Trauma, pain experience/management, sedation, pediatric emergency care
Children and youth frequently present to the emergency department with injuries. Despite being a common reason to seek medical attention, optimal management strategies to minimize discomfort and pain are not fully understood yet. My research aims to better understand bone injuries in children, and improve the quality of pain management and sedation that is received in the emergency department while being treated for the injury.
Procedural Sedation RCT: prospective RCT of Propofol + Ketamine (Ketofol) vs Propofol + Fentanyl (Fentofol) for reduction of long-bone fractures. Recruiting any long bone fracture age 3-17 requiring procedural sedation for reduction.
