Limitations of the Studies

Some studies had small sample sizes, which may have been associated with type 2 error. Well-designed prospective studies are necessary to compare ketamine with other agents used to achieve sedation during various procedures. Additional studies are also necessary using nonparenteral (e.g., oral and rectal) routes of administration in pediatric patients.
