ACEP 2016 Policy on Out of Hospital Analgesia & Sedation
— John Hinds (@DocJohnHinds) November 28, 2013
Editors’ note: Ketamine officially endorsed by ACEP as prehospital sedation for acute agitation needing ultrarapid control, especially for suspected excited delirium syndrome
I dont endorse midazolam as being the ideal prehospital sedative for agitation. Droperidol is superior. Haloperidol is acceptable alternative.
