Risks of sedating children

Children with certain risk factors may need general anesthesia during the procedure.

Most sedation medicines are given through an intravenous (IV) line.

The following are some general guidelines: To make sedation as easy as possible for you and your child, please bring anything you think will be comforting or entertaining during expected wait times.

In addition, please remember to bring any communication systems your child may have.

If your child doesn't feel well on the day of the appointment, it may be hard to lie still.

If your child has a cold or is sick the day of the scan, please call the Imaging Department at (414) 266-8663.

Sometimes medicines can be given by mouth, depending on the child’s age and the type of procedure he or she is having.

A specially trained nurse will watch your child closely during sedation.

Our staff of highly trained pediatricians, nurse practitioners, nurses and child life specialists works very closely with your child and family to determine the most appropriate sedation plan.

Your child should not eat or drink anything prior to receiving sedation.

Use this guide: It is important that you follow these special instructions.

In this case, the best way to help prepare them is brief, factual information the morning of the procedure, or the day before the procedure.

Other children may need more time — a few days to a week — to process information, ask questions and get help working through coping strategies. Our triage nurse will call you the evening before your child's test or procedure to give you specific information about fasting.

    Recently I received a letter from a woman who told me nothing is working in her dating life. You want to go into this with the mindset of having fun meeting someone new and interesting in the real world. The funny thing is, men would never even think of giving up who they are for a relationship. A jerk doesn't make sure you feel emotionally, physically or spiritually safe.
