Ventilator-treated children often require sedation in order to facilitate the ventilation. Sedatives alone or in combination with analgesics are commonly used for this purpose. In some cases, however, the addition of a neuromuscular blocking agent (NMB) may be necessary. In this article a survey is presented regarding both pharmacological and non-pharmacological means of improving the ventilator treatment in ventilated children. The most commonly employed sedatives, opioids and NMB's are discussed. The authors stress that whichever drug is used, it should be administered to the children guided by its effects rather than by a rigid scheme. In that respect monitoring of the treatment is important.
