Using sedation monitoring and protocol
Device: "Sedation Trial Monitor" is the name of the device used.
This is a pilot unblinded randomised controlled trial comparing sedation management using responsiveness (new intervention) with usual care (control group).
No Intervention: Control
- Proportion of time spent with low responsiveness (red colour code) during the first 48 hours in the ICU [ Time Frame: 8 month period ]The main purpose in the statistical analysis is not to test the statistical significance of the differences but to provide descriptive statistics for the full outcome study plan.
- Proportion of time spent with RASS score -4/-5 during the first 48 hours in the ICU. [ Time Frame: 8 months ]The main purpose in the statistical analysis is not to test the statistical significance of the differences but to provide descriptive statistics for the full outcome study plan.
