|Table 3: Comparison of complications in different studies on pediatric procedural sedation.|
*Serious adverse effects define as allergic reaction, aspiration, cardiovascular complications, need for resuscitation, unplanned admission, use of reversal agents, abnormal SpO2, prolonged sedation, and paradoxical reaction. |
§Desaturation defines as a sustained drop in oxygen saturation 5% from baseline for more than 1 minute and unresponsive to blow-by oxygen at 6 L/min, and/or head repositioning, suctioning, or stimulation.
¥Transient desaturation which was improved by head repositioning and increasing oxygen flow.
