Procedural sedation in the Emergency Department; A comprehensive analysis of a prospective registry of consecutive procedural sedations and telephone follow-up

The aim is to examine if a registry of patient related parameters as well as patient and physician satisfaction with a sedative episode will be effective.

Grant ID: EMSS-2008-004-TRESTON-PROCEDURAL

Lay Summary

Patients frequently present to the Emergency Department (ED) requiring brief but painful procedures as part of their medical treatment. Completion of these procedures in a safe and timely manner should be a core competency of an Emergency Physician. Insufficient data currently exists to guide the Emergency Physicians in the conduct of these procedures. A specific and highly comprehensive registry of patient related parameters, patient and physician satisfaction with the sedative episode is required.
