26 healthy children between the ages of 36 and 60 months (mean 35 months) who satisfied the selection criteria during a screening visit participated in this double blind study. The subjects were assigned randomly to receive either 75 mg/kg Triclofos elixir (Regimen I-21 children) or 50 mg/1kg Trichlofos elixir combined with 1 mg/kg promethazine elixir (Regimen II-22 children). All medications were given orally 45 minutes before treatment. During operative procedures all subjects received nitrous oxide/oxygen at a concentration of 35%. All the patients were restrained in a papoose board (Indigenous). The subjects were monitored for vital signs and evaluated for sedation and sleep, movement, crying and overall behaviour before, during and after the operative procedure. Regimen II was found to be superior to Regimen I with regard to behaviour management of difficult young children. However extremely apprehensive children were not good subjects for this sedation technique.
