Deep Sedation for Children

Lutheran Children's Hospital offers deep sedation to help children relax and to keep them from moving during MRI scans, CT scans and certain other tests or procedures. Deep sedation services are provided through the day clinic by a team that includes a pediatric specialist and pediatric nurse. A child life specialist is also available to help each child feel more comfortable.
