Riley sedation team helps reduce pain and anxiety for pediatric patients




The Riley Children’s Health sedation team is ready to assist patients ranging from those going through cancer treatment to burn victims.

There are many procedures that children require sedation for, that adults do not. The sedation can help reduce anxiety and pain for a pediatric patient.

The highly skilled sedation team consists of a credentialed physician, like a critical care doctor or anesthesiologist, and sedation nurses.

The sedation team at Riley recently earned the designation of “Center of Excellence” which is considered the gold standard in pediatric sedation.
