Brief Summary: Sedation is often needed for young children undergoing minor procedures in the emergency department (ED). Oral midazolam is one of the most commonly used regimens for children undergoing laceration repair but its sedative efficacy was shown to be suboptimal. In only one randomized controlled study oral ketamine has been used successfully for procedural sedation for laceration repair. A recent study showed that the combination of oral midazolam and oral ketamine provided deeper sedation compared with oral midazolam alone. However children treated wuth the combination of midazolam and ketamine required longer recovery


Oral ketamine can provide superior sedation to oral midazolam in children requiring sedation for laceration repair.
