Id: NCT01501786

Organisation Name: Ibaraki Children's Hospital

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: January 2012

Last Update: July 30, 2013

Lead Sponsor: Ibaraki Children's Hospital

Brief Summary: Normal cardiac and respiratory functions should be maintained during pediatric cardiac catheterization. Propofol has become a popular choice for sedation in children, however, it depresses cardiac and respiratory functions. Some investigators reported that ketamine attenuates its depressant effect, but it remains unclear whether ketamine reduces cardiac and respiratory depression caused by propofol in pediatric cardiac catheterization.

Conditions:
  • Congenital Heart Disease
  • Sedated for Cardiac Catheterization
