Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The demand of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures performed on children outside of the operating room and the intensive care unit has substantially increased in recent years; the availability of non-invasive monitoring, short-acting opioids and sedatives has broadened the possibilities of sedation and analgesia practiced by non anesthesiologists in different settings. Adequate knowledge about drugs and their related problems are unquestionably requested to warrant procedures' efficacy and safety. This paper describes the drugs that non anesthesiologists have to use during procedural sedation, giving information about their basic characteristics and adverse outcomes.
