have not addressed issues such as requirement for escalation of care after discharge (ie, emergency department visits or hospitalization), or parental satisfaction with their child's sedation experience.
This study was undertaken to evaluate the recovery and delayed adverse events after discharge of children who received sedation for magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography.
The sedation may also help make your child forget what happened during the treatment.
For treatments that are painful, your child will also be given medicine for pain.
Although sedation-related adverse events in children in the hospital setting have been extensively reported, limited data are available regarding adverse events after discharge home.
Children were discharged from the hospital when they met the following preestablished discharge criteria: return to baseline vital signs, level of consciousness close to baseline, and the ability to maintain a patent airway.
Valerian’s chemical structure: unraveling the sesquiterpene isobutanyl side chain According to Joe Chappell, professor of plant biochemistry at the University of Kentucky and director of the Medicinal Plant Consortium, “Chemicals like you find in , especially the sesquiterpene molecules, have represented a conceptual challenge ...
because they’re very unique in their structure.” More specifically, sesquiterpenes contain an isobutenyl side chain.
It describes what sedation is, what happens when your child gets sedation, and how to care for your child after the test or treatment.
Your child may find the test or treatment frightening or uncomfortable.
