  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to determine if intranasal ketamine is equally as effective and safe as intramuscular ketamine for procedural sedation in pediatric patients.

Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)

Further study details as provided by University of Iowa:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Efficacy of sedation (Observation Scale of Behavioral Distress-Revised) [ Time Frame: Up to 60 minutes ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Onset of sedation [ Time Frame: Minutes it take until the patient is cooperative enough for th procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time to awakening [ Time Frame: Up to 60 minutes after completion of the procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to discharge [ Time Frame: From the time when the procedure is completed until the patient is discharged home ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Patient satisfaction survey [ Time Frame: Approximately 24 hours after the completion of the procedure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Healthcare provider satisfaction survey [ Time Frame: 30 minutes after the procdure ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Rate their satisfaction for the following questions: patient toleration of the medication, onset of sedation, comfort of patient during procedure, and adverse effects.
