Greetings PEM Colleagues,
Our ENT team has recently approached our group about performing sedations for peritonsillar abscess drainage on younger/anxious children in the PED. I am interested in knowing if your institution does sedate in the PED for PTA drainage and your institution's experience with doing this. Many thanks.
