Id: NCT04822064

Lead Sponsor: Seoul National University Hospital

Brief Summary: In Korea, oral chloral hydrate is still widely used for pediatric procedural sedation. The primary objective of the study is to evaluate the effect of intranasal dexmedetomidine (2mcg/kg) and ketamine (3mg/kg) on the success rate of rescue sedation after failed sedation (PSSS=4,5) with chloral hydrate (50mg/kg) The hypothesis of this study is that the intranasal dexmedetomidine (2mcg/kg) and ketamine (3mg/kg) will improve the success rate of rescue sedation (PSSS=1,2,3) within 15 minutes. This is a prospective, parallel-arm, single-blinded, multi-center, randomized controlled trial comparing the effect of intranasal dexmedetomidine (2mcg/kg) and ketamine (3mg/kg) with oral chloral hydrate (50mg/kg) in pediatric patients after failed sedation attempt with oral chloral hydrate. Prior to the procedure, each patient will be randomized in the control arm (oral chloral hydrate) or study arm (intranasal dexmedetomidine and ketamine).
