A Look Inside Pediatric Sedation

Did you know that Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center is the only hospital in the state to offer a coordinated Pediatric Sedation program? Our new Pediatric Sedation Unit, complete with “Rivers and Waters” theme, offers a child-friendly environment for kids and families to make their experience more enjoyable, and the care is coordinated by a team of pediatric intensivists and hospitalists who are all in for Maine kids.

If you’re not familiar with Pediatric Sedation, it’s a unique program that uses medication and non-medication approaches specific to each child’s unique needs with the goal of accomplish necessary medical procedures in a way that is comfortable, safe, and effective for our young patients.

Amy Movius, MD, director, Pediatric Sedation, walks us through the process of pediatric sedation in this new video. Have a look!
