Journal of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition, 05/17/2012Brecelj J et al.
The sedation protocol with ketamine is safe and efficient. The starting dose of ketamine should be at least 1mg/kg. There is an advantage to the use of midazolam as premedication before ketamine in paediatric patients because the frequency of emergence reactions in hospital was reduced compared with sole ketamine use.
