Everybody Just Calm Down: Sedation Strategies for Fractious Patients

30 Oct 2020
Clinical Theater 1

Fractious patients are not only dangerous to the people trying to handle them, they are also dangerous to themselves. Fractious patients require a higher dose of sedative/anesthetic drugs to achieve unconsciousness when compared to calm patients and the adverse effects of these drugs are primarily dose-dependent. Drugs, techniques, and tips for getting fractious patients safely to the hospital and for handling the patients safely in the hospital will be covered in this lecture.
