    • Overview

      This activity is intended for health-system pharmacists and nurses. On this journey through the process of intubation to extubation and we will review the process of intubation and discuss the most commonly utilized drugs and the rationale behind their use to include etomidate, benzodiazepines, neuromuscular blockers, propofol and ketamine. Now that the patient is intubated, we must keep them sedated until extubation. Common sedation medications such propofol, benzodiazepines and dexmedetomidine will be examined. Finally we must wake up and extubate the patient. We will discuss the most commonly used drugs for the reversal of medications used during the intubation process including an in depth look at the reversal of neuromuscular blockade. We will compare sugammadex to the current standard reversal medication and discuss its potential impact on patient care.
