Fellow PEM Docs,

We have been using propofol in our PED for about a year now in 
children 12 and above.  Our EM and PEM docs are credentialed and 
perfom these sedations for short procedures.  We are working on plan 
to lower the age of use to 5 or even lower.  Does anyone have 
expereicne with Propofol use in your pedaitric ED's?  If so, are you 
willing to share your sedation guidlines and or policies?  Who 
administers it and under what conditions?

Please feel free to email me directly.  it would be nice to work out some 
standard use guidlines for our colleques in other PED's as well.
