For me po versed works great- I give 0.5 mg/kg -max 10 mg- with OJ or
something. It is not a hypnotic, but they get "zombie" enough to get the
CT done. Once in a while it causes agitation by disinhibition ( I guess)
and I have to repeat the dose in 30-45 minutes.
IV Pento or Nembutal is NOT CONCIOUS SEDATION, it is anesthesia.
