Id: NCT01519154

Organisation Name: University Children's Hospital, Zurich

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: March 2012

Last Update: December 2, 2014

Lead Sponsor: Achim Schmitz

Brief Summary: Children < 10 years of age often need deep sedation or anaesthesia to allow elective diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging; standard routine protocols are

propofol induction without other sedative (Propofol much as needed) or hypnotic drugs and propofol infusion 10 mg/kg h
propofol induction with ketamine 1 mg /kg (little repetitive Propofol doses as needed) and propofol infusion 5 mg / kg h

both protocols are compared with regard to clinical outcome and, in cases with cerebral MRI, cerebral perfusion/blood flow.

Hypothesis:

reduces recovery time compared to propofol mono sedation
combination of ketamine-propofol increases incidence of Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) compared to propofol mono sedation
combination of ketamine-propofol increases global cerebral blood flow and changes regional distribution of cerebral perfusion compared to propofol mono sedation

Conditions:
  • Sedation
