Sedation is typically used for common diagnostic tests that require prolonged immobilization such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed axial tomography (CAT) scanning.
Some cases that require sedation may also necessitate the use of analgesics to decrease pain associated with a procedure or test.
A smaller second dose usually will be given if a baby is not asleep within 30 minutes.
