When you have to put the child to sleep for a painful procedure

When dosing oral midazolam for anxiolysis – like when you’re doing a procedure – you can dose above the listed limit of 0.5 mg/kg. In fact, you can dose up to 1 mg/kg!

For the child who is preschool and under I will typically give the following dose: 0.7 to 0.8 mg/kg

DO NOT FORGET THE PAIN KILLER!
