Inpatient Pediatric Sedation Requests to the Diagnostic and Therapy Center (DTC) - Clinical Hub, References, AFCH/Pediatric Resources , Pediatric Sedation

Focus

  1. Make patient NPO!
  2. Place IV and administer IV fluids.
  3. Complete
    • Important: Complete contact information
  4. Submit to the DTC
    • Directly deliver request to DTC Coordinator
      or
    • Call DTC Coordinator @ 2-4402 and tube request to station 911
  5. For radiology requests: Have inpatient ward HUC enter any radiology orders ASAP.
  6. For other procedures (e.g. PICC lines, LPs): Determine availability of individual performing requested procedure.
  7. Assure that a family member (individual that can consent) is available in person (preferable) or by phone.
    • Once the information is received, the request will be processed by the DTC.
    • Our goal is to accommodate all Inpatient Pediatric Sedation requests.
    • In the event we cannot conduct the sedation due to illness severity issues or scheduling problems, we will facilitate directing the request to another service.
    • The requesting service will be notified at that time and informed of any contacts that need to be made.

Guidelines

  1. Patients and Procedures that should be sent directly to anesthesia: DVI procedures, MRI in patients < 3 months of age, OSA (unless minimal sedation required)
  2. Enteral midazolam can be given on the wards for ASA 1 & 2 patients as long as there is an identified staff MD.
