Some of our procedures require sedation. Our radiology staff will contact you if sedation is required.

If sedation is required, your child will need to follow our guidelines about eating and drinking before the procedure. See our NPO and Sedation Guidelines for more information, as well as our patient / family education material to learn more about Nitrous Oxide Sedation (Spanish). Talk with your physician if you feel this may be an option for your child.

If you elect sedation for your child, your provider must order sedation when scheduling the radiology procedure.

Our sedation nurses can help you understand our guidelines. Call one of the following locations:
