Providing sedation and analgesia is an integral part of emergency care for children. To become facile at pediatric pain control and sedation, clinicians must develop expertise regarding proper monitoring, drugs and doses, potential side effects, and strategies to select the best agent for a given procedure and clinical setting. Currently available agents, methods, and monitoring guidelines are reviewed with an emphasis on conscious sedation.
