MKO Melt

Happy Wednesday!

Does anyone use or had a request to use MKO Melts? One of our orthopedic surgeons wants more information on the product- I have yet to inquire with him about his potential intent and he may just want more information. What I do (think I) know is that this would still constitute "procedural sedation" or "moderate sedation" despite the fact that it is oral. It appears that I would be able to order like any other 503B process or even 503A if I prefer. I wanted to reach out to find out more about how facilities may be using this product.
