We recently had to offer VIP treatment for a kid getting a stat MRI, and had
the word handed down from on-high that Anesthesia needed to be involved in
all such cases. It turned out to be a good thing: the kid had an LMA and was
nice and docile for the entire scan.
2 questions: what long-active sedation agents would folks use if not
anesthesia? Does anyone else have an anesthesia-only policy for MRI's?
