Abstract

Sedation and analgesia are essential components of the ED management of pediatric patients. Used appropriately, there are a number of medications and techniques that can be used safely in the emergency care of infants and children. Emergency physicians should be competent in the use of multiple sedatives and analgesics. Adequate equipment and monitoring, staff training, discharge instructions and continuous quality management should be an integral part of the ED use of these agents.
