Economic evaluation of propofol for sedation
of patients admitted to Intensive Care Units.
Research questions were: 1) Do the N-PASS tool subscales of sedation
and pain/agitation exhibit internal consistency as measured by Cronbach's alpha?
Non-invasive blood pressures (systolic and diastolic), peripheral oxygen saturation, heart and respiratory rates and Ramsay Sedation
Scores were assessed at baseline, after applying the drugs and then every 5 minutes thereafter.
Guttormson, Ph.D., R.N., from the Marquette University College of Medicine in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and colleagues surveyed 177 members of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses using the Nurse Sedation
Practices Scale to measure nurses' self-reported sedation
practices and factors that affect them.
The randomised trial suggested that virtual reality hypnosis distraction (VRHD) could be a valuable drug-free alternative for reducing anxiety and procedure-related pain without the side- effects and longer recovery time associated with traditional intravenous sedation
Volatile anaesthetics are alternatives to iv drugs for sedation
of ventilator-dependent patients, and they were applied via the Anaesthetic Conserving Device (AnaConDa).
Hence most patients demand a form of sedation
along with the local anaesthetic.
Objective: To compare sedation
in cockatiels (Nymphicus hollandicus) after intranasal administration of midazolam and midazolam-butorphanol.
As far as contemporary sedation
is concerned, benzodiazepines (midazolam), dexmedetomidine opioids are most often used .
In our endoscopy unit, patients were sedated either by gastroenterologists (conscious sedation
) or by anesthesiologists (deep sedation
In emergency settings, a set of drugs have been used in patients for procedural sedation
,  of which etomidate is the choice that can be used as sedative hypnotic agents.
