In this post I link to the YouTube video “Sedation And Anelgesia For The Non-Intensivist” from the YouTube Videos list of the COVID-19 Toolbox:
This video is intended to assist healthcare providers with the care of critically ill patients only. It is to be used as a guide ONLY for patients who have breathing tubes and are mechanically ventilated (on breathing machines). It will introduce you to sedative and analgesic medications that are used in the intensive care unit setting only. It will provide recommendations for use of sedation and analgesia in standard settings, but it will also provide recommendations for use in resource limited settings such as in the battle against COVID 19. I do not have any financial disclosures or any personal interests in the medications that are discussed. Please confirm all dosages prior to administration.
