This study discovered significant variation among children's hospitals in the use of sedated echocardiiography for children <30 months of age with non-refractory Kawasaki disease prior to the American Heart Association 2017 Kawasake disease guideline update. Consideration should be given to performing sedated echocardiography as it may reduce the need for repeat echos without impacting length of stay or total costs.
