Recruitment Details
Key information relevant to the recruitment process for the overall study, such as dates of the recruitment period and locations
Patients were in the Medical ICU or Neuro ICU at Duke University Hospital or the mixed ICU at Durham Regional. If patients met all inclusion criteria and no exclusion criteria, the attending was asked if patient's legally authorized representative (LAR) could be approached for consent. Enrollment started May of 2008 and closed April of 2011.

Pre-Assignment Details
Significant events and approaches for the overall study following participant enrollment, but prior to group assignment
Patients were only excluded from the trial after consent and prior to randomization if they no longer met inclusion criteria, for instance the medical team decided to remove sedatives.

Reporting Groups
  Description
RASS Plus BIS Participants in this arm will receive sedation assessment with the RASS scale augmented with BIS monitoring.
RASS Only Participants will receive sedation assessment only using the RASS scale which is the standard of care at our institution
