My son is being referred to the local hospital for an MRI. He is 7 months old and is 19.5 lbs. The lady I spoke with in the MRI dept. said that I would be prescribed an oral suspension to give him before his test. Does this sound right? I, as an adult, have had dozens of MRIs (sports clutz) and since it is an outpatient procedure IN the hospital, wouldn't you think THEY would be the ones giving him the meds? Maybe she had her facts backwards or I misunderstood. If your LO ever had a sedated MRI, who gave the meds? We were originally supposed to go to a Children's hospital, but insurance authorized the local hospital since they do the procedure as well.
my son had sedation before a dental procedure not for an MRI. but it is a little drink that makes them sleep. but I thought they didn't let the parents give the meds anymore. if you are the one giving the meds their only reason would be so your LO would already be asleep.
