Sedation for PFTs??

Here at CHOP, we’ve run out of chloral hydrate (for the foreseeable future), which has been the mainstay for the pulmonologists’ sedation for PFTs. We haven’t found a good alternative. Has anyone had success with anything else? Ideally it should be oral only, so no IV is necessary, but we’ll consider anything.

  1. Ron,
    this hasn’t come up as an issue in Delaware and we’ve had no chloral hydrate for a year or longer. I’ll ask the Pulmonary folks what they do.
