  • CT's are easy, they are quick. the only thing is that they have to be perfectly still, so sedation would be a good option. Nebutol is a good sedation med, they wake up feeling fine, a little loopy for a while, but otherwise ok. My son has been having head scans for 16 years now, so I'm more than WELL versed on this stuff lol. Best of luck to ya hun

  • Oooh and if by chance they aren't using the Fast CAT, which takes about 5-10 minutes, and do a longer scan that's like 30 minutes another good med is Propfal, it's got lipids and an anti-nausea agent in it, again. I know all the ins and outs of this. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions
