Abstract

Minor traumatic injuries are common in pregnancy, often subsequently requiring painful diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Pregnant women who are experiencing significant pain, distress, or fear may benefit from procedural sedation in the emergency department. In this review we examine the fetal safety of specific drugs used for procedural sedation.
