In the field of pediatric gastroenterology, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy has established itself as a diagnostic and therapeutic tool. In order to increase patient tolerance during this procedure, deep sedation is essential. Children are at a higher risk of serious adverse effects from procedural sedation; thus, their safety is a primary issue throughout this procedure. Multiple studies have been done to find the ideal method for procedural sedation in terms of ease of administration, quality, safety of sedation and recovery profile, but the consensus seems lacking. In this study we will compare between nasal inhalation of sevoflurane versus intravenous ketamine, midazolam and propofol for pediatrics undergoing upper gastrointestinal endoscopy.
