Here's this week's sample CME board review question on procedural sedation...

A 1-year-old boy is transported to you after a moderate speed motor vehicle accident.

He was held by the unrestrained mother in the front passenger seat and hit the dashboard with his forehead (airbag was disabled) during the accident.

Physical exam shows a crying child that makes eye contact and can be distracted briefly from crying; the forehead shows a 4 cm deep laceration on the right side at the hair line and there is a questionable hemotympanum on the right side.

The child is in C-spine immobilization; chest, abdominal, back, extremity, and neurological exams are all normal.

Vital signs are P110, BP 95/70, RR crying, pOx 100% on room air.


Assuming appropriate repeat dosing as needed to extend sedation/analgesia time, which of the following is the most appropriate starting regimen for procedural sedation and analgesia just prior to a head CT followed immediately by laceration repair?

Answer Options:

Intravenous 0.75 mg propofol

Intravenous 0.5 – 0.75 mg/kg propafol in combination with 0.5 – 0.75 mg/kg ketamine

Intravenous 0.5 mg/kg ketamine

Intramuscular 3 mg/kg ketamine
