A randomized trial of protocol-directed sedation management
for mechanical ventilation in an Australian intensive care unit.
These included vascular access catheters in a femoral position in 32 patient days, timing of procedures in 18 patient days, sedation management
in 12 patient days (agitation in 9 patient days and low Glasgow Coma Score in 3 patient days) and early ward transfer in 9 patient days.
Because of SEDLine's unique four separate EEG channels in a single integrated algorithm - enabling greater control and sedation management
- I believe it will also complement the use of Target Control Infusion narcotic based anesthesia, which is a widely used technique in Europe.
The brain function monitors using only the algorithm-generated score do not add significantly to light and moderate sedation management
for periodontal surgery.
2006) in relation to ease of use, and (b) the Modified Comfort Scale (MCS) (Carnevale & Razack, 2002), as no single tool to adequately address analgesia and sedation management
in the ventilated children has been identified.
Its first four target areas of expertise are improving glycaemic control, diagnostic tests for insulin resistance and pancreatic function, sedation management
and ventilation management (oxygen control).
The temporal association with changes in sedation management
practice, including primary sedative agent choice during MV, may explain these findings.
The neuromuscular order sheet listed several standardized neuromuscular blocking agents based on weight-based dosing and prompted clinicians to add on the pain and sedation pathways to ensure that adequate pain and sedation management
NASDAQ: ASPM) announced that it has amended its product development agreement with Boston Scientific Corporation to provide a two year extension to the period during which Boston Scientific may exercise an option to distribute sedation management
technology for interventional and specialty medical procedure suites.
Although clinical evidence is far from definitive, best practice recommendations for analgesia and sedation management
in mechanically ventilated adults have been developed (12,13) and include regular assessment of pain and sedation with validated scales, setting goal scores and regularly reviewing response to treatments (12,13).
In August 2002, Aspect announced a strategic alliance with Boston Scientific to introduce new sedation management
technology to interventional and specialty medical procedure suites, including the gastrointestinal endoscopy suite, the interventional cardiology suite and the interventional radiology suite.
Subsequent investigations have been consistent with the notion that strategies that reduce sedation depth such as algorithms and protocols for sedation management
(3-5) and the use of validated sedation scales (6) can improve patient outcomes.
