Low Dose of Midazolam is Superior to Conventional Dose for Rapid Sequence Intubation in Emergency Department (ED)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Midazolam has been used in rapid sequence intubation for a long time, and the recommended dose is 0.1mg/kg. In some studies, however, the reduced dose has been used with the concern of hemodynamic instability. We would like to investigate that the low dose midazolam could be used rather than the standard recommended dose, and also compare it to the etomidate, recently used sedatives, with respect to the side effects and the easy performance of intubation.
