Advise on Safe Med Use for Rapid Sequence Intubation

You may be asked to be part of an "airway management team" to help guide use of rapid sequence intubation (RSI) meds.

There's limited evidence to determine which sedating and paralyzing meds to use during emergent intubations. Help your team choose based on side effects, pharmacokinetics, and patient history.

Induction agents are fast-acting sedatives given to quickly induce unconsciousness. Use IV-push etomidate, propofol, or ketamine.
