On today’s show, we have Dr Reuben Strayer of EMergency Medicine Updates, Dr Nicholas Chrimes of ClinicalCred and Dr Andy Buck of EDExam discuss and debate the topic of best practice in ED procedural sedation. Nick argues the concerns of aspiration risk in emergency patients with likely full stomachs. Reuben discusses the ED literature around safety of procedural sedation as well as his best practice approach. Andy provides some clinical context with examples from his own ED work.
