    SEDATION

Assessing the adequacy of sedation. Why and how

Ball J.

From the Lecturer in Intensive Care Medicine St. George’s Hospital Medical School, London, UK

ICU patients management frequently requires sedation for patient comfort, for therapeutic benefits, such as reduction of organ tissue oxygen demand, and to facilitate care. Oversedation induces hemodynamic instability, delays weaning, causes higher ferquency of nosocomial infections and lengthens ICU stay. The endpoints of sedative drugs titration are discussed.
