It seems the government and other specialties are trying hard to make sedation as difficult as possible in the ED. We must persevere to provide the best procedural sedation for the maximal comfort and safety for our patients. This brief lecture was originally posted on the defunct EMCrit Lecture Site on 8/7/2009.
I'm reposting it here so I can post part II sometime this week.
This episode, Part I, covers general concepts on sedation as well as ketamine and etomidate/fentanyl.
Part III, to be done some time in the future, will cover really difficult sedations.
My friend Reub Strayer has a great PSA checklist as well
