ACEP 2016 Policy on Out of Hospital Analgesia & Sedation

Out-of-Hospital Use of Analgesia and Sedation

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.
