Id: NCT00596050

Organisation Name: Drexel University

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: August 2006

Last Update: May 9, 2017

Lead Sponsor: Drexel University College of Medicine

Brief Summary: There are multiple retrospective studies detailing the use of etomidate in pediatric procedural sedation but few to no prospective clinical trials. None have compared etomidate to ketamine, currently the most commonly used sedative in the emergency department for pediatric procedural sedation. The investigators propose a randomized, controlled trial comparing etomidate versus ketamine for procedural sedation for fracture reduction for children presenting with extremity fracture requiring sedation for reduction. The investigators hypothesize that etomidate in combination with fentanyl will have similar reduction of distress and procedural recall as ketamine in combination with midazolam.

Conditions:
  • Conscious Sedation Failure During Procedure
