One-Needle Approach to Paediatric Procedural Sedation using Ketamine: A Randomised Control Trial.

The primary objective of the study is to investigate whether ketamine given as a ‘one needle’ Intramuscular dose of Ketamine will provide adequate procedural sedation, while minimising distress by reducing the need for multiple needle sticks during attempts at securing Intravenous access.

The study will also investigate differences in adverse events, length of stay, and length of sedation.

The primary outcome of the study is the proportion of children who achieve adequate procedural sedation to allow completion of the required procedure with a single needle for the child. 

Trial aim to recruit 537 patients over a 24 month period.
