Example text

Adverse effects from cortisol suppression have not been reported with one-time use in the ED. Ketamine Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic derived from phencyclidine (PCP) that induces a cataleptic state rather than true unconsciousness. It results in analgesia, amnesia and anesthesia. Ketamine stimulates the endogenous release of catecholamines causing a rise in heart rate, blood pressure, myocardial consumption and bronchodilation. For this reason, it is the induction agent of choice for hypotensive, hypovolemic or bronchospastic patients requiring intubation.

Multiple factors must be considered in this decision, including psychosocial, biological, medicolegal, and, unfortunately, financial. When possible, a patient’s wishes should be included in this decision. With the advent of more aggressive outpatient strategies (low-molecular-weight heparin for DVT, longer-acting antibiotics with greater potency) and research suggesting similar outcomes in selected patients, many patients previously hospitalized are now being safely treated as outpatients with close follow-up.

A drawback to their use is their great dosing variability, depending on the patient’s gender and age. Midazolam is a myocardial depressant and reduces systemic vascular resistance. It should be used with caution in elderly patients and those with hemodynamic compromise. Though midazolam may be used as the primary induction or adjunctive agent during RSI, it is more commonly utilized for sedation in combination with an analgesic agent in patients who are intubated. Neuromuscular blockade NMBAs do not provide analgesia, sedation or amnesia; they are used to paralyze the patient, facilitating rapid endotracheal intubation.
